Filled with heady outrageousness at the same time it continuously skirts the apparent emptiness in the man wearing those crazy wigs.

A striking tribute to the pioneering spirit, radical queerness and sheer divinity of Divine.

It's a warm, affecting tribute, taking us inside the blessed existence of the person John Waters calls the world's greatest outsider.

[Director Jeffrey] Schwartz has made a film that would impress Divine's biggest fan: himself. It's all about Divine, darling and don't you forget it.

Though it may boil down to your average procession-of-talking-heads template, it's still enlivened by the raucous words from the band of outsiders who supported and launched Divine into the limelight.

It's hard to go wrong with a movie about famed drag queen Divine, and director Jeffrey Schwarz certainly doesn't in "I Am Divine," a serious documentary about this gloriously trashy trailblazer.

Although the story ends sadly (no one should die at age 42), the film itself is not sad, but is instead a celebration of a performer who made the most out of the talents he had.

The film's heart is the chequered relationship Milstead had with his mother, whose shifting regard for her larger-than-life son takes centre stage.

(A)s a celebration of one of the most unique talents in the history of all mediums, this movie does (Divine) more than justice.

In Milstead's brief 42 years there were separations and reunions, stumbles, success and, finally, a real American family, in movies oddly ahead of their time.

This documentary reminds us of Divine's audacious and unique impact on both film and American culture. It's also a great way to celebrate the talented actor who gave us Divine.

A heartfelt, loving homage to its subject, a larger-than-life personality who proved that the traditional roads to fame weren't the only options for a shy, gay Baltimore boy who wanted to be famous.

A viewer could suffer whiplash just from how much [Divine] and pop culture changed in the course of 20 years.

Divine expanded the concept of the drag queen from brash female impersonator into something much larger, more subversive and less gender specific.

Even if this overly respectful movie never goes quite deep enough, it does shows us the man behind the garish eye shadow, the lost boy under the Totie Fields wig.
