Female Filmmaker Friday Podcast: Episode 1 – Jane Campion


I’m very excited to be bringing Female Filmmaker Friday back! This time, however, it’s back in the form of a podcast. To launch my very first podcast I decided I must start with one of my favorite film directors: Jane Campion! I really love her work and it was so much fun to talk about her filmography with two of my favorite film lovers: Justine Smith and Kristen Sales! I hope you enjoying listening to this conversation as much as I did having it!

Check back in two weeks when Lady P from Flixwise and I discuss the work of Ida Lupino!


A Year With Women: April 2015 in Films

I didn’t watch very many films in April because about halfway through the month my beloved cat Mr. Rochester’s chronic kidney disease flared up and he was hospitalized. He passed away on April 21st, 2015 – three weeks after his 7th birthday. If you watch my YouTube videos, you can get a pretty good picture of how important he was to my life. He was my soulmate and he’ll be greatly missed. So I wasn’t really up to watching movies and critiquing them. I did, however, watch all of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Orange is the New Black, as well as getting all caught up on Jane The Virgin and Outlander. All great shows, all worth your time. That said, the movies I did watch in April were great, and, as always, there is a full list after the cut, as well as a few favorites.

June: That one’s like a. . .like a. . .
Janet: It’s phallic. Everything’s phallic.
June: What’s phallic?
Janet: It’s from phallus. The Latin for penis.
