Not Every Film Has to Pass the Bechdel Test (And Some Shouldn’t Even Try)
“Dunkirk” and “Their Finest” present two perspectives on World War II, only one of which passes the Bechdel Test. That shouldn’t matter.
By Kate Erbland

Interesting read and makes some good points. Misses out on others though.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t the Bechdel test always more of a thing to show how little women are featured in general and that only few from all movies pass this small requirements? And more of to show that only few percents even have female speaking roles, not about a single movie to be judged on its own (at least not unless it claims to feature woman heavily and then still failing). It doesn’t say anything about quality of female roles or anything at all. It is indeed just a small very imperfect quick test and not a deep analysis.

In an ideal movie-making world not every movie has to pass the Bechdel (or reverse Bechdel) test, but those movies are more of an exception than the rule. Same with the other tests. In an ideal movie world not every movie will pass all tests, not every movie will have African-American leads or stories where a female character has its own story arch. It’s about diversity. It’s about telling different stories from different point of views and not saying that the white-male view and experience is the dominating one that is a template for everyone out there. Not every single work has to be diverse, but the movie world in itself has to represent diversity and offer opportunities.
