Critic Reviews for The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye
This edgy documentary manages to tell an affecting love story even as it ventures into the cultish, transgressive world of underground music.
The film takes the viewer not just into the world of Genesis and Lady Jaye, but somehow, as a true ballad should, into their hearts.
How often do we tell our lovers that we feel at one with them, that we want to emulate their best qualities? Here we see an amazing couple who take that ego-obliterating infatuation to its logical conclusion.
A frustrating if fitfully fascinating documentary about the singer, writer and performance artist known as Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and his wife, Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge.
This is a manic, overmedicated, and remembered elegy. It's also private, personal, and obscure, a ballad meant more for its subjects' eyes and ears than ours.
Audience Reviews for The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye
I admit that in part, my lower rating is attributable to the fact that I don't know really what the two ladies were out to express. The documentary flounders by not rooting us in the cultural reaction to their work and takes up far too much time showing footage of them goofing around for the sake of expression.
