Her name is WESTMULLER people.
Since I brought her up, I’ll name some of my favorites:
Summer Night, with Greek Profile, Almond Eyes and Scent of Basil (1986)Love and Anarchy (1973)Swept Away… by an Unusual Destiny in the Blue Sea of August (1974)The Seduction of Mimi (1972)Violent City (1970)Let’s Talk About Men (1965)
I really like her.
THE PORTRAIT OF A LADY – JANE CAMPION -
um…I think it’s WERTMULLER people.
Lost In Translation (One of my all time favourites, Sofia Coppola)
Strange Days (Bigelow)
Boys Don’t Cry (Pierce)
Actually it’s Wertmüller with an umlaut u ;-)
Yes, I never could figure out how to make an umlaut.
Apparently you must first break a few eggs.
I really liked Bye Bye Blues and Loyalties, directed by Anne Wheeler.
Agnes Varda. I met her recently at Harvard discussing her film. She may give up film to concentrate on her art works.
She has certainly earned the right to rest on her laurels.
Actually one of my favorite films by a female director is Ripley’s Game, she’s a nice italian director that generally makes films that are impenetrable like David Lynch movies. But Ripley’s Game is probably one of her greatest looking films, terrific set designs and just nicely made all over. Nice performance from John Malkovich!!!

Right now – Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Hurt Locker”
I some how forgot to mention the name of the director of Ripley’s Game Liliana Cavani
Jane Campion’s “The Piano” and “An Angel at My Table” are masterpieces, as is Chantal Akerman’s “Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles.” Catherine Breillat is another master, especially with “Fat Girl,” though I actually dislike more of her films than I flat-out love.
I love Sally Potter’s films (yes, even “The Man Who Cried”), and while her best is probably “Orlando,” I have a real soft spot for “Yes.”
I loved Isabel Coixet’s “Elegy.”
I thoroughly enjoyed Julie Taymor’s “Titus” (it’s just so gorgeously over-the-top) and “Frida.”
Sofia Coppola’s “Lost in Translation” was pretty good.
Shara – Naomi KawaseTake Care of My Cat – Jae-eun Jeong

kelly reichardt , especially with old joy she seems to be absorbing life rather than filming, and So Yong Kim with treeless mountains for the same reasons.
So Yong Kim with treeless mountain definitely
