To help people with their 52 Films By Women challenge this year I thought I’d put together a list of some of my favorite films directed by women that are easily accessible on Netflix and Amazon Prime. Keep in mind that this is in no way all of the films directed by women available on these services, but rather a selection of films I have seen and enjoy. There are also many more films available to rent on Amazon Video as well. Think of this as a jumping off point! Also if you have not taken the 52 Films By Women pledge yet you can do so here.
March was an interesting month. I didn’t see very many films on the big screen directed by women, but I did see quite a few films on the big screen! That is, because of the TCM Classic Film Festival, I took a bit of a moratorium from A Year With Women. I go to TCMFF every year and I just couldn’t skip it. That said, this month’s favorites will include a least one film not written or directed by a woman. I also managed to watch quite a few films that I didn’t really care for (one that I loved so much it’s ridiculous!) As always, a full list of the films I watched in March can be found after the cut.
