~ Attention Readers – Take 8 ~
Miss V/or Victoria, writing for Girls Do Film, is taking part in the Beach Party Blogathon hosted by Speakeasy and Silver Screenings, her inspired entry was a review of And God Created Woman by Roger Vadim. This ostensible review played host to a fascinating piece on Brigitte Bardot as sexual liberator at a time when femininity was not open to interpretation.
Continuing in this vein I’d like to draw your attention to Courtney’s post on Women and the Box Office. Channeling the recent discourse on feminism surrounding the release of Mad Max: Fury Road Courtney brings a fresh argument to the agenda featuring Tomorrowland and Pitch Perfect 2. Courtney writes for Cinema Axis.
…and with a complete shift I’d like to share a post from Flashback/Backslide. With much anticipation building up to the release of Jurassic World later this week, the Quote of the Week reminisces back to a time when we heard those immortal words, “Dinosaurs eat man. Woman inherits the earth.” Okay so not a complete shift but I had to get Jurassic World in here somewhere.
