Overall, this is a solid if scattershot primer on a scene that seems here to stay.
Alison Grist's documentary is a history of the theatrical art of burlesque.
Peeping behind the curtain seems a little inappropriate in the world of Burlesque, but this is a charming introduction the art form.
A startlingly sycophantic documentary about the art of stripping that is produced by its central subject.
It's a bit of a promo-showreel for IB's live show, but cheerfully entertaining nonetheless.
Despite some overly long performance footage, it's an interesting and entertaining look at a world most barely know.
That Blaize is also the producer might explain the absence of any dissenting voices in a work which seems happy to act as a cheerleader for her career.
Grist's attempts to dissect the subject actually take away its sparkle, scarcely doing justice to the talents featured, and making even Blaize's most elaborate routines feel rather flat and unerotic.
This perfectly pleasant celebration of burlesque would look better as a late-night documentary on E4; on the big screen its impact feels rather lost.
Immodesty Blaize goes behind the tassels and sequins to discover the appeal and comes to the far-from-earth-shattering conclusion that it's all about harmless fantasy.
Purportedly offering a slice of cultural history, this documentary is basically a big plug for fancy-schmancy "neo-burlesque" stripper Immodesty Blaize. Shameless stuff and about as sexy as a poke in the groin with a blunt stick.
A whole film of burlesque dancers doing burlesque dancing and talking about burlesque dancing. How can it possibly fail?
