Critic Reviews for Brutal Beauty: Tales of the Rose City Rollers
The scrappy, admiring Brutal Beauty is an energetic personality parade of some of the sport's die-hards.
Mabry makes a convincing case that roller derby is more than just a hobby - it's a chance for the everywoman to develop the alter ego she's always wished she had.
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.
Audience Reviews for Brutal Beauty: Tales of the Rose City Rollers
This is a well-worth seeing documentary. The footage was engaging throughout and the soundtrack well-thought out. The director did a fantastic job of pulling out the passion of each player on and off the track. We get an authentic view of the workings of the girl-powered sport of roller derby and the generation it has touched. Well done.
Excellent look at this intense sport and the amazing women who dedicate themselves to the sport. Realistic and intimate look at some of the players. Fun to watch!
