A Year With Women: October 2015 in Films

I had intended to spend most of October watching horror films by women (and I did watch quite a few; special shout out to Heavy Midnites for their Ladies of the 80s: A Decade of Horror, where they showed 8 horror films over 3 days all directed by women), but I found myself watching almost everything TCM showed during their Trailblazing Women in Film series. They showed over 50 films from 47 different directors over the course of the month. I saw 25 new-to-me films, plus I re-watched another 11 films that are favorites of mine. If you missed my live-tweet of Valley Girl, you missed a tripendicular good time! As always, the full list of what I watched can be found after the cut, as well as a few highlights.
