Miss Representation

Jennifer Siebel Newsom

2011

★★★★★ out of 5

I’ve never felt so helpless watching this film.  It might sound silly, but I legitimately became teary in frustration at a few points when some of these women told their stories.  You always hear, “oh women are not equal” or “there’s so much sexism” but seeing it here all in front of you, compiled together for a 90 minute documentary just makes you truly aware of what a problem it is.  This covers everything from body image issues of teenagers, to how women can’t be taken seriously in government, to the sexualization of newscasters and even talks with men about the issues they face of suppressing emotions.  With a multitude of strong female role models from government, news shows, professors, and actresses, you might spend most of the time yelling at the screen in frustration at some of the things you hear.  This is a documentary that really talks about the issues that we want to talk about in a way that really gets you to WANT to talk about it.  It’s on Netflix right now, so if you have that, YOU SHOULD WATCH THIS.  I don’t care if you’re a man or a woman, this is something that should be seen.  This changed my life and definitely will have an impact on how I take on the problems and future discussions about this issue.

2011 was the year I became a self-proclaimed cinephile.

2012 was the year I watched 366 new films that I had never seen before.

2013 was the year I started the 222 movie challenge and began making gifs for my blog.

2014 is the year I keep up my challenges and start tackling more filmographies and "classic films."


Feel free to send me any movie suggestions! I'm always on the lookout for follower favorites.



Each month I change up the profile & sidebar pictures to a favorite film. Since I started making gifs, I thought I could be a bit more creative and add some visual interest month by month.

This month's film is Thirst
