This indulgently puerile waste of time plows ahead with pointless mayhem masquerading as 'art.'

Mad Cowgirl is an underground movie with little sense of grounding, and lots of a multicultural weirdness and inchoate meat metaphors.

Kam Williams

Endlessly entertaining, though not recommended for anyone uncomfortable with soft porn, eroticized violence or graphically-depicted slaughter.

Gregory Weinkauf

Rob Gonsalves

Fiercely personal and unique.

Strange, confusing, disturbing. But you gotta hand it to the director, he creating a low budget but very watchable film. Oh, and what's needed in films… More
