Ah yes, the animal blankie. #classic
Would you be surprised if I told you that, according to the Bechdel Test website, only 5 of IMDB’s Top 250 passed all three Bechdel criteria in 2010? Are we really asking too much of the film industry to include two women, who talk to each other, about something besides a man? Surely this is the bare minimum of female representation we should expect from films. Women populate more than half of the world and yet we are still so often consigned to being the ‘love interest’ whose lives centre wholly around the male protagonist even to the point where the majority of mainstream films in our cinemas seem to find it impossible, in their entire run-time, to imagine a world in which a woman conducts a conversation that is not about a man.

ANYTHING IS BETTER THAN PLINKY-PLONKY MUSIC AND EMOTIONAL MANIPULATION AND BEING CONDESCENDED TO
Carey Mulligan during ‘The Great Gatsby’ press conference in Cannes (May 15, 2013).
| That’s what she said | I think even then I knew that…I was waiting for my wife. | When you’re a kid you assume your parents are soulmates. My kids are going to be right about that. | I hope the war goes on forever and Ryan gets drafted. |I’m always thinking one step ahead, like a carpenter that makes stairs. | I think I’m basically a good person. But I am going to try to make him cry. | If I had to, I could clean out my desk in five seconds, and nobody would ever know that I’d ever been here. And I’d forget, too. | I do play games. I sing and I dangle things in front of my cats. | I just want to lie on the beach and eat hot dogs. That’s all I’ve ever wanted. | Tell ya one thing, I’m not gonna be a good mom tonight. | Boy have you lost your mind? ‘Cause I’ll help you find it! | YOU’RE NOT REAL MAN! | I taught Mike some, uh, some phrases to help with his interracial conversation. You know, stuff like, “fleece it out,” “going mach 5,” “dinkin’ flicka.” You know, things us Negroes say. | I think for it to be blackmail, it would have to be a formal letter. | Disposable cameras are fun, but it seems a little wasteful. You never get to see your pictures. | Who am I? I’m Kelly Kapoor, the business bitch. | This may be the first time that a male subordinate has attempted to get a modest scheduled raise by threatening to withhold sex from a female superior. It will be a groundbreaking case, when it inevitably goes to trial. | I walked right into a job for which I was ill-prepared, ill-suited, and somebody else already had. And I got it. If you ask me, that’s the American dream right there. | It just occurred to me that Andy has been calling me ‘Plop’ for so long that he forgot my real name. | I’ve been working here 12 weeks. That’s a full season of Homeland. Ton of things can happen in that amount of time, as we’ve seen. |
