Top 10 best movies directed by women

A shout out to women directors and their amazing work

Everyone enjoys a good movie. Personally, I know I do. With that being said, this is a list of my top 10 favorite movies, directed by women.

10.  “The Marvels” directed Nia DaCosta, this movie is ranked at number 10 because I am not the biggest fan of Marvel movies, but I have to admit, it is a good movie. Just not my favorite.

9. “Kung Fu Panda 3” directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson is standing at number nine because the movie is still new. It came out in early 2024, and I have seen it once but not enough to fully love it. Yet.

8. “Little Women” directed by Greta Gerwig, I put this film at eight because it is very good, but there are ones I prefer over this.

7. “Twilight” directed by Catherine Hardwicke is seventh on the list because I have only seen this movie a number of times and personally, it is not my favorite.

6. “Pitch Perfect 2” directed by Elizabeth Banks is ranked at sixth because I really do enjoy this movie. It is always a good laugh and the sound track is extremely catchy, but there are just a few above it.

5. “Barbie” another movie directed by Greta Gerwig. “Barbie” came out over the summer of 2023 and instantly became very popular. With a deep sentimental meaning, I saw this movie one time so far and although I do like it. I just don’t enjoy it as much as other people do.

4. “Frozen” and “Frozen II” both directed by Jennifer Lee, these two are both ranked at four because I do love these classic Disney films as much as the next person, but they are not the best movies included on this list. Close, but not quite.

3. “Saltburn” directed by Emerald Fennell, this movie came out in November of 2o23 and became very big. This film is slightly twisted, yet so good. Which is why it is sitting comfortably at number three.

2. “Priscilla” directed by Sofia Coppola is number two because it is such a deep movie showing an inside view of Priscilla Presley’s life. The movie really captures my attention and I really enjoy watching it.

1. “Clueless” directed by Amy Heckerling is topping the list at number one because it is such a classic. I know that no matter what my mood is I can watch this movie and enjoy it. It is definitely a comfort movie for me, which is why I had to place it first on my list.
