MISS REPRESENTATION, please. I ask this because the introductory few minutes are so thuddingly repetitive and so full of what's wrong with the media vis-à-vis women that the movie looks more like the problem than the solution. Yes, I understand that women are angry at how they are almost always portrayed, but using two or three really choice examples of this might work better than flooding us with 20 or 30 of the same old/same old. Once it calms down, however, the documentary -- from Kimberlee Acquaro and Jennifer Siebel Newsom (the latter, who narrates and is featured in the film, is shown below) -- grows more interesting by leaps and bounds.
Jackson Katz, above, is particularly telling on the subject of machismo).
Cory Booker (on spiritual healing!) and Glora Steinem to Pat Robertson and Rachel Maddow (above) -- who comes off as particularly bright and well-spoken. (Mr. Robertson's statement about "women's agenda" is both hilarious and scary.) We also hear from actresses such as Geena Davis (shown at bottom) and Daphne Zuniga, both of whom have pertinent contributions to make.
Condoleeza Rice (above), as any arbiter of fact or truth, you're in big trouble. Ms Rice proved herself a liar and a war criminal, as part of that ignoble group who led our country into an unnecessary was in Iraq by virture of lies told over and over again. The whole pack of them ought to be serving time, if not shipped off to the mideast and forced to fight on the ground the war they started that has now taken so many American and Iraqi lives. What does seeing Rice used here as some sort of "model" say to women? Yes, she is intelligent and she was powerful, but ignoring what she did is reprehensible in the extreme and as hypocritical as it would seem possible to be.
