What proportion of your ranked movies are by women?

Postby djross » Sat Jan 29, 2011 10:33 pm

The Criticker collection "Female directors" now contains over 1000 movies, and is a great bit of Criticker metadata compiled by users. By restricting this collection to my own rankings, I can find out the number of movies directed by women I have seen and ranked: 94. Of course, this presumes there are no movies directed by women I have ranked that haven't yet been added to the collection. While I know for sure the collection is incomplete, I think it is pretty good, at least as far as the movies I have seen goes. So, 94 out of 2212 makes 4.25%. How does this compare with other users?

Additionally, of the 94 rankings directed by women, 41 were for documentaries (43.6%), whereas overall documentaries only represent 13.5% of my viewing (299 of 2212). Thus the proportion of my rankings that were directed by women, if documentaries are excluded, is even lower (53 out of 1913): 2.77%

118/3537 which is 3.3% for me

As for your observation about documentaries, it may be partially due to more documentaries being directed by women. 204/4363 4.7% documentaries are in the collection while 1011/54665 1.8% of all films in the database are in the collection.

39/2065 for me.... or 1.89% with zero documentaries among them.

I guess this puts me pretty much in line with overall proportion of female directed films in the database. Is this collection comprehensive or a work in progress?

Definitely a work in progress, there's no easy way to search for such films or even their directors, so it's more of a when you find one add them and all their films type of thing. Most major female directors are probably in there but I'm sure a few are missing and probably a bunch who've only made a few films.

130 out of 4341 = 2.99 %

2 are documentaries (American Teen, Jesus Camp) and 0 are short films.

Waaaaay more than I thought. Never realized that Billy Madison was directed by a girl.

39 out of 753 = 5.2%

An impressive 9 of which are in my Tier 10. I guess I'm easy to please. Never knew that City of God was partly directed by a woman.
