10 Great (According to Film School Rejects) Films You Didn't Know Were Directed by Women...

Indeed, Film School Rejects has done this list, and while I think more than a couple of these people will already know a woman directed, it's an interesting group of films. The whole article can be found here, but this is the list:

10. Real Genius (Martha Coolidge)
9. Titus (Julie Taymor)
8. American Psycho (Mary Harron)
7. Point Break (Kathryn Bigelow)
6. Billy Madison (Tamra Davis)
5. Hideout in the Sun (Doris Wishman)
4. Wayne's World (Penelope Spheeris)
3. Fast Times at Ridgemont High (Amy Heckerling)
2. Big (Penny Marshall)
1. Pet Cemetery (Mary Lambert)



  1. I'm not gonna lie, I absolutely love Real Genius...

  2. This is a cool list, especially with this year's upcoming female contenders. I confess to not knowing that Billy Madison was directed by a woman.

  3. that was the only one I wasn't aware of also...

  4. Some of these are pretty good, but I feel that the word "great" as a descriptor may be a touch subjective.

  5. indeed....their words, not mine...though most if not all are enjoyable, at least
