Not yet a woman
As the sixth and final season of “Girls” opens, Hannah (Lena Dunham) has been published in the New York Times and landed a cushy assignment covering a surf camp in the Hamptons. But any thought that our “girl” is ready to be a “woman” is dashed by the end of the premiere, in which she has slept with her camp instructor and insisted that TV’s Gidget was a Jew. You decide which is a bigger indiscretion. Dunham, who co-wrote the episode, again insists on getting naked, a stunt that’s gotten old, as has this once ground-breaking series.

Rock ’n’ roll will never die
Even non-fans of big-hair rock will flick their lighters for “Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis,” a documentary about the band that was on stage at a Paris nightclub when it was attacked by terrorists in a November 2015 massacre. Director Colin Hanks interviews the musicians with great sensitivity, taking them through their roots, rise and return to France after escaping with their lives. Bono and the Edge lend gravitas to the proceedings.

Terror from above
The first time I watched “Tower,” a documentary about the 1966 shootings that terrorized the University of Texas, the animation that dominates the first half threw me. Why use cartoons and voice-over actors when the real facts and footage are so powerful? Then I gave it another chance. While I still find that testimony from survivors and actual news footage resonate the most, director Keith Maitland deserves credit for taking a novel approach to a story that may be foreign to younger viewers.
