As Good As Any Man...no, BetterShow
1. Talaash (Reema Kagti, 2012)
2. Siesta (Mary Lambert, 1987) (re-watch)
3. Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn (Cathy Yan, 2020) (cinema)

c) Episode 3 "The End is the Beginning" (Hanelle M. Culpepper, 2020)

6. Portrait de la jeune fille en feu / Portrait of a Lady on Fire (Céline Sciamma, 2019) (cinema)
7. Naissance des pieuvres / Water Lilies (Céline Sciamma, 2007)
8. Talvar / Guilty (Meghna Gulzar, 2015)

Apparently based on a true case from 2008, this police procedural involving a double murder is a damning portrait of India's criminal justice system, from top to bottom. A young woman is murdered in her room in the family's apartment, and shortly afterwards the man who is an initial suspect, their servant, is discovered dead by the same means (blow to the head and then throat cut) on the roof of the same building, outside his own apartment. The initial "investigation" by the local police is obviously totally incompetent, and the cop at the head of it is presented as full of his own hypocritical conservative views which lead him to believe that it was, in fact, an honor killing by the parents themselves over something between the servant and daughter; when this investigation is judged to be poorly run (and is getting too much bad press in the media), the CID - I presume India's equivalent of the FBI - steps in, with an investigation led by a celebrated detective, Ashwin Kumar (Irrfan Khan, really excellent here) who is undergoing his own crisis in his marriage and is under continuous strain. And this isn't enough as new information - and new political/social concerns - continue to pile up until a messy, unfortunate and deeply dissatisfying (in terms of the narrative, not the film itself) conclusion. This is one of the best recent police procedurals I've seen, and with it's very limited (and largely appropriate) use of songs I think it would be an ideal film from the Bollywood-phobic who want to see what Indian film can do when it plays by more western rules - though as some reviews have pointed out, many of the actions of the cops on all levels do seem a bit strange given the overt moralizing that we see - which isn't present in such an overt way in western justice systems anymore.

9. The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes - Episode 2 - "The Dying Detective" (Sarah Hellings, 1994)
10. The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes - Episode 4 - "The Red Circle" (Sarah Hellings, 1994)

I've been slowly - very slowly - going through the entire Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes series for years, and I'm finally coming to the end. This last season of 6 episodes shows Brett still as angry, impulsive-alternating-with-detached, and agile of mind as ever, but the actor was in poor health, had gained a lot of weight, and was not able to do many of the more physical actions that were once part of the regular Holmes regimen in this series. Still these last episodes aren't much of a comedown from the earlier seasons and the series as a whole will go down for me as one of the most consistently excellent I've seen, with great attention to period detail and typically excellent use of undoubtedly small British TV resources.

"The Dying Detective" features the case of a young man whose sudden death prompts an investigation by Holmes, who finds out that the man's estate will all go to his cousin, an amateur specialist in tropical diseases - including the one that killed the man. The fact that Brett was practically on his deathbed when portraying a Holmes who is apparently suffering from this tropical fever himself is remarkable, but it's probably Jonathan Hyde's performance as the villainous Culverton Smith that makes this most memorable.

"The Red Circle" is one of many episodes featuring a sinister, secret crime organization - in this case the eponymous Red Circle, an Italian group that has set it's sights on destroying a young couple, all while Holmes is being sought for aid concerning a mysterious border who is scaring the landlords with his (non) presence. A good episode but this one, like quite a few others in the series, does suffer a bit in not being able to get all the details, or in rushing through them too quickly. Still it all comes together nicely in a suspenseful and violent conclusion.

11. Blue Steel (Kathryn Bigelow, 1990) (re-watch)

Like Siesta above, this was a film I remembered disliking - but really barely remembered. Jamie Lee Curtis is Megan Turner, a rookie cop who on her very first day on the job (the first of many, many cliches to come) shoots a perp dead in a supermarket. But somehow when she and the other cops who rush to the scene start cleaning things up, they can't find the gun she was sure the robber was packing. And that brings us to Ron Silver as Eugene Hunt a Wall Street trader who was in the market and - this ain't spoiling anything, it's all in the first scene - grabbed the gun for reasons of his own. Soon people start turning up dead of lead poisoning, and the shell casings have "Megan Turner" carved into them. This immediately brings up one of an ENORMOUS number of plot holes - how did this guy know Turner's name, since he fled the crime scene right away (he wasn't a witness called by the cops). How is it that in a city of 7 million there are only two people with such a common name? And every scene as we go forward seems to have similar idiot-plot problems. And our bad guy is just one of those "I like to kill" people - he's got his own weird little spiritual rationale, but it does come down to him just being a cardboard Evil Monster in the end. So on the level of plot this is every bit as bad as I remembered it.

