An important piece of testimony in the fight for the civil rights of female directors in Hollywood.
It's experiential revelation as advocacy filmmaking, an incisive and inviting example of the personal as political.
Half the Picture may not fill in all the blanks but it is a start.
Even though so much of what this film has to say is so ingrained in me already, I still found myself being surprised.
"Half the Picture" becomes an unwitting example of the impossible bind facing women filmmakers.
Half the Picture is a vital, comprehensive documentary on a subject that's so fundamental to the industry it's about, you have to wonder why dozens of movies on this scale or bigger haven't already been made.
It almost goes without saying that Half The Picture is an important documentary, not only because it is incredibly topical, but also because it provides an unflinching look into a situation that has been overlooked for far too long.
Why did I leave this movie teary eyed but optimistic? Because it delivers a message of hope.
Overall, "Half the Picture" examines an essential topic to Hollywood today with grace.
It's a lot of talk, but as on-screen conversations go, it's an essential one.
An absorbing and inspiring film which marks another step towards equality of opportunity in the film industry.
Authoritative and insightful, this essential film gives much needed cultural breathing room to some remarkable Hollywood women to discuss how they are undermined or shut out entirely from the industry.
