The 25 Best Films Directed By Women of the 21st Century, From ‘Lost in Translation’ to ‘Persepolis’

The 25 Best Films Directed By Women of the 21st Century, From ‘Lost in Translation’ to ‘Persepolis’
Female filmmakers are still an unfortunate rarity in Hollywood — USC Annenberg’s Media, Diversity & Social Change Initiative’s latest study about female directors in the industry recently delivered blunt findings like “the director’s chair is white and male” and “age restricts opportunities for female filmmakers” and even “one & done: opportunities for female directors are rare” — but that hasn’t stopped a compelling legion of creators to churn out excellent films for as long as the art form has existed.

The 21st century may be less than seventeen years old, but it’s already played home to a slew of instant classics, from established auteurs to rising indie stars and everything in between. Here are the 25 best.

Fortitude series 2 review

Michael Noble Feb 13, 2017

For those of you who've already binge-watched the entirety of Sky Atlantic's Fortitude series 2, here's our spoiler-filled review...

This review contains spoilers.

See related Trespass Against Us trailer, with Michael Fassbender Justin Kurzel interview: Macbeth, Breaking Bad, Snowtown

When Fortitude arrived on our screens in 2015, it did so floating on a sea of publicity. Millions were spent announcing the arrival of Sky’s newest pitch at offering original drama to sit alongside its impressive roster of Us imports. Polar bears appeared at tube stations and posters of its snowbound stars, among them such luminaries as Michael Gambon, Sofie Gråbøl, Christopher Ecclestone and Stanley Tucci, appeared in hoardings both online and in the real world. The campaign caught attention but remained abstract, leaving little clue as to what the show was actually about.

The marketers can be forgiven for this approach, as the show itself seemed uncertain.

‘Fortitude 2×04′ Review

Stars: Sofie Gråbøl, Richer Dormer, Dennis Quaid, Michelle Fairley, Robert Sheehan, Edvin Endre, Parminder Nagra | Created by Simon Donald

Just when you thought Fortitude couldn’t get any stranger, episode 4 of series two takes things to new levels. An eyeless man stalking the town, a new Shaman in town and gravedigging all adding up to bring all the mysteries together, with a dose of Russian conspiracy just to add to the drama.

After the events of last episode, we are treated to an explanation as to what has been going on with the wild animals, at least the reindeer which was discovered being experimented on. Seemingly used to create a drug (in the form of the so-called reindeer juice) this discovery also reveals the man, who will probably be the prime suspect, though we still don’t know who he is just yet. What also is discovered is more details

‘Fortitude 2×03′ Review

Stars: Sofie Gråbøl, Richer Dormer, Dennis Quaid, Michelle Fairley, Robert Sheehan, Edvin Endre, Parminder Nagra | Created by Simon Donald

We’re now three episodes in to Fortitude‘s second series and there is one thing we can be sure of: any semblance of normality has now been lost… With characters that were seemingly at death’s door now waking up, and people being decapitated, it seems that answers to what is going on may be being revealed.

The problem with this is though, there may be clues but no definite answer. A hint does seem to be in the tests Dr Sarinda Khatri (Paraminder Nagra) is doing on a comatose patient that don’t seem to be ethical. Especially when her prognosis of the patient being beyond waking up doesn’t seem to be the truth. Hildur Odegard (Sofie Gråbøl) now seemingly ousted from her job as governor also takes

‘Fortitude 2×02′ Review

Stars: Sofie Gråbøl, Richer Dormer, Dennis Quaid, Michelle Fairley, Robert Sheehan, Edvin Endre, Parminder Nagra | Created by Simon Donald

In the first episode of Fortitude‘s second series we were given the groundwork for what we can expect in this latest chapter of the story of the “safest place on Earth.” Hardly safe though, we seem to have a story of cannibals and demons, and with a missing head still somewhere in the town, what other secrets will episode two reveal?

One of the most interesting things we find in this episode is that Dr. Sarinda Khatri (Parminder Nagra) is still experimenting with one of the wasps which caused so many problems in the first season. Now that the sheriff is back though, the investigations as to who the headless man is are making some progress. With Michael Lennox (Dennis Quaid) trying to salvage his boat and his livelihood, it

‘Fortitude 2×01′ Review

Stars: Sofie Gråbøl, Richer Dormer, Dennis Quaid, Michelle Fairley, Robert Sheehan, Edvin Endre, Parminder Nagra | Created by Simon Donald

Fortitude first caught my attention when it was advertised on television, with the town’s governor making the statement that it was the safest town on Earth. This of course wasn’t true, as murder and chaos soon take hold. Now as we move to the second season of Fortitude, and its first episode, we return to the town and a fresh murder not surprisingly introduces us to the next chapter…

After the events of Fortitude: Season 1, the people of Fortitude are still dealing with the fallout, including Governor Hildur Odegard (Sofie Gråbøl). When a decapitated body is discovered in the snow, it appears the town once again has a murderer at large. With strange things going on including mutilation of dogs and tension with the fishing community, everything is

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Episode 11 Review: Wake Up

  • TVfanatic
One generally assumes that androids would be less feeling than their human counterparts, and less susceptible to their emotions (and that's if they're advanced enough to have any emotions at all). After all, they're almost physically indestructible; why wouldn't they be emotionally indestructible too? 

Well, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is here to throw an ironic wrench into proceedings. On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Episode 11, we were treated to an hour of amazing acting by Ming-Na Wen, who is currently pulling double duty as both the captive Agent May and her android counterpart, who I refer to as Lmd May.

Both versions of May draw from the same host of human memories, but one contains programming from Radcliffe that makes her impulses...different. Lmd May can't fight back or resist in the same indefatigable way that the real May does; Radcliffe has programmed her so that she finds herself unable to attack
