    Where are the women directors on the Round Table?

    Your question implies that mainstream Hollywood even gives women opportunities. There are plenty of great female directors but I don't think many of them are given major films to direct.

    They could ask some more interesting questions, I wonder if Paul Thomas Anderson will ever do one of these, I know he has no film out at the moment but I'd like to see him take part.

    I don't understand Russell's views on his films because I think Huckabees is by far his best, most interesting film.
