Media Moment: Kathryn Bigelow

Last class, Kathryn Bigelow was mentioned. This afternoon, I noticed this article. Bret Easton Ellis, who wrote "American Psycho", always tweets some crazy stuff and today he tweeted that Kathryn Bigelow is highly overrated and only well-received as a director because she's "a very hot woman."

First and foremost, do you think that Bigelow is as well-regarded as she is due to the fact that she's a woman? I'm not asking if you think she's talented or not. That's a different question. Finally to me, the statement re-made me think about the fact that there aren't a lot of Hollywood women directors. Why is that? Will that change soon?
