A couple reactions: Most of the best directors UP UNTIL NOW have been men; mostly because of opportunities, etc. That will change, I imagine, in the coming decades.

But I also think there is a growing revolt against the New Puritans. Just as McCarthyism led to a left-wing social movement in the '60s and '70s, I think our modern ideological tyranny will lead to a social pushback that will result in a new flowering of freedom and liberty.

So I would say don't give up on cinema just yet. ;-)
