The 52 Films Directed By Women Project - COMPLETE AND RANKED

Better late than never?

I don't normally pay any attention to the gender, race or sexuality of people who have directed the films I've watched but I'm also not blind to the fact that 99.9% of them were directed by white straight men.

So I thought I'd give this a shot out of interest to see if these provide me with a different viewing experience than the vast majority of stuff I've watched in my life. I'll watch one a week or so, on a Saturday as far as possible so I remember.

Reviews under the notes and that. These aren't necessarily the order I'll watch them in but I'll move the ones I do watch to the top when I've watched them.
