From Jan Lisa Huttner (Editor-in-Chief of FF2 Media)
Five films either written &/or directed by women filmmakers opened in Manhattan theatres this week:
- Lobster Cop
- Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts
- Never Steady, Never Still
I saw three, all of which were narrative features. Boundaries is a routine American multiplex dramedy, whereas the other two are specialty fare. Lobster Cop is a giddy comedy from China. Never Steady, Never Still is a sober and heart-breaking family drama from Canada.
How to pick between these two? Simple. I won’t. Lobster Cop and Never Steady, Never Still were both special little films, each in its own way 🙂
