For years, Kathleen Hanna was the patron saint of the take-no-shit, “fuck you, I’m a woman and I can play guitar better than you can” attitude known as Riot Grrrl. Armed with nothing but a mic, she screamed and got in your face while fronting punk rock band Bikini Kill and dance-punk act Le Tigre. Then she seemed to just disappear.

The Punk Singer looks at Riot Grrrl from the lens of Hanna’s career to date, with 20 years of archival performance footage and interviews with Joan Jett, Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz and others close to her. It also explores her battle with Lyme disease and how she came out on top of something that she thought would possibly kill her.

You can catch the film at Nitehawk this Friday, with director Sini Anderson, director of photography Jennie Jeddry and editor Bo Mehrad in person for a Q&A at the 7:30 p.m. and 9:55 p.m. screenings. Or check out these other films we’re Reel Psyched to see this Thanksgiving week.

Caught in the Web

The Internet can be a great place for your personal life to go public whether you wish it to or not. In Chen Kaige’s latest film a woman who just learned of a terminal illness gets on a bus and is recorded being rude to an elderly lady on video. The video is then placed online and her personal information is leaked with it, going viral, and endangering her and the people around her.

Spike Lee’s remake of the Park Chan-wook thriller (a Korean film based on a Japanese manga) of the same name.  A man is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement and is suddenly released. He’s only got so much time to find out who kidnapped him and why before things in his life get any messier.
Nitehawk Cinema, 136 Metropolitan Avenue, Williamsburg; $11

Home Alone

Every holiday season you have to watch Home Alone at least twice. It’s an unwritten law.  Years before Macaulay Culkin would portray NYC’s scenester-cum-murderer Michael Alig in Party Monster, he was eight-year-old Kevin, accidentally left home alone by his vacationing family to duke it out with two burglars – one of whom is played by Joe Pesci, who made quite a scene as Tommy in Goodfellas that same year, though he’d never get “made.”
Sunshine Cinema, 143 E Houston St, Lower East Side; Midnight; $13.50

All Day Holiday: Thanksgiving Movies

There’s no list of movies up, but it’s safe to assume you’ll see A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving among this day of Thanksgiving classics. Let the tryptophan do its stuff and escape your family tradition of fighting at the dinner table after the feast, and instead get drunk in the dark while watching movies. Who knows what they have planned – Paul Blart Mall Cop? Grumpy Old Men? Addams Family Values?
Videology, 308 Bedford Ave., Williamsburg; 3 p.m.; Free

Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom

The Great Thinker: Kim Jong Il Propaganda Films

Despite his forced labor camps, medieval prison system, public executions, and restrictions on freedoms of expression, travel, and press… according to Kim Jong Il’s favorite films (his propaganda films) he was a hero, modernizing North Korea, keeping the US out, and revolutionizing the world.
Spectacle Theater, 124 South 3rd St., Williamsburg; Midnight: $5

Home Sweet Home

Part of Spectacle’s Slashg/v/ng weekend, Home Sweet Home was directed by porn veteran Nettie Pena, and features ILSA director Don Edmonds, and fitness guru and Family Channel legend Jake Steinfeld. It’s Thanksgiving and an escaped mental patient tripping on PCP is slashing up the town. As if the Thanksgiving horror genre wasn’t rare and weird enough, this movie really takes it to another level of bizarre.

Macbeth (Directed by Roman Polanski)

Financed by Hugh Hefner, Roman Polanski’s Macbeth was the first movie he made after the murder of his wife Sharon Tate at the hands of the Manson family. He stays very true to the story, while also making one of the most nightmarish, gruesome adaptations.
Anthology Film Archives, 32 Second Ave., East Village; 8:30 p.m.; $10
