breaking bad

What's outside of Pleasantville?

Sorry that I haven't been very communicative, online or in real life, for the past week or more. I'm feeling stronger, so instead of sitting at home watching DVDs and going on the Internet I'm going out to exercise, and coming back to fall asleep in the daytime. Now it's the middle of the night and I can't drop off. Sorry for complete lack of comments to friends' posts.

Feminist blogger pandagon links to a list of 10 Hollywood movies that Get Women Right. These are films where the female characters act like real people, which is rare. Obviously they are more resourceful and sexy than real people - that's what fiction means. But unlike most films, you don't spend the whole time thinking (or in my case, on the sofa shouting) 'I'd NEVER do that!' and 'She wouldn't fancy a git like him'
