i tried watching twin peaks, and the experience wasn't enjoyable. i didn't like its use of violence against women as a plot device, i didn't like the hypersexualization of women, i didn't like how the characters with plot agency were primarily men.
so, i try googling for better things to watch, using some combination of "feminist" and "movie/tv recommendations." but, in doing that, i'm bludgeoned over the head with clickbait listicles using "feminist" as a marketing buzzword. "Top 10 Movies With Empowering Female Leads" ... but, that's not what i want! i don't want Feminist (TM), i want "enjoyable movies that pass critical feminist analysis," i.e. "typical" films, but written from perspectives different than the norm.
i loved tomboy, which was written/directed by celine sciamma. she also did portrait of a lady on fire, which is next in my queue because my queer circles have been raving about it. what else should i check out?
