A surprising and sad glimpse into an unusual and heretofore largely unknown subculture, but one that feels frustratingly aimless.
| Original Score: C
Buffalo Girls hews close to the experience at hand, which sometimes feels a little too much like a normal leading-up-to-the-big-game Undefeated-style sports doc.
A story that, though sickly fascinating, is as crudely rendered as its images.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
It's difficult to say if Kellstein's approach to these difficult cultural dilemmas is meant to leave the audience to decide for themselves or if he can't figure it out either.
Tthe burning question of child safety and long-term physical effects of fists-and-feet Muay Thai boxing is all but absent.
Stam, Pet and their families don't seem to think much about what they're doing. Neither does Buffalo Girls.
The audience has been delighted to spend some time with a couple of remarkable young ladies.
| Original Score: 8/10
Todd Kellstein doesn't allow you to entirely indulge convenient (though understandable and perhaps irresistible) armchair outrage.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Kellstein gives viewers more or less the same show that the fans and gamblers get.
| Original Score: B-
