Few and far between, but they do exist. Favorites?

I think Sally Potter is a fantastic filmmaker. If anyone hasn't seen Orlando which came out in 1992 I definetly reccomend it. She is definetly more experimental. One of her first student films, she set up two cameras and filmed this baby crawling on a sidewalk. The film is viewed on two projection screens, and you watch the baby crawl from one side of the screen and reappear on the other screen. It's cool shit.

Jane Campion is a great filmmaker. The Piano is a great film. She's doing a new movie with Meg Ryan, sexual in content of course. The Portrait of a Lady was disappointing though...

Can't wait to see what Mary Harron does next. I don't think she has gotten the recognition or press that she deserves. American Psycho was so well done.

Any others?

Julie Taymor. Frida was good, but Titus was amazing.

Also... Mary Harron, Kasi Lemmons, Sofia Coppola.

agreed with RK.

I have a fondness for Sofia Coppola myself. With the Virgin Suicides, she made a film in which she had a good beginning understanding on how to really approach a subject. I heard that the movie, before, had many men who were going to write and direct it but Sofia came along and focused more on the atmoshpere created by the suicides, instead of what the men were going to do, and that was focus on the act of the suicides itself.

Jill Sprecher directed Clockwatchers and Thirteen Conversations About One Thing. Lynne Ramsay's another that shows promise.

Mary Harron's new movie starts shooting this coming summer. It's a slight possibility that I'm getting an internship for it.

That was my brag post. I believe I'm entitled to at least one.

Anyway, Karyn Kusama, director of Girlfight, is pretty good.

Nancy Savoca, who directed Dogfight and Household Sains--both of which I love.

Bloody right.

And I saw Eve's Bayou with great eagerness... oh, for fuck's sake... it makes me cringe when women make such bilge.
