If you're anything like us, you're usuallly in the market for a good DVD. Here's our list. Mostly, we ordered these movies from Netflix so you can check them out there. Originally, many were part of a list I was developing for PW & Feminism, an online course I taught last year on the PW site. Now the list is a giant mix. Some of these movies are completely marvelous. Some problematic. All are interesting for one reason or another. We had fun seeing them all.
If the spirit moves, feel free to post your reactions on the Public Forum. Enjoy.
