3.0 out of 5 stars 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.

"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."
Seriously? *shakes his head* It's roller derby! Flashing the panties is a time-honored tradition in derby. By looking at your name I assume that you're in derby and should know better. My wife is in derby as well and I'm positive she'd agree with me on this.

True....These women are sexy...and they want to be sexy...and just like the sport, it's their sexy, as defined by them.
Just been to my first Jam yesterday...hooked now!
Was taken by my friend The Mighty Mighty Bash of London Rocking Rollers!
