“…Rock n Roll is back in a big way. So why can’t indie films get it right? Lucky for us, there are directors whose work is truly “underground,” far exceeding Indiewood in style, sexiness, adrenaline, humor and truth. Take GANG GIRLS 2000, by Katrina del Mar, the story of the war between “the Sluts” and “the Glitter Girls.” This movie has dialogue that would make Russ Meyer blush. “That’s a cute trick, little trick baby, but you glitter bitches are gonna eat my red burning bush before I’m through, [Cherry, I’ll cut] you!” …Del Mar, known for her amazing photographs of Lower East Side freaks and rockers, builds on decades of traditional James Dean archetypes and comes out with a girl rebel vision that is truly unique..” – Sarah Jacobson, IFC Rant : a Publication of the Independent Film Channel
