She'll probably ruin the Little Mermaid like she ruined the Godfather 3.

She's a better director than an actor.

/I know it's cool to hate on "Lost in Translation" but the people who biatch about that movie either don't understand or don't appreciate a character study.

I thought he was quite good in The Life Aquatic.  And his sort of extended cameo in Zombieland was pretty amusing.

Oops, discounting Zombieland. That was pretty okay.

I also find that when other people don't like a movie that I like, it is because they are ignorant philistines.

(Bloodsport, for example.)

/and yes, it would after all be virtually impossible for her to be a worse director than actor

I think this is probably some sort of innate cultural bias in how we bring up women and men to interact with people. TV is a more collaborative enterprise because of the duration of the shooting and the shifting story lines, and women tend to be more comfortable working collaboratively. Movies on the other hand are deadline driven and have a definitive goal in end and men tend to be more comfortable working towards a direct result.

I wouldn't say these are directly related to chromosomes, but more likely the behaviour if it exists at that level is amplified by how we socialize boys and girls as they are growing up.

That's interesting. Thinking about it, it may well be even deeper than just cultural, going all the way to inborn base gender differences. Genetic level.

Consider every major film studio is run by men, I wonder why that is.

Rob Reiner - North.
The Coen Brothers - The Ladykillers
Francis Ford Coppola - Jack
Cameron Crowe - Vanilla Sky AND Elizabethtown.

You going to tell me these guys aren't good directors? Every director has a terrible movie on their resume (save, maybe Kurosawa or Bergman whose worst films are just mediocre).

Bigelow and Denis are two of the greatest directors working today IMO.

As for Coppola: I loved Lost in Translation, hated Somewhere, and everything else she's done is pretty "meh" as far as I'm concerned. After her last few films she's got some work to do to win me back.

Winter's Bone, City of God, Monster ...there are obviously far fewer female directors getting opportunities to direct major movies, but I don't think their batting average is any worse.

Monkeyfark Ridiculous: Winter's Bone, City of God, Monster ...there are obviously far fewer female directors getting opportunities to direct major movies, but I don't think their batting average is any worse.


But what "opportunities" do you need? There's a lot of men out there picking up a DV camera and just making low budget movies that opens the door to them. Any woman could have done a load of drug tests like Robert Rodriguez did and made a movie. Any woman can make a film like Primer or The Brothers McMullen. The last one cost $23K, which was basically the cost of film stock, so you could do that today for $2K.

And I'm not seeing many women out there breaking into film making by doing that. And what's the best way to see if someone can do the job? By seeing them do the job.

I liked  Marie Antoinette a lot. Seemed to me that the people who hated it the most were expecting some kind of historical accuracy, which was...really not the point. Haven't gotten around to her last two yet, though.

Coming from Coppola, an adaptation of the fairy tale with the original ending could be pretty good stuff.
