It's an engrossing peek at an era that now seems as meteoric, crazy and distant as the Roaring Twenties.

The film is full of flamboyant personalities, and they all contribute to the impression that Highberger above all wants to pay tribute to Curtis' brave determination to discover and express his ever-changing identity at all costs.

Highberger's movie is as much a reclamation of cultural territory as it is a bio-pic.

The most resonant parts of the movie are, oddly, the interviews with his fellow glam bohemians.

There are several admiring -- and often hilarious -- interviews with an astounding array of Curtis' surviving pals.
