I attended the Canadian premier viewing of The Red Pill in Edmonton, ABon October 27, 2016.
The film itself was.. at times.. very hard to watch... at times funny..at times I could hear everyone bite their tongues.. at other timesspitting out in disgust.
Cassie Jay pieced together something marvelous... serious as hell...heartbreaking at times... she captured the struggle of both hers, andlikely everyone in that theatre, faced in their Red Pill Journey.
Cassie also did something brilliant... she let the hypocrites tiethemselves in knots. She gave them a platform.. and put a camera onthem.. asked them a straightforward question.. and let them exposetheir biases of their own free will.
The hard parts were not so much the interviews of the people who arehostile to men and boys.. it was the realisation of just how deep, howburied, the Red Pill perspective really is in the world. There is adesperation, and a hope.. but the struggle was the underlyingconnection from start to finish of this film.
Oh... and what a relief this film must be to people like Paul Elam andTom Golden and Warren Farrell. Decades of struggling to say what thisfilm is saying coming to life in a sceptical yet honest format.. anddelivered unapologetic-ally to the world at large.
What struck me the most, as I sat there at the end of the film, wasthat the film existed at all. This film is not good news to feminists..as it gets out it will shake the very foundations of the narrativesthey claim to be supporting. The Red Pill Movie is a direct threat tothe people who profit from the feminist false threat narrative.
So expect this film to see resistance like no other. Expect this filmto be ignored as long as possible... then Cassie will be slandered,portrayed as a sell-out, a liar... the typical feminist reactions.
I was both overjoyed yet deeply sad. This emotional roller-coaster ofbeing happy for the existence of this little piece of truth in filmcompared to the massive task of having to coax the world to break fromthe hypnosis of the mainstream entertainment/programming to facesomething a lot of them don't want to face.
That said, it needs to get done. At the end of the film the audiencesquestions surrounded how to get this film out there, and others likeit.
Every human on earth should see this. This is one of those films thatis so timely, so vital, so critical to the progress of our civilizationthat it needs to get as much exposure as possible.
If you can manage to find a showing that is within travel range.. makethe investment, you won't regret the experience.

Cassie Jaye is currently the bravest woman in Hollywood. Her new film,'The Red Pill' has more testosterone in it than any Kathryn Bigelowmovie. To call it a must-see is an understatement as she explores anarea that will instantly outrage any card-carrying feminist and at a Q& A after the West Coast Premiere, Friday night, October 14, shereveals that making it cost her friendships and support from acommunity made up mostly of women who say they want to see more womenfilmmakers, but really only mean that if they're promoting materialthey approve of. Jaye cuts through the hypocrisy to bring us herpersonal experiences (a splash of narrative combined with a documentaryformat)when she stumbles upon a rabbit hole that swallows her up andforces her to question everything she believed in as a former feministwhen searching the term 'rape culture' leads her to discover the worldof the MRA. If 'The Red Pill' can't move you, your blinders are on waytoo tight.

Many people are starting to learn what happens when you debate with afeminist, or question feminism in public. Facts suddenly becomemorbidly offensive. Logic goes out of the window. Ironically, even theconcept of 'equality' takes a back seat. This film takes adispassionate and balanced look at the men's rights movement and it'sstruggle with the feminist narrative.
I saw the red pill during the first UK screening on October 30 and Iwas profoundly impressed with the elegantly simple approach to thetopic. We follow Cassie Jay on a simple journey, starting with herdescribing her experiences of being objectified as a teenage actressand her decision to look into 'rape culture' after learning of twohorrific rape cases. She stumbled across the controversial website 'avoice for men' and proceeded to fall down the proverbial rabbit hole.
All the men's rights movement has ever wanted was fair representationand a chance to be heard. Something the mainstream media has takengreat pains to prevent. Thankfully to men all over the world, the redpill delivers a fair hearing in droves.
I implore EVERYONE to watch this film. It is arguably the mostimportant documentary of our generation.
The Red Pill chronicles filmmaker Cassie Jaye's journey following the mysterious and polarizing Men's Rights Movement. The Red Pill explores today's gender war and asks the question "what is the future of gender equality?"
