“Prince of Swine (The Indie Fest Film Awards Winner) boldly offers a controversial and politically incorrect statement about the relationship between men and women. It puts feminism on trial, and the verdict is that feminism has become a big joke." Thomas Baker: The Indie Fest.
“I loved Prince of Swine. The movie underscores what I have been saying all along that despite the superficial surface differences, all men are essentially the same, and all women are essentially the same. It gives a very strong evolutionary psychological message that men exchange resources and status for sex and women exchange sex for resources and status.” Satoshi Kanazawa. London School of Economics.
Mark Toma is the writer, director and producer of Prince of Swine and calls himself a feminist. His controversial and outspoken views on new feminism in relation to male and female relationships has reinvigorated the feminist debate and draws punches at the very notion of feminist progress when “scantily clad materialistic celebrities”
Mark says of his leading female character, Nell, “She's the last true feminist in America. I guess you could say we put feminism on trial in this movie and our verdict is, it's become a huge joke. It's us bending over backwards to defend your right to be gold diggers. This is a comedy, so I'm laughing about it. She is what the feminists promised and what they should have become. The fact that I had to create her in art because she doesn't exist, or at least isn't appreciated in the world, is a sign of how badly feminists have failed. You're the worst of both worlds. You haven't done anything important for the world and you don't know how to make men happy. You're not what we want; you don't even think it's your job to be what we want any more. Most feminists -and you're all goddamn feminists, I don't care if you deny it -would be insulted if someone accused them of trying to be what men want.” University of Southern California School of Cinema interview with Lisa Michelle.
Mark Toma isn’t out to make any friends. He is here to start a feminist revolution.
