The Punk Singer

As of this week, Nirvana is on its way to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — and its Washington peer Bikini Kill should be there, too. Not that Kathleen Hanna and her bandmates in the landmark Riot Grrrl act have much use for that particular institution, but their contribution to the culture is incalculable. Director Sini Anderson's documentary about Hanna is adoring but insightful, part neat primer on third-wave feminism's dovetailing with Generation X's music and zine communities, part reminder of Bikini Kill's fearsome presence. And it's just plain good to hear Hanna again, following a long medical leave of absence that seems to be over now.
