No Score Yet Starstruck (1982) Australian director Gillian Armstrong resurrects every convention you can think of and stands it on its head. - Sojourner EDIT

60% Ladies and Gentlemen: The Fabulous Stains (1981) It's a completely "new-fashioned" brand of humor, light years from the I-Love-Lucy zaniness of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes or the cool, sophisticated repartee of Stage Door. - Sojourner EDIT

98% A Star Is Born (1954) James Mason rescues much of the story with his magnificent acting; Judy Garland distracts us from the rest of it with her magnificent singing. - Sojourner EDIT

92% Jules and Jim (1962) It turns out that the "gloriously independent" Catherine is really little more than Truffaut's idea of a captivating-but-ultimately-evil femininity. - Sojourner EDIT

No Score Yet Marianne and Juliane (Die bleierne Zeit) (1981) [Director Margarethe] Von Trotta's greatest achievement lies in making all of this emotionally resonant. - Sojourner EDIT

No Score Yet Le Voyage en Douce (Sentimental Journey) (1980) Certain parts of the film are nevertheless worth seeing-if only because of their portrayal of the women's friendship. - Sojourner EDIT

No Score Yet Tell Me a Riddle (1980) Since its saving graces abound, I can't help loving the film of Tell Me a Riddle; I'm merely saddened at the thought that what those graces save it from is travesty. - Sojourner EDIT

63% The Mirror Crack'd (1980) A film which makes it absolutely necessary for the women actors to maintain a substantial distance between themselves and their roles. Other women might prefer to "maintain a substantial distance" between themselves and any theatre that's showing it. - Sojourner EDIT

86% Loulou (1980) "Very French," as some would say. I would say it's less "French" than irresponsible. - Sojourner EDIT

92% Gloria (1980) What's important is that we do have the brilliantly written, brilliantly acted character of Gloria. - Sojourner EDIT

No Score Yet Die linkshändige Frau (The Left-Handed Woman) (1980) I'd like to believe in the woman's burgeoning selfhood, but I can't. - Sojourner EDIT
