Critic Reviews for Mad Cowgirl
This indulgently puerile waste of time plows ahead with pointless mayhem masquerading as 'art.'
It gives screenwriter-director Gregory Hatanaka an excuse for a lot of scene jumping -- and a chance to make the case for adopting a vegan diet.
There's a lot happening here, perhaps too much.
Mad Cowgirl is an underground movie with little sense of grounding, and lots of a multicultural weirdness and inchoate meat metaphors.
It's safe to say there will not be another movie this year like Mad Cowgirl. Whether that's a good or bad thing depends on your tolerance for copious bloodletting, hardcore pornography, and C-SPAN.
Audience Reviews for Mad Cowgirl
Yeah, so this film is ca-ray-zy! We're talking Brad Dourif in The Exorcist 3 crazy. That's a high level of crazy right there. This is a real throwback to the Exploitation and Martial Arts films of the '70s. There's even a Flying Guillotine sighting.. Now, this isn't a gore fest. So if that's what you're expecting, you'll be disappointed. Like I am every time I see a movie with Kate Beckinsale where she doesn't get naked. There's quite a bit of blood, but that doesn't come until the final reel. So, in closing. This film is a definite recommendation, especially if you miss the good 'ole Grind-house days. Plus, how many other films do you get to see a preacher's "O" face.
Strange, confusing, disturbing. But you gotta hand it to the director, he creating a low budget but very watchable film. Oh, and what's needed in films these days: originality. It's low budget, but understandably so, as it is something you won't see out of "Hollywood", which is why we should have actual independent films. Anyway, it's done with competence and although I was confused and disturbed, I still enjoyed and appreciated it.
This movie really stands out from all the rest that screened in San Francisco. Enough buzz to gain a special third screening! My husband and I were stunned when we saw it. It's was such a refreshing experience! It totally shakes your mind as the movie leads to more sweet madness and hilarious absurdity for Therese (played with such bravery by Sarah Lassez). And, despite its novelty, it's a well-acted and, surprisingly, dramatically-driven movie, too! When we thought it was all over, the last part of the movie totally pays off! Whether it's a statement of our current socio-political culture or our fascination of all things entertainment, it's just riveting. A food for thought, perhaps? One thing for sure, this movie totally rocks!
