Give Women a Chance

November 04, 1995

I have long been critical of your lack of female movie reviewers. (Call it what you like, the end result is the same: no women's voices in your reviews.) But a line in John Anderson's review of "Now and Then" was unconscionable ("Female Bonding in a Fragmented 'Now,' " Calendar, Oct. 20). He writes that female bonding is all over the screen this year and is "uniformly dreadful to watch. . . ."

Hello, editors! It's no surprise to me that a man isn't that interested in female bonding. For me, I found the mega-hit "A River Runs Through It" and all its male bonding to be a pedestrian bore. But I wouldn't expect the Los Angeles Times to pay me for that opinion and to publish it as well.

Please, until your disdain of female reviewers changes, do us all a favor and eschew reviewing any movies that are by, for or about women. Then, we can be reminded to turn to other publications that employ female reviewers.
