We revisit the weird double image of Magic Mike, a “quiet lives of desperation” dance movie that was marketed almost solely based on its five or six minutes of male strip revues. Which both sells the subtler moments of the script short and disguises the unmasked contempt that the film overall has for women. It’s…well, listen. There’s a reason we’re covering it here.