HOWEVER there is a case that could be made for this being in fact a very deliberate feminist deconstruction of the typical cop-perp crime/action flick. Turner is put down at every point by just about everybody except her best friend (Elizabeth Peña, and you know that since the best friend is the only supportive person, something bad's going to happen), and the way in which Mr. Wall Street comes onto her, stalks her etc is very much a male domination thing - and this is all I think buoyed by the rather amazing last 10 minutes or so in which
SpoilerShow
a hospitalized, traumatized Turner coldcocks another cop, takes his clothes and gun, leaves the hospital and just goes out into the streets to essentially wait until Hunt (and this name could not be coincidental) inevitably somehow finds her, so that she can wreak vengeance on him though he's already taken several bullets and been hit by a car by this point.
There are also, interestingly, some fairly obvious lifts from the score to The Terminator, a film made by Ms. Bigelow's then-husband James Cameron a few years before and a few visual nods (the blue steel of the gun in the opening credits - the blue-on-black lettering in the Cameron film). In some ways then this is perhaps her human-scale reply to that film and that film's unstoppable bad guy.

All in all it still doesn't add up to a very good film IMO, but I think it's a more interesting work than it gets credit for, and with a little - just a little - more subtlety in the screenplay it might have been something special.

17. She, the Ultimate Weapon: Another Love Song (Mitsuko Kase, 2005)
I wanted to work in at least one anime into this challenge because women directors in the anime industry are even more disproportionately marginalized and rare than in many other markets. Since it looks like TV isn't allowed this time, it was a little harder to find one, but I did come across this side story of the related TV series I had already seen. It's director, Mitsuko Kase, has one of the longest careers of any female director of anime, having been in the industry since the '70s. Fun fact: She was the first woman to direct a robot anime, a style even more dominated by men than many others.

Filmed through a 21st century lens, the treatment here gives a lot of focus to the positive relationship between Mary and her gay, cross-dressing personal secretary who she openly tells to "be whoever you wish". Mary also elucidates some pretty modern thoughts on marriage - "not if I'm owned". The film is dull though when focused on the animosity between the queens, advice from their closest associates and so on. Good makeup though.

While Donald Sutherland's utter oblivion to corrupt apartheid practices is never once credible here for an educated man, the premise offers an acute launching pad into political tensions in 70s and 80s South Africa. His interactions with his wife, who dislikes apartheid but is scared about change, are dynamic too. Marlon Brando also absolutely steals every scene he is in as a cynical but wisecracking lawyer who thinks it is futile but agrees to help.

Clocking in at over two hours, this runs a little long with a protracted ending and several stops as the couple dance, fornicate and ride horses, all of which subtracts from the urgency of their flight from the law. Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith are both simply stellar in the lead roles though, progressing very dynamically over the course of the movie. The film is very funny at times too while offering an interesting take on racial profiling.

While her more vulgar stand-up jokes are tiresome, Jenny Slate makes for a very appealing protagonist here with her natural quick wit and a deeply sarcastic sense of humour. The basic premise has definite potential too, yet the film is uneven in both dramatic and romantic mode, with the love affair taking off a little too quickly and easily, and with Slate not having to contend with any uncertainty at all as to wanting to go ahead with an abortion.

Image

An action comedy that tries to be a romcom at the same time. The attempted genre blending is curious, but it sort of works against the story with the action drive of the narrative cut short on the many occasions in which the protagonist runs into her ex and yet has trouble nabbing him. While her on / off voiceover narration adds nothing to the tale, Katherine Heigl at least gives it her all in the lead role and an ever-so-kooky Debbie Reynolds is fun.

This motorcycle road movie bears some similarities to Easy Rider but Joseph Minion's Motorama is probably a more accurate template, though the film actually awkwardly sits halfway between being something very serious and outright demented. While the likes of John Cusack offer energetic turns, the film is never kooky enough to exist in its own universe a la Motorama, Interstate 60 or Fear & Loathing, while the drama leaves a bit to be desired.

While this comedy film boasts the novelty of a young Shia LaBeouf hacking into NASA in the early days of the internet, this is far less engaging than it might sound. All of the child actors are decent, but most of the adults are incredibly stilted and the film has several clumsy action sequences, set to silly sound effects, and a bizarre Seinfeldish music score. Perhaps most disappointingly, there are barely any animals and the monkey has nothing to do.

05. S'en fout la mort, by Claire Denis (1990) 6,5/10

A good, original subject, but the character was really hard to grasp...

06. Radioactive, by Marjane Satrapi (2020) 7/10

A good, solid, biopic of Marie Curie. A bit too tame for Satrapi, but I would understand an intent to speak to a wider audience this time.

07. Bird Box, by Susanne Bier (2018) 6/10

Not very original, but well executed, so you don't get bored...

Oh, I didn't realize they counted since the OP didn't mention them.

24-27. Pretear E1-12 (Kiyoko Sayama, 2001)
Since TV is allowed, I'll add this one as well. It's an anime with a woman as the series director. To give you an idea of what women face in this industry, here's a quote from Yoshiaki Nishimura, one of the head producers at Studio Ghibli, one of the most beloved and successful animation studios of all time in Japan when asked if Studio Ghibli would ever hire a female director:
"It depends on what kind of a film it would be. Unlike live action, with animation we have to simplify the real world. Women tend to be more realistic and manage day-to-day lives very well. Men on the other hand tend to be more idealistic – and fantasy films need that idealistic approach. I don’t think it’s a coincidence men are picked.”
The even more absurd thing about this is that women are actually quite prevalent in the anime industry as artists, animators and writers,just not as directors. Additionally some of the most popular manga that anime are based on were created by women like Rumiko Takahashi and CLAMP, an all-female manga collective.
