Movie Info

Brutal Beauty: Tales Of The Rose City Rollers tells the story of Portland, Oregon's women's roller derby league, the Rose City Rollers. For more than a year and a half, an embedded film crew documented the thrills and spills of derby life. Through unlimited access to team bouts, practices and the private lives of the players, Brutal Beauty puts the viewer on the inside track to this high-contact, and sometimes dangerous, sport. In their own words, the Rose City Rollers tell how roller derby

Documentary about women's roller-derby in Portland, Ore., showcases a talented new director but doesn't disclose its executive producer's ties to the organization, making objectivity suspect.

This is all fine, but it doesn't add up to much. There's no through-story here, just a collection of observations.
