This is familiar territory for Menkes, with a twist. In her previous films, men are at best a physical burden and at worst a physical threat to a female protagonist. That's still true in Dissolution, but this time, Menkes explores the behavior and psyche of the man after he commits the act of violence. It's not that Dissolution has a different worldview—it's the same fatalistic feminism, but this time seen, as things so often are in Menkes movies, from the flip side.
