  • She's Beautiful When She's Angry (NR)

    This energetic 2014 documentary chronicles the explosion of feminist activism that followed the 1964 publication of Betty Friedan's The Feminine Mystique, pairing archival footage of the movement's leaders with more than a dozen talking-head interviews of the same women (including Kate Millett, Ellen Willis, Alix Kates Shulman, Susan Brownmiller, Susan Griffin, and Eleanor Holmes Norton). more...

    Sing Your Song (NR)

    Released in tandem with Harry Belafonte's memoir, My Song, this fascinating 2011 documentary about the entertainer, activist, and humanitarian can hardly be called objective: it was produced by his daughter Gina, includes his own scripted voice-over narration, and skips over recent statements that have landed him in hot water (labeling President Bush a terrorist, referring to Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice as "house slaves"). more...
