I'm really looking forward to seeing Detroit.  Kathryn Bigelow + John Boyega?  Yes please!

Her films are too manly! If she were to direct Alien 5, people would find it only normal.

Drax? Is that you?

Of course not, because Drax feels right at home with Bigelow's manliness. She's one of the guys and probably smokes cigars like Ridley Scott. Personally, I prefer the feminine perspectives of Coppola and Taymor. I hope I can find of little bit of that in Wonder Woman.

It's there in some of the details. Its still an action film though.

One man and one woman actually.  Manohla Dargis is of the female variety of human and she wrote the blurb for The Hurt Locker.

With Snyder-esque slow motion?

Yes. But Jenkins certainly isn't an action director.

I've only seen American Honey which I liked a lot, one of those examples of a non-US writer/director being more incisive about American culture in some ways. Been meaning to check out her others, particularly Fish Tank.

Yes!  Like a modern day de Tocqueville!

Fish Tank is great, definitely check it out.

To restore the balance of realistic cinematic aesthetics through time, they should have cast Rick Moranis as Captain Jack Aubrey.

What I especially love about Sofia Coppola's work is that all her movies have a very feminine voice/perspective while not being pandering, dumb chick flicks (which have their place and can be fun).  Like, they're serious, thoughtful movies that almost certainly would be very different if directed by a man.  I dunno if that makes sense, I just love her movies.

 

I've been fascinated by her as a filmmaker ever since The Virgin Suicides, though I haven't seen The Bling Ring.

No it wasn't.

 

It was a fantastic, sharp satire of American consumerism.  I still remember that shot of the robbery of the glass house, just brilliant.  The way Coppola filmed the landscape of the wealthy was particularly memorable.  It's a great movie.
