As of October 2017, only one woman has won Best Director at the Oscars, and only one woman has won Best Director at the Golden Globes. (Two different women, it should be pointed out.)
Only four films directed by women have won Best Picture in any category at either of the two awards - two of those were also the films that won Best Director.
El bar (2017)
Brutal yet Humorous Psychological Thriller
I'll preface this by saying this is probably not a film for everyone, but I greatly enjoyed it. The essential plot idea is there are several strangers in a bar in Madrid when a shooting happens right outside the door, and they find themselves trapped together for reasons I won't spoil.
What follows is a tense psychological thriller about human nature, and a what-would- you-do-if-it-happened-to-you type of story line. It's written well, with moments of humor that land incredibly well without breaking the line of suspense being pulled tighter and tighter as the story goes on. It's definitely brutal at times, make no mistake there, but I was caught up in it and along for the ride to the very end.
