“Katrina del Mar’s 27 minute GANG GIRLS 2000 makes a powerful companion piece; a fiction about girl gangs (the Ponies, Glitter Girls), it depicts their antics (mostly fighting and kissing each other) by mixing black and white with color and clear close ups with fuzzier shots, edited with an excellent sense of rhythm and the erotic possibilities of brief close up images of a whip or a pair of lips. It’s light and humorous, a fantasy that moves from violence to sex rather than vice versa, drawing its energy not from single objects or figures but from connections between editing, speech rhythms, and character and camera movement.”- The Chicago Reader
