Connie Wilson reviews “20th Century Women” for The Movie Blog

tmb_new_logo-web-transThere are so many good lines in “Twentieth Century Women” and so much wisdom and information imparted that I can heartily recommend the movie on that basis alone, and I’m going to share some of that wisdom with you momentarily. Add to that the fact that Annette Bening turns in another great performance (she was Golden Globe nominated) and that the film has actually put titles of some of the better books on feminism and other idealistic pursuits onscreen at key moments, and it can certainly be considered educational. What books and films are cited: “Forever”, 1975, Judy Blume.  “The Road Less Traveled”, 1978, Scott Peck.  “The Politics of Orgasm,” 1970, Susan Lydon.  Another by Zoe Moss about the aging woman, written in 1970, which professes that“It hurts to be old and obsolete and alone.” “A Crisis of Confidence” by Jimmy Carter.  A film by Koyaanisqatsi, 1982, by Godfrey Reggie and Philip Glass. (onscreen, the dates for the film are listed as 1971-1975)
