Here is a scary statistic: Only 5% of studio films, released in the past five years, have had a female director. AHHH! So, what is a Bustie to do? Well, no worries, an amazing list of 50 Must-See Horror Films Directed By Women has been created by Alison Nastasi for Flavorwire for all you feminists out there trying to get your fright on this Halloween season! The list is compiled of some older films like The Hitch-Hiker, directed by Ida Lupino in 1953: As well as ... Read More
Tim Burton, the king of spooky cool and curator of '90s kids’ favorite movies from childhood, is coming out with a new lady-centered movie, Big Eyes.  The film is a true story about Margaret Keane, an artist from the 1950s played by Amy Adams, who specialized in painting images of children with freakishly huge eyes. But her husband Walter, played by the charming Christoph Waltz, is not such a charming character. In fact, he’s kind of a ... Read More
You may remember how a week or so ago we were nerding out all over the place about the beautiful reality of getting to spend 10 consecutive days at NY's Film Society watching every little thing that filth king John Waters has made to date. Well, it's all over now, and while we didn't exactly plant butts in seats for all 10 days (turns out 65th street is REALLY far from Brooklyn) we did see, and experience, some pretty choice events. Out of the entire list of ... Read More
What better way to close out a hot, sticky summer spent roaming the feces-littered streets of NYC than with hours and hours of "filth" from the master himself, John Waters?The Film Society of Lincoln Center will be hosting a retrospective of his films that's being called, "50 Years of John Waters: How Much Can You Take?"  I for one am so happy I could shit. The retrospective runs from September 5th-14th and kicks off with an opening night showing of Female ... Read More
  There’s nothing I love more than a solid night in and a good movie. As much as I enjoy a classic, though, a lot of them come from a time when “Bechdelling it” wasn’t a thing. Movies were (and in many unfortunate cases, still are) made to make money, not to make sure women get represented fairly in the entertainment industry. Or in any industry. Or in life. But I digress.  Wouldn’t it be so good if our favorite movies ... Read More
What’s more kickass than a female superhero? A queer female superhero. The Soska Sisters (twin sisters who are known for making super rad female-focused horror films like American Mary) are set to direct the movie that will bring Jimmy Palmiotti and Joe Quesada’s Painkiller Jane to life. Painkiller Jane is a comic from the '90s that focuses on a bisexual cop-turned-superhero with special healing and regenerative powers. She’s a woman, ... Read More
In this article on Mic, Derrick Clifton breaks down 4 ways that Robin Williams challenged perspectives on gender conformity and women’s rights. In films like Mrs. Doubtfire and The Birdcage, Robin Williams never acted like the joke of his performance was his feminine dress or mannerisms. He mocked his circumstances, not people. The dresses, the heels, and the makeup of Mrs. Doubtfire all played necessary roles in the wonderful, absurd process of making ... Read More
  Today’s been a mishmash of goods and bads, to say the least. Bads: I got my wisdom teeth out and I can’t eat solid food for a few days. Goods: I finally have a medical excuse to sleep, read, drink smoothies, sleep and watch Netflix all day. Very bads: It stings like a beeyotch, and being bedridden during summer vacation is probably the worst fate a free-spirited gal like myself can endure, next to lice during summer vacation (a fate I have also ...

In case you’ve never heard of it, Into the Woods is basically the best musical ever.  Literally.  It is a work of genius born from the genius of the ever-magnificent Stephen Sondheim and bestowed upon our world as a heavenly gift.  Just to be clear, I’ve never actually seen it performed live on Broadway. I have, however, seen a film of its original, 1987 Broadway run (which featured total legend, Bernadette Peters as the witch).  ... Read More

Movie Review: Love Child

BY Emma Tilden in TV

“Sarang” is the Korean word for “love.”  It is also the name of the 3-month-old baby who died from malnutrition in 2010 while her parents were out on a 10 hour online gaming binge.  The couple, a Mr. and Ms. Kim, spent 6-12 hours every day playing the online game Prius which, ironically, involves raising a virtual child named Anima.  Unfortunately, Anima took precedent over Sarang, their real-world baby.  “The ...
