Movie Info

Burlesque star Immodesty Blaize leads this behind-the-scenes tour of the niche world of old-school striptease - a growing subculture in many places. Mixing footage of stunning live performances with one-on-one interviews with performers and other fixtures on the scene, the documentary explores why this retro artform is taking off in a major way.

  • Alison Grist's documentary is a history of the theatrical art of burlesque.

  • Overall, this is a solid if scattershot primer on a scene that seems here to stay.

  • 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.

    Jan 22, 2010
  • 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.
