  1. IndieWire was clearly having a hard on with Kathryn Bigelow (Point Break, are you fucking kidding me??!!) because they forgot about Margarethe von Trotta.

    Well, at least they mentioned Barbara Hammer (Dyketactics is one of the most powerful things I’ve ever watched)

  2. Two things I found amusing from that Disney Princess article:

    1.) The sign Cinderella is has next to her: Time’s Running Out Be The Fairy Godmother They Need.

    2.) The sign next to Snow White titled: How are you feeling today? with the dwarfs!

    I’m a sucker for that kinda stuff! :)
