Perhaps someone picks up what you're putting down, brother. But it ain't me. You're kind of making me sick.
I'm like, whatever, it's fucking Houlihan

if you put "confronting" and "good" in the same basket, then "Baise Moi".

Mai Zetterling va-va-voom.
Loving Couples - Sort of a feminist take on Bergman, Sven Nykvist DP.

Mia Hansen-Løve ditto
Father of My Children - Good French stuff, less impressed with her more recent picture (still good), but this was terrific.

Thin Ice was funny, reminded me of Fargo. It has 3 guys I'll see in anything--Greg Kinnear, Alan Arkin, and Billy Crudup.

I was always under the impression he'd be in anything, so, good choice.

There are plenty of great women directors in the world. Just looking through my dvds, I could skip all of the most obvious names and still come up with a healthy list of top tier women filmmakers:

Claudia Llosa- Madeinusa, The Milk of Sorrow
Kira Muratova- Two in One, The Asthenic Syndrome, Melody for a Street Organ
Ann Hui- Boat People, Romance of Book and Sword, July Rhapsody
Margarethe von Trotta- Sisters, or the Balance of Happiness, Marianne and Juliane
Yasmin Ahmad- Mukhsin, Sepet
Lucrecia Martel- La Cienaga, The Headless Woman
Samira Makhmalbaf- Blackboards, Two-Legged Horse
Hana Makhmalbaf- Buddha Collapsed out of Shame
Jeong Jae-eun- Take Care of My Cat, The Aggressives
Kim Longinotto- Pink Saris, Gaea Girls, Shinjuku Boys
Maren Ade- Everyone Else
Mania Akbari- 20 Fingers, One Two One
Shirley Clarke- Portrait of Jason, Ornette: Made In America
Forough Farrokhzad- The House is Black
Liu Jiayin- Oxhide, Oxhide II
Miwa Nishikawa- Sway (Yureru), Dear Doctor, Dreams for Sale
Mercedes Alvarez- The Sky Turns, Marcado de Futuros

This fairly obscure recent effort (A Little Death by one Gina Telaroli) looks like it might be a good movie. It premiered at a small festival in Western Massachusetts the same year one of my movies played there too but I couldn't afford to fly or take a train up there so I missed it. Since then I haven't noticed anyone say anything about it, which leeds me to believe it could be something special - an increasing number of good movies get lost in the festival shuffle and if there's no money or hype behind them they're hardly a blip on most people's radars... even among "cinephiles."

Saw this today, trailer for Herb & Dorothy 50x50, Megumi Sasaki's new follow-up to her excellent documentary Herb & Dorothy.

Man, I love the ending of that original movie, wherein Dorothy is finally buying her first proper computer, even though she and her husband had millions of dollars worth of contemporary art sitting in their apartment for years.

Just saw this thread while going down the EA rabbit hole and think it's pretty good; might be a good idea to keep it going.

A few films off the top of my head and stuff that i've seen recently that I think are great:
Desert Hearts by Donna Deitch
Wild Berries/Sway/The Long Excuse by Miwa Nishikawa
Les Rendez-vous d'Anna by Chantal Akerman
Toni Erdmann by Maren Ade
