Contrasting with the ferment of the times, the film is orderly and rather subdued, but it's an excellent introduction to a movement that produced artists as diverse as Yoko Ono, Cindy Sherman, and Miranda July.

By the end of the film, you'll be searching out the work of Judy Chicago, Sheila de Bretteville, Faith Ringgold, Miranda July and the Guerrilla Girls, among many others.

It's both enlightening and a bit messy, but then history is always messy.

It's affecting, and the tone, which is polemical, is also rueful and realistic.

We weren't all there watching the struggle take place, and a more clearly stated thesis or a simple delineation of cause and effect could have gone a long way.

To see this seismic subculture memorialized with such an amazing trove of archival clips is worth tolerating pretentious blather; you feel like you're bearing witness to a monumental act of reclamation.

!Women Art Revolution moves briskly, unfolding as one lively sit-down after another with artists, scholars, and curators who established themselves at the height of second-wave feminism.

Anyone seeking a dialectic, of course, can look elsewhere, but Hershman Leeson's film is a valuable resource on a movement whose issues remain relevant.
