Female Gaze

This list contains some of the best narrative movies that, in my opinion, are made from a female POV and represent the female viewer the most.

This doesn't mean that all/only women will appreciate them. It means that women are more likely to identify with the characters, themes, situations and general approach of the film.

Note: many of the directors/writers are women but the list isn't about female filmmakers only.

Suggestions are very welcome!
