Women to Watch: September New Releases in Film

September film is STACKED. This month is so loaded with new work from women writers and directors, in fact, that I’ve been forced to split September new releases into TWO posts: one for film and one for television. That’s Bad-Ass. And unprecedented for this list. Much of this has to do with the Fall TV schedule – you’ll…

Women to Watch: August New Releases in Film + Television

When I think August, I think END OF SUMMER. That’s a frightening thought. So let’s think AUGUST NEW RELEASES instead, shall we? What’s The Women to Watch List? I started this project all the way back in May. Three months later and I’m both surprised and not surprised. Surprised, because there are SO MANY movies and television…

Film School: The Best Film-Inspired Classes on Skillshare

I’ve shared a little bit of “film school” with you before (see How to Actively Watch a Film, Reading the Shot). Today, I want to continue that series with some lessons from other filmmakers/students of film.

Quick crit and review of Karyn Kusama's long-awaited horror/thriller "The Invitation" | onecriticalbitch.com

The Invitation is Haunted, Cultish, Creepy L.A. Horror at its Best

It took seven years for Karyn Kusama to follow-up her last feature film with The Invitation. It was worth the wait. The Invitation (2016) You look different, Edie.

Women to Watch: July New Releases

Summer blockbusters are here! And with those July new releases come a good number of women written, directed, and produced projects. Yes, that Ghostbusters reboot is one of them. But so is Ab-Fab, and that’s a DAMN BLESSING. via GIPHY First time readers, here’s the deal: I premiered this monthly series back in May as a means to an end. An…

Quick crit and review of Yorgos Lanthimos' dark comedy "The Lobster" | onecriticalbitch.com

The Lobster: Greek Myths and Lonely Men

The Lobster is the kind of movie you’re going to need to see twice. The Lobster (2016) Because lobsters live for over one hundred years, are blue-blooded like aristocrats, and stay fertile all their lives. I also like the sea very much. Three times. Possibly four. You’re going to need the appropriate amount of viewings to sort…

Celebrating the life of actor Anton Yelchin - Here are 5 of his best films | onecriticalbitch.com

The Best Films of Anton Yelchin

I’m struck by the loss of Anton Yelchin. A week ago I was writing about his fantastic turn in Green Room. Today, I’m writing this. Yelchin passed away Sunday morning in Los Angeles. Taking a look today, I’m struck even more that at only 27 he has left us with such a large reel of film.…

Women Filmmakers + Showrunners: What to Watch in May

We have a problem. A systemic, deep-set, unacceptable, not-so-small problem. Women filmmakers – where are they? Do they exist? Are they all on some secret retreat writing, planning, getting ready to release their work into the world on a historic day called THE DAY WOMEN FINALLY TAKE OVER THE WORLD? Probably not (but I’ve still got…

How To Take Shit: 5 ways you can learn to take criticism better (and weed out the shit that doesn't matter) | Read it on onecriticalbitch.com

Receiving Criticism: Or, How to Take Shit

People hate criticism. Writers, artists, scientists, your Mom – no one wants to hear all the ways they’re screwing up. The only thing they hate more than the criticism itself? The jerk who doles it out. As a self-proclaimed critical bitch, I like to think I know something about criticism. But the general presumption about…
