Match films 2021


I watched 42 films in March, 26 by men and 16 by women with 11 rewatches. For some reason my French, US and Japanese intellectuals are interspersed with all kinds of horror, sleaze and exploitation cinema from all over the place. Lockdown is clearly interfering in my usual encounters with perversion and desire – lol, I wish. 😁


Lows? Josie and the Pussycats, Russ Meyer

Highs, keeping me vaguely sane? Mia Hansen-Løve (rewatched all of them, reinforcing my admiration and love), Miranda July, SHOWGIRLS, Mädchen in Uniform, Shunya Ito and Meiko Kaji, Éric Rohmer. My favourite bit of knowledge was learning in Adam Naman's It Doesn't Suck that Mia Hansen-Løve loves Showgirls. First viewing for me and straight into my favourite films of all time.

Feminist Friday: Mädchen in Uniform & Female Prisoner Scorpion: Jailhouse 41

Weird Wednesday: The Wicker Man & The Future.

Super Showgirls Saturday: Eden, Showgirls & You Don’t Nomi.
