Good documentary poorly packaged
, November 21, 2009
This review is from: Blood on the Flat Track (DVD)
Despite the hideous 70's era porn packaging, Blood on the Flat Track is a fun documentary about the Seattle Roller Derby scene. It is a movie about dedication, athleticism, and the inspirational can-do attitude of a group of talented hard-working women.
It is unfortunate that it is being described as a "sexy" documentary, because selling it that way does a huge disservice to the film and to the women depicted in it.
Modern roller derby is the only sport I can think of where the athletes themselves make the decisions, book and run the events, and compete in them. It is a real shame that people think the only way to market kick-ass women is by showing them flashing their panties on the box cover.
