  • The Punk Singer is a perfect storm. It is a love letter to Kathleen Hanna, to feminism, and to the fans, but it’s also just a damn good movie. show more

  • The doc happily devotes most of its time to a stylish, energetic account of Hanna's career to date and the impact it has had on a generation of women. show more

  • At its best, The Punk Singer tells the story of one pivotal life in a whole movement. Both Anderson and Hanna are at pains to avoid giving the impression that one singer carried the movement single-handedly. show more
