red riding hood is (gasp!) a woman

Catherine Hardwicke's "Red Riding Hood," starring the sublime Amanda Seyfried, has been reviewed - and dismissed - mostly by male critics.

Clueless male critics.

While the reviewers were busy thinking of oh-so-clever quips to level at Hardwicke's film, what was lost on them is what Hardwicke actually accomplished here, for better or worse, in terms of feminist filmmaking.

Major positions on Hardwicke's team are filled by ... women.

The film's director of photograhy is Mandy Walker.

Her film was edited by Nancy Richardson and Julia Wong.

Cindy Evans did the costume designs.

Maxine Gervais worked as the film's all-important digital intermediate colorist, and Katie Largay served as digital editor/assistant colorist.

Go, Hardwicke!

That's all well and good, but I have to say this movie bored me. My girlfriend liked it though!
