Happy New Year! Anno horribilis did not end a minute too soon, and I am very happy to welcome in 2021. I doubt 2020 will be remembered fondly by anyone. So here we are, those who survived, and here is my film guide for women update: I have cut 80 pages from my 700-page film guide without losing a single review—by cutting details and examples. The goal is still 550 pages. So far I have edited the following chapters: Action/Adventure, Biography/Historical Drama, Comedy, Crime, Drama, Family, Horror, Musical and Romance/Romantic Comedy. I started editing Science Fiction/Fantasy the other day and all I will have left after that will be Thriller/Mystery, War and Western. At the end of the month I will ask a few friends to have a look at it and then hopefully it will find its way onto bookshelves very soon.
Wishing you all the best in 2021 but especially more movies by female filmmakers and progressive portrayals and treatment of female characters!
