Mikhail Karadimov's rating of the film Female Directors

Not entirely sure what to make of this film. However, that might very well be its allure. I read in a recent interview with Zhang Yimou--that director of the Chinese prestige picture--that he has a problem with the latest batch of Chinese independent filmmakers. After watching this, I think his worries are unfounded. I haven't seen anything so playfully meta in a long while. I enjoyed the mental exercise.
