Like seeing the films of Nair, Bier and Martel showing up, though they should be higher.
One thing some women directors do really well is get inside the emotional content of their characters and issues.
We may be both championing recent cinema, but still our tastes are only mildly overlapping. I find Bier absolutely horrible, ugly and sentimental cinema.
We seem to overlap most on the more arthouse Asian cinema, and I find most of your more mainstream recommendations pretty much define what I would call "horrible, ugly, sentimental" cinema.
Ok, maybe I would use different adjectives to describe them, like mundane, redundant, unimaginative, uninspiring, and generally lacking in cinematic creativity, but hey, we all seem to have somewhat different tastes, here.
As for Bier, while she is clearly drawn to heavy psychological relationship dramas, I think her films not only delve deep inside the issues weighing on her characters, but the performances of her actors are outstanding.
