It's here… Several months after the untimely demise of Filmstruck (the cinephile-beloved streaming service that formerly offered up a wide range of programming that incorporated classic films as well as Criterion Collection titles), the Criterion Channel has risen from the ashes. So far, it's about $11 a month (after your free...

April 2019 feels like a strong month for streaming services on the #directedbywomen front, with services like Amazon Prime, Netflix, Hulu, Shudder, and beyond welcoming over 19 titles to their on-demand libraries. High points include Shudder bringing Swiss director Lisa Brühlmann's unnerving coming-of-age mermaid tale BLUE MY...

[Ed. note: You can find The Celluloid Void's complete list of 400+ streaming women-directed films here.]

I’m not going to lie—I’d much rather head to a video store and rent a movie (or go to a repertory screening) rather than watching it at home. But I also subscribe to most of the major streaming services and am always keeping...

That got me digging through the archives to see what other female filmmakers I could dig up films from, rather than streaming more episodes of...

The characters who populate the old-timey Westerns I grew up watching always seemed to have one thing on their minds: pushing westward across the wide-open plains, fording raging rapids, surveying sweeping vistas, and carving their way through the treacherous mountains. Manifest destiny, California or bust… Those movies never...

If you live in Los Angeles (in certain Hollywood-adjacent neighborhoods, anyway), you’ve met a guy or two like the main character in David Robert Mitchell’s ambitious yet ultimately underwhelming UNDER THE SILVER LAKE: He’s always in between creative jobs, he lives in an apartment he can’t really afford (covered in classic fil...

INT. HOSPITAL — NIGHT. Walking through a dark, empty L.A. hospital all by her lonesome, a pretty blonde nurse heads for the showers after her shift is over. She strips off her clothes and stands beneath the hot water with her eyes clothes, relieved and relaxed at the end of a long day. Only she’s not alone: Someone is watching...

Deborah Haywood’s fantastic debut feature, PIN CUSHION, puts a glittery gloss over the all-too-real misery that is adolescence.
