Film Top 10 – 2016


Respire
#52FilmsByWomen Twelve crazy months after peeking my nose around the corner of films directed by women I find myself having seen more films that almost everyone else I know. I guess that says most about the state of film and the roles of men and women and other groups of people. I […]

L'avenir
#52FilmsByWomen After a crazy busy month with 13 new films November has been a lot easier to deal with. It’s probably a lot due to my excessive #Noirvember film noir binging. I’ve only seen two new films directed by women this month, one of which was pretty much an accidental […]

The Disobedient
#52FilmsByWomen This month #52FilmsByWomen passes the halfway mark. In time and in numbers, although after six months I am past 26 films, giving me a little buffer in case I need it. The total film count is now at 30/52, already four more than being truly halfway. I still keep the list […]
