A great documentary about american culture, 22 July 2002
Author: Vern from Seattle, USA

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This picture is not so much about roller derby as it is about one particular dude who wants to quit his job at the factory to do roller derby. You don't really get an idea whether he really has potential to make it or whether he is completely deluded. He is an interesting dude especially when you find out about halfway through that he cheats on his wife with as many people as possible. This is a very funny and sad documentary. It is not as polished as say a Maysles brothers picture, but it is definitely worth seeking out, unless you hate good movies, in which case rent the remake of rollerball instead, chump.
