Sarah Lassez (Nowhere, The Blackout, Until the Night) delivers a star-making performance as Therese, an ass-kicking health inspector with a failed marriage, an on-going affair with a creepy televangelist, nymphomania, and an obsession with old kung-fu movies. Further complicating her life is a very questionable relationship with her brother Thierry (James Duval from The Doom Generation and Donnie Darko), a meat importer who may (or may not) have infected her with mad cow disease. Mad Cowgirl is practically impossible to describe—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) as a slimy sex-addicted preacher.
“FIVE STARS. At a time when too many movies are strictly connect-the-dots simple, Mad Cowgirl is a kick in the shins and a scream in the ear to the enervated indie audience… It is a triumph of avant-garde cinema and a true work of cinematic art.” Film Threat
