"Robert Kaylor's 1971 documentary Derby is a quintessential movie about the American dream," writes Michael Joshua Rowin for Artforum. "The film centers on a young factory worker, Michael Robert Snell, and his pursuit of stardom on the professional roller derby circuit, but due to the proclivities of its eccentric subject — a handsome, 23-year-old husband and father of two who has not outgrown his wild adolescence — Derby is also a movie about harsh American realities. Since we never know whether Snell makes it, Kaylor's movie emphasizes the process of personal transformation rather than the goal of that transformation, and in so doing confronts the viewer with the sadness of a reinvention more deluded than courageous." »
