A good idea to rate films based on gender representation? Probably. I think the results would be shocking. Shocking.

My take on the Bechdel test is that it’s less of a test and more of an eye-opening guideline. I mean, can you even imagine a movie that had only one man in it, or men who only talk to each other about women? Men who have no interior lives or self-interest? Is there such a thing? No? Then why are so many women in that spot exactly?

Don’t get me started on the 5% female director stat either… I will Hulk out on you. This needs to change. All of it. Grr…
