16. 'The Punk Singer'
The main attraction of filmmaker Sini Anderson's tribute to riot grrrl pioneer Kathleen Hanna is the extensive footage of early Nineties Bikini Kill shows. It's one thing to hear admirers explain the band's impact on third-wave feminism and attest to Hanna's charismatic pull; it's another to see visual evidence of Hanna's aggressive yet un-macho performance style in real time. No less compelling, however, is the more recent intimate examination of Hanna's life with her husband, the Beastie Boys' Adam Horovitz, as the singer talks about the late-stage Lyme disease that has mostly sidelined her since 2005.
