The Punk Singer


80 min minutes

So many music documentaries feel like laurel-buffing victory laps, but Sini Anderson's The Punk Singer feels like a revelation. Its subject: Kathleen Hanna, cofounder of riot grrrl, creator of the bands Bikini Kill and Le Tigre, coiner of the phrase "smells like teen spirit," and spouse of Ad-Rock, who's captured in all her explosively multifaceted glory. I've been a Hanna fan for decades; this film introduced her to me as someone new. To quote talking head Carrie Brownstein, it's "an empowering and surreal experience." (DAVID SCHMADER)
