Superhero and fantasy comics often depict women in gratuitous sexy poses, sprinkled in manic pixie dream girl fairy dust. However, the characters in Rat Queens, despite being created by two men, have agency—they are queer, diverse, and weird. Outcasts or not, they fight the good fight, beat up “the bad guys” and sometimes slay the dragon, or at least come to an understanding. Nadler’s documentary actively contends with the idea that we are all composite creations of our mistakes and our accomplishments.

At age 88, Yayoi Kusama is one of the world’s most successful living artists and one of the top-selling female artists in history. For those unfamiliar with her prolific body of work, her gargantuan polka dot paintings, phallic soft sculptures, and nude performance anti-war protests cleverly straddle pop art and the avant-garde.
