Post Female American Cinema

Oh siggggghhhh... No female protoganists because there's no female directors! No, because there's no audience! No silly, because there's no material!!

Yeah. How about that mandate from Warner Brothers?

Rented "Girl 27." Really brave examination of insitutionalized rape in the studio system, and the general attitude towards girls and sexuality and their disposibility to Hollywood businessmen. Not that anything's really changed here...The first half of the movie is really good and the last half is pretty bad, so I guess it's a draw unless you turn it off 45 minutes into it. Yikes. But fantastic subject matter, even though they ran out of material.
