Terry’s Picks: Barbara Kopple, Robin Wright and Women Can Direct Superhero Movies

Barbara Kopple (with headphones) directing Running from Crazy

Congratulating: Barbara Kopple on her Primetime Emmy nomination for her documentary Running From Crazy.

Admiring: NWWIFT Muse honoree Robin Wright’s performance in A Most Wanted Man. Phillip Seymour Hoffman also gives a stunning last performance in the film.

Agreeing; with Melissa Silverstein’s Open Letter to Sony Chief Amy Pascal encouraging her to hire a women director for the female superhero movie in the Spider-man franchise.

Terry Lawler is NYWIFT’s Executive Director. Tune in every Tuesday for her picks.
