    Zeitgeists and History: The 2010 indieWIRE Poll at a Glance

    Among the 124 features submitted for best film in indieWIRE's annual poll of critics and bloggers, a not-insignificant thirteen percent mentioned a movie more than three years old.

We are so used to seeing women as objects of desire, that when they are recipients of pleasure we don't know how to deal. It's not enough to show girls or women roll...
