A fascinating larger-than-life portrait of its larger-than-life subject, I Am Divine is a beguiling blend of poignancy, humor and glorious excess.

It's surprisingly moving stuff - dressed up with just enough archival outrage to remind you how scandalous Divine once seemed.

The interviewees and even his mother, with whom he was reconciled late in his life, all portray him as a generous and very sweet-natured man.

Despite the sadness, we are reminded of what an influential figure Divine was, and how his very presence continues to bring comfort to others who identify as outsiders.

I Am Divine may not be the blowsy riot you'd expect given Divine's salty screen persona but it tells his story with wit, insight and compassion, revealing a rather sweet and sensitive man underneath that sparkling shell.
