5.0 out of 5 stars Great insight April 4 2014
By S. Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was dragged to the Mall in DC to see Fugazi and "some lame chicks rights band" back in the day. I was an unaware young man just going for a free show and walked away with with a seed planted in my head. Bikini Kill opened my mind to a wave of bands and ideas that has taken the years since then to really sink in. Kathleen is such an amazing person and artist, this film goes beyond all the BS and gives a slight peak at the person behind the art. I am sure I could go on but there are reviews here that spill it out better than I can, in parting buy this movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! Dec 31 2013

I had forgotten how much she did for the music scene - especially for women. I was introduced to the punk scene several years after the riot girl movement had already been around and so much was already different thanks to bands like Bikini Kill. Also as someone who is battling chronic Lyme disease myself, I really appreciate her talking about and even showing her disease on film. More people need to know about this awful disease that is becomming an epidemic. I appreciate Kathleen Hanna bringing attention to the disease, showing her struggles and realiy to the audience.

4.0 out of 5 stars "We Were Gonna Do What We Did Whether We Got Attention Or Not" - Kathleen April 26 2014
By Sheryl Fechter - Published on Amazon.com
'Bikini Kill' was just one of those really great bands fronted by the talented Kathleen Hanna. Showing so much of the band in concert, along with Hanna talking freely, I really enjoyed this documentary as I haven't heard much about her in such a long time. Now Sini Anderson gives us this musical look, along with her additional camera work, into this Punk Rock band with a message as clear as crystal. The feminist wave of female rockers was understood differently by different people, although Hanna defines being a feminist right here: "Feminism is standing up to any and all oppression for anyone". This "Rebel Girl", Kathleen Hanna, was a beam of well needed light into the darkest issues concerning women. 'Bikini Kill' revamped concerts with an open invite for all the girls to get to the front of the audience. This was to keep them away from the violent nature of concerts as she was seeing them at the time. With songs about abuse, rape, violence, sexism and objectifying women, Kathleen Hanna punched out her feelings with lyrical fists.

Not only did she have her own band, she also co-found the 'Riot Grrrl' revolution. These were bands with so much to say, and also, they were produced by rocker Joan Jett. Strong, angry, decisive, and thematic with a commanding presence, the Riot Grrrl's movement took the Punk scene with its own fury. Kathleen had made some very influential friends in Kurt Cobain and also the band 'Sonic Youth', among many others during her time in both ventures.

Before 'Bikini Kill' eventually broke up, Kathleen helped to make fanzines which explained their reasoning for feelings that they each had. This was done to go into 'Riot Grrrl' with a "Manifesto", which they named it. Feminism was not dead nor apathetic, and their intent was to bring it to the stage; right to the National Mall in Washington D.C. It was all about reconciling the differences and likenesses in all women. She was the first one to come forth, and the hardest to forget. Kathleen was a true leader in the band, but mainly of the cause. It was at this time she met her husband to be, 'Rock and Roll Hall of Fame' Inductee, Adam Horovitz of the "Beastie Boys".

Until this documentary, I didn't know what happened to Kathleen Hanna. Where she was, what had happened to her. She had been at the top of her game, fronting the band 'Le Tigre' with friend Johanna Fateman and then, she was gone. The atmospheric docudrama tells her story, talks candidly, honestly and openly about what Kathleen Hanna went through after leaving. As she would clarify that "She didn't have anything more to say", although later admits this was not true. Kathleen has very serious issues that she and her supportive husband, Adam, are still struggling with which she explains here. Thanks to this project, I was able to catch up with Kathleen's personal life. Anderson gives us a completely informative, well done documentary, which you wouldn't want to miss if you are a fan of Punk Rock and/or just love music in general.

A great music doc of strong women trying to make change. So much respect for Kathleen Hanna for all that she overcame, stood for and still stands for.

Any fan of Kathleen Hanna would enjoy this documentary. I can't wait to buy The Julie Ruin CD. I wish the film had gone into depth a little more than it did, but still interesting.
