Ditta, thanks for blogging about this. I agree that fathers are an integral part of the development and upbringing of children and am glad to see this kind of forum is up and running. Have you noticed a shift or perhaps a diversification in the kinds of fathers that are presented through cinema over the past few decades? I am doing some work right now on Wes Anderson and am really enjoying the way he explores notions of fatherhood by presenting inadequate and emotionally absent fathers. Who are your favourite cinematic fathers? Your least favourite?
