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 saved their souls. -- (C) Cinema Purgatorio

It's a lot of fun, but it's not the whole story.

The scrappy, admiring Brutal Beauty is an energetic personality parade of some of the sport's die-hards.

September 30, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

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.

September 30, 2010 | Full Review…

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.
