    Cross Post: Heroines of Cinema: 15 Female Directors Who Made Their First Feature After Turning 40

    Two weeks ago, this column profiled ten female directors aged 40 or younger . My reasons for imposing an age limit were clearly stated, but it had the unfortunate side effect of excluding an entire demographic from the conversation - one that has a sorry history of receiving such treatment in Hollyw...

    Cannes: Suicide and Sexual Abuse Abound In Claire Denis' Frustratingly Muddled 'Bastards'

    Claire Denis' films are typically intimate dramas weighted with emotion, which makes it particularly dispiriting that "The Bastards," her eleventh feature, contains those ingredients without sufficiently pulling them together. A muddled revenge drama about family ties and traumatic experiences, the ...
