    The Depressing Reality of Women Directed Films in 2012

    I really wish I wasn't writing this but over the last couple of days it has become clear to me that 2012 could be another depressing year for women directed films.  I started feeling sad last week when I was leafing through page after page of the Rentrak list of films with release dates in ...

    Darren Aronofsky & Angelina Jolie Out & Susanne Bier, Bradley Cooper & Jennifer Lawrence Are In For ‘Serena’

    Sometimes, the stars don't align. It's as simple as that when projects don't come together and roll in front of cameras, and while in early 2010 Darren Aronofsky and Angelina Jolie were signed to direct and star in the period drama "Serena," it simply didn't come together. ...

    Agnieszka Holland is the Only Remaining Female Director with a Shot at the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar

    We all know that only one woman -- Kathryn Bigelow (and it has been a long time since we uttered her name) -- has won the best director honors. But there have been other women acknowledged for their films in the best foreign language category. Marleen Gorris won for Antonia's Line. Caroline L...

    In My Humble Opinion- The Best Female Directed Films of 2011

    It goes without saying that women made all kinds of films this year.  But the reality is that most made indie films.  Only a couple made studio films.  And the numbers of women directing films is still abysmally low.

    'Melancholia' Wins Best Film At European Film Awards; Ties 'The King's Speech' For Most Awards

    While it has pretty much zero influence on the awards season stateside, the European Film Awards, which are essentially the Euro version of the Oscars, presented their winners tonight and it looks like Lars Von Trier's brief moment as a pariah is over.

    Interview: Susanne Bier Bemoans Violent Society And Modern Parenting For 'In A Better World'

    In one unattainable and colossally perfect universe, "Dogtooth" won the best Foreign Oscar statue. Our current universe is admittedly less deranged than that, with the Academy generally awarding whichever non-U.S. movie hits all the cliché buttons and shies away from originality. Thankfully, the 2010 winner "In A Better World" breaks their usual reductive routine. Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier's (the Academy Award nominated "After the Wedding," "Things We Lost In The Fire") latest focuses on a friendship between two troubled boys and is told in a distant, completely unnerving way. Sure, it doesn't feature a woman being repeatedly beaten with ...

    Review: Oscar Winner 'In A Better World' Morally Complex, Well Made, But Not Quite Transformative

    When you see Susanne Bier’s “In a Better World” and people ask you if you had a good time at the movies, the answer will most certainly be “no.” Like Bier’s other work (notably “Brothers,” “Open Hearts,” “Things We Lost in the Fire” and “After the Wedding”), this 2010 Danish Oscar winner for Best Foreign Film is a serious, emotional drama about how tragedy simultaneously unites and divides us. There’s little enjoyment or entertainment to be had--and there isn’t meant to be--but Bier has crafted another solid film, and it’s easy to see why “In a Better World” won the votes of the mind-numbingly traditional Academy Award voters, particularly ag...
