Critic Reviews for Wonder Women! The Untold Story Of American Superheroines
A brief, energetic, and powerful documentary; Wonder Women focused on the popular comic book character, but more broadly it focused on women in roles of action heroines.
...a great consciousness-raising tool (how 1970s is that?) and a fun celebration for fans of Wonder Woman and her sisters in spandex.
Should prove irresistible to comic-book fans and pop-culture mavens, even if it is misleadingly selective as it argues that young girls mostly lack strong women role models in popular entertainment.
Audience Reviews for Wonder Women! The Untold Story Of American Superheroines
Missed seeing this at the 2013 Cleveland International Film Fest, but shortly after, found it playing on Independent Lens on PBS. Perhaps it was a shortened version that I saw. It briefly explores some other heroic female tv characters, but 85-90% of it focuses on Wonder Woman. This doc reveals her strong comic book roots, years of domesticated tales, the inspiration the character provided to the feminist movement, her return as a powerful role model with feminine values in the hit '70s tv show, and the scarcity of female superheroines at the movies in a market with a surplus of superheroes, but conceivably with many bias still providing roadblocks. The interviewees are all quite riveting and the graphics help the story along very well.
