The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

Doc­u­men­tary on the hid­den world of Ir­ish roller derby. If you’re ex­pect­ing sis­ter­hood on wheels or the ir­re­sistible clout of a sport­ing un­der­dog nar­ra­tive, Revo­lu­tions may un­nerve slightly. There is a fe­roc­ity about roller derby, a fe­roc­ity that of­ten ex­tends off the tracks. Laura McGann spent five years on the project, and it shows. This is the hip, lively, ami­able bruiser of a film the sport de­serves. Club, IFI, Dublin, 86 min
