1. A film essay on women in the action genre.

    How do you write a good female action hero?

    1. Write women into your script
    2. Give your female characters some lines
    3. Give your female characters their own narrative
    4. Don't kill your female characters
    5. Don't ship' her at the end

  2. We see the male gaze placed on women in film time and time again. But what happens when a protagonist (in all my the examples I could find, male) places the gaze on an object and not a physical, living, breathing woman? When the male is a post-modern existential male we find a pattern. I am going to try to show this pattern using handful examples, almost all science fiction, some comedy, some drama.

  5. “It seems the world is the summation of others, and yet we neither know nor are told that we will fulfill each other... Why is it that the world is constructed so loosely?” – from Kore-eda's Air Doll (2009)
