FIVE FILMS: Women who thrill

Birds’ Eye View’s Simone Glover has picked five Films that shows us that women directors don’t need to kill off all the blondes to be masters of suspense. Thrillers are so much more than the thrills they elicit – they look to restore order.           We need this to feel that there is a center of things – morality counts, exposing the truth is worth the price, nomatter; the people we love and everyday life are worth fighting and dying for. Writer, Patricia Highsmith (Strangers on a Train, and the Ripley novels), described a thriller as: “A story in which the possibility of violent action, even death, is close all the time.”
