Female writer-director. I mean as a white middle-class male I sort of waltz through life blithely being the default gender and racial type in most of the situations I’m in. And so having been the producer of a film with a female director, a female writer, a film about a woman, because Louise’s character is absolutely central, and also not about an easy woman, not about someone who is just kind of happy and smiley and, “Yeah it’s all great!” It’s about a woman with an eating disorder who’s complicated, who at times is unlikable. I find myself in meetings with distribution companies where, literally, I’m sat across the table with men my own age and older as they just look at me and go, “Women don’t go to the cinema.” I go just like, “What are you talking about?!” [And they say,] “There’s no market for this because it’s got a woman in it.”
Michael Price, from mid0nz’s awesome, interesting interview with him. The whole thing is gold, but the above stuck out to me, because it makes me feel better that a white, middle-aged man gets as pissed off about this as I do. <3 (via starrla89)

Honestly, it’s quite astonishing how much misery this movie manages to pack into two hours of mostly action sequences and espionage subplots, particularly since Captain America is supposedly one of the “lighter” superheroes, compared to the unending grimdarkness of Batman. I guess this is the difference between “manpain” and “a man in legitimate emotional pain.”

The Tragedy of Bucky Barnes

this was just maybe flat out my favorite part of this review because hi, true

(via defcontwo)

it’s true there is this undercurrent of pain and loss through every minute of that film these are lost broken people BUT THE MOVIE ISN’T ABOUT THE PAIN The movie doesn’t linger on their pain it’s not pain pornit’s people existing continuing still fighting despite the pain they carry like every other goddamn person on this planet (via scifigirl47)
