Mad Cowgirl

"Theaters showing Mad Cowgirl should install seatbelts, because audiences are in for the ultimate wild ride" - Film Threat
"There will not be another movie this year like Mad Cowgirl" - Village Voice

Sarah Lassez stars as Therese, a meat inspector with a failed marriage, a sexually charged relationship with her brother, a fixation on an aging televangelist (Koenig), a brain tumor, quite possibly mad cow disease, and the growing conviction that she must kill the Ten Tigers From Kwangtung and become the Girl With The Thunderbolt Kick.

Don't even try to categorize Gregory Hatanaka's Mad Cowgirl. You will fail, and fail miserably. As its creator itself puts it "Mad Cowgirl is practically impossible to describe, but it's a Narrative - Experimental - Art - Comedy - Horror - Tragedy - Kung Fu epic that features multiple languages, a little hardcore porn, a flying guillotine, the old ultraviolence and Walter Koenig (Cmdr. Pavel Chekov from Star Trek) as a slimy sex-addicted preacher. Great Scott!"

Transgressive, hilarious, horrifying and loaded with loving shots of raw, bloody beef, you have never seen a film quite like Mad Cowgirl quite simply because there has never been a film like Mad Cowgirl. An experience not to be missed. - Todd Brown
