Since this month marked the 6th annual celebration of Noirvember I did watch several films that were not directed by women, however every film I watched for Noirvember either had a female screenwriter or was based on a novel/story by a woman. That way I was able to marry Noirvember with A Year With Women. I know what you’re thinking: What about Ida Lupino?! Have no fear! I joined the Flixwise podcast this month to talk Lupino’s films The Hitch-hiker and The Bigamist. I also watched several 2015 films directed by women (I wouldn’t neglect those!). I also got to see Desperately Seeking Susan on the big screen in 35mm and met director Susan Seidelman! As always, after the cut you will find a list of all the films I watched in November, as well as a few highlights.
Lucky Gagin: I’m gonna cut you in.
Poncho: Cut me in?
Lucky Gagin: Five grand.
Lucky Gagin: Five thousand bucks.
Poncho: You got that much money?
Lucky Gagin: I’m gonna get it.
Poncho: Yeah, lots of people gonna get lots of things, but they don’t.
