Ms. Dore's work is not only a tribute to past bravery and determination, but also a warning and urgent rallying cry to the next wave.
Although much of that archival footage is incredibly familiar after decades of exposure - the burning bras, the clever protest signs, the impassioned speeches, Gloria Steinem - it's the footage of the opposition that really shocks.
The wealth of anecdotal material provides a fascinating perspective on how the movement intersected -- and sometimes clashed -- with other liberal crusades of the 60s.
It's a bubbling cauldron of newfound freedom and energy coming to life, an inspiring reminder of what people of a like mind and heart can accomplish. "She's Beautiful When She's Angry" is a thing of beauty indeed.
A superbly researched and edited documentary about the women's movement in the 1960s.
Intermittently interesting and occasionally compelling history of the feminist movement's early days.
Blistering, informative, and wildly entertaining. But the most jaw-dropping thing about the film is that it's somehow the very first of its kind; never before has the women's movement been the subject of a feature documentary.
She's Beautiful When She's Angry's portrait of "This is what feminism looked like," seems lacking.
It's a loving portrait of a powerful group of women who demanded a seat at the table for all of us.
You couldn't ask for a more inclusive account of the women's liberation.
Directed, produced, and shot exclusively by women, She's Beautiful When She's Angry tells the story of the American feminist movement.
This feature length documentary covers a lot of ground in a remarkably focused way and at a satisfying pace.
"She's Beautiful When She's Angry" is a spirited and informative documentary about what has come to be termed second wave femimism from 1966 to 1971. As inspired as these feminists were by "The Feminine Mystique" by Betty Friedan, this rapidly evolving movement eventually passed her by, as younger women from all walks of life and other political movements joined the struggle for women's rights.
Overall, the documentary makes great use of archival footage to remind us of the horrible sexist attitudes of the past, along with a reminder of the lack of reproductive rights before Roe v. Wade, in order to show how far women have come in this country since then. Much more importantly, we get to hear from the members of this second wave feminist movement, including famed writer Rita Mae Brown, then and now, who as one participant puts it, came together 'with only mimeographs and stamps.' So while, yes, bras were burned, so also were university degrees. But as much as this documentary proves a valuable reminder and inspiration for the current generation of feminists, it also shows that the fight goes on.
