American Honey (2016) Much like Mia, the young protagonist in Fish Tank, Andrea Arnold finds peace in dancing. “Apparently, there was a Cambridge professor who did a study on happiness—it took him five years—and he came back and said dancing made people happy. I could have told him that in ten seconds! I’ve always loved dancing, but my New Year’s resolution is to dance every day. I don’t dance as much as I used to and I miss it, and I was thinking, why do you have...

Birth of a Nation The epic rise and fall of actor and filmmaker Nate Parker is currently still in the stages of grief and disbelief. How can it be that someone equipped with such brilliance, and with the evidence of his entrance into the esteemed walls of Hollywood’s elite — based on a dream come true — could also be aligned with a tragic mishap that cost only one life? Secrets and lies.Earlier this year, the buzzword was diversity. #OscarSoWhite gleamed in the landscape with the renderings...

  With the new erotic psychological thriller The Handmaiden, director Park Chan-Wook proves that filmmakers can take book adaptations in any direction they choose. He takes Sarah Waters’ novel Fingersmith and moves the setting from Victorian England to 1930s Korea under Japanese colonial rule — and it completely works.  To reveal too much of the ever-twisting plot would spoil the film, but it centers around three characters: Sook-hee (Kim Tae-ri), a poor Korean pickpocket; Lady Hideko (Kim Min-hee), a young Japanese heiress; and “Count Fujiwara” (Ha Jung-Woo),...

Tim Curry in the Rocky Horror Picture Show As FOX prepares to release their updated made-for-tv version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, I can’t help but remember by own pilgrimages to the midnight move as a teenager in the early ‘90s. Armed with some of the necessary audience participation props — water pistols, rice, and toast — my group of friends entered the time warp (hey, my folks let me break curfew for the movie!) while letting loose singing, shouting and throwing things for 100 fabulous...

Certain Women has cinematically achieved something that is typically a difficult task. The film tells the stories of four women in three tales, stories that appear to be barely woven together yet they are, and each character brings the rawness of what it’s like to be a woman in a difficult situation. Like the subtle feminist theme, these struggles aren’t blatantly obvious ones: No one has a grave illness, and there are no soap-opera level events that are barely believable. This film does not distract...

Black Sails has never been the type of show that people gather around the water cooler in the same way they do for Game of Thrones or How to Get Away With Murder, but that has not stopped the show from delivering consistently great content. It also has some amazing female characters in a genre that can sometimes forget how nuanced women can be. Eleanor One of the most controversial characters on the show is Eleanor Guthrie, portrayed by Hannah New. From the very beginning, Eleanor has...

Scream Round up your besties for a horror movie marathon featuring feminist-friendly flicks! Halloween is right around the corner, which means horror-movie season is here. But every girl worth her gore knows what a feminist nightmare scary movies can be. Drew Barrymore said it best in Scream: “What’s the point? They’re all the same—some stupid killer stalking some big-breasted girl who can’t act who is always running up the stairs when she should be running out the front door. It’s insulting.” But lady-friendly horror flicks do exist....
