Bret disses Bigelow

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - REEL NEWS -

Bret Eas­ton El­lis is work­ing hard to make him­self un­pop­u­lar with de­cent folk. His lat­est non­sen­si­cal out­burst on Twit­ter – af­ter com­par­ing Michael Haneke to Hitler a few months back – found him sug­gest­ing that Kathryn Bigelow, di­rec­tor of the highly ac­claimed Zero Dark Thirty, is over­rated be­cause she is an at­trac­tive woman. The tweet read: “Kathryn Bigelow would be con­sid­ered a mildly in­ter­est­ing film-maker if she was a man but since she’s a very hot woman she’s really over­rated.” Yeah, that’s right. Fe­male direc­tors in Hol­ly­wood get all the breaks. It’s really a woman’s world. (In case you have lost all crit­i­cal sen­si­bil­i­ties, Bret, we should clar­ify that we’re be­ing sar­cas­tic.)
