A Girl and a Gun seems designed to encourage the growing number of American ladies packing heat, but it's practically reverse propaganda...

Catheryne Czubek's documentary is itself like a shotgun, as its scatter-shot thematic blast is wide and lacking in precision.

There is little to this film that isn't very obvious and sometimes even oblivious.

Since the conversation is unfocused and there's no real thesis, we get a girl and a gun but not really a movie.

No matter how moving or morally ambivalent these women are, Ms. Czubek seems content to hop from one anecdote to another, unwilling to shape her findings into a larger investigation or deeper analysis.

The subject is women and firearms. What about women and firearms? Well, did you know that some women use firearms? It's true!

Director Cathryne Czubek's well-researched, incredibly lively chronicle of the way guns are marketed to, coveted by, and portrayed with women is a vital glimpse into a cultural phenomenon.

Touches on women packing heat lately, and why. And what it all has to do with economic privilege and economic insecurity; J. Edgar Hoover; fetishizing violent women in Hollywood; Democrats; and crotchless boutique female huntress wear as all the rage.
