CUT THE RIBBON, SUSAN SEIDELMAN
Posted on February 27, 2014 by Editorial Staff
One of the brightest female independent film makers in the American cinema of the 80ies, if the not the sole. A director that spoke to her generation describing virtues and hysteria of the modern woman putting together different characters, make them fight, make them friends. The rich bored with her life, the independent and free girl. The beautiful successful against the ugly normal. Contrasts, every Susan Seidelman film is a meeting of differences and a war between social classes that are supposed to not exist anymore. Born in 1952 in Philadelphia, Seidelman is maybe the only director to have the guts to cast a beautiful fresh, and almost unknown, Madonna. The success of Desperately Seeking Susan (1985) is something that goes behind expectations and set Madonna to stardom while Seidelman, who never had a commercial success before, continued working as an independent girl. And still she is, in her own way. After being the director of Sex And The City pilot, she focused on the aging of her 80ies beautiful women. Latest Seidelman’s projects are on them so check out link below.
