Literally Just 23 Mindblowing Movies That Were Directed By Women

Revue du web

We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about their favourite movies directed by women. Here are some of their recommendations…

1. Waitress (2007), dir. Adrienne Shelly

Waitress (2007), dir. Adrienne Shelly
Fox Searchlight Pictures

“[Shelly] was tragically murdered just after submitting the film to Sundance and never got to know how successful and well-received it would become. It’s a wonderful movie with themes of motherhood, sisterhood, growth, and self-reliance as a woman. Watching it now, it’s difficult not to think of the wasted potential due to senseless violence, but I also like to think of it as the gift she left for everyone and how lucky we all are to be able to see it.” – Liana Rudin, Facebook

2. Boys Don’t Cry (1999), dir. Kimberly Peirce

Boys Don't Cry (1999), dir. Kimberly Peirce
Fox Searchlight Pictures

“One of the greatest, most gut-wrenching, powerful, romantic, provocative, best acted dramas I’ve ever seen in my life. Hilary Swank and Chloe Sevigny are phenomenal. Although it’s hard to watch at times, it perfectly captures the sheer horror of hate crimes in America.” – Matt Bussy, Facebook

3. Water (2005), dir. Deepa Mehta

Water (2005), dir. Deepa Mehta
Fox Searchlight Pictures

“It’s such a moving Indian language film about the treatment of South Asian widows during the Ghandi era.” – Jack Boole, Facebook

4. Point Break (1991), dir. Kathryn Bigelow

Point Break (1991), dir. Kathryn Bigelow
20th Century Fox

“It shows that women can direct anything – including ridiculous action movies where Keanu Reeves is a cop going undercover as a surfer to entrap Patrick Swayze.” – kaitiem2

5. Selma (2014), dir. Ava DuVernay

Selma (2014), dir. Ava DuVernay
Paramount Pictures

“That movie is so powerful and delivers a great message in these dark times.” – ToriMast

6. The Prince of Tides (1991), dir. Barbra Streisand

The Prince of Tides (1991), dir. Barbra Streisand
Columbia Pictures

“It’s not really a movie you can watch over and over again, but it provides a good insight into how childhood abuse affects mental health even into adulthood.” – Jack Boole, Facebook

7. Winter’s Bone (2010), dir. Debra Granik

Winter's Bone (2010), dir. Debra Granik
Roadside Attractions

“I will never grow tired of it. It is a phenomenal work of art. Even though the families are mainly patriarchal, the women are the ones who drive this movie. Jennifer Lawrence’s portrayal of Ree Dolly is her finest performance. The film is raw and captivating, much like the book it was adapted from. It is truly an underrated classic.” – Ann Catherine Hughes, Facebook

8. We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011), dir. Lynne Ramsay

We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011), dir. Lynne Ramsay
Oscilloscope Laboratories

“[Lynne Ramsay] is so talented. The film is gorgeous and haunting and you see evil incarnate. I highly recommend it to everyone. It’s also based on a book written by a woman, Lionel Shriver.” – America Lopez, Facebook

9. Eve’s Bayou (1997), dir. Kasi Lemmons

Eve's Bayou (1997), dir. Kasi Lemmons

“I’ve never felt so connected to a film before. Some shots in that movie communicated so much more than words could.” –boopydoopbilly

11. A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014), dir. Ana Lily Amirpour

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (2014), dir. Ana Lily Amirpour
