News & Interviews for The Cockettes
Critic Reviews for The Cockettes
Cockettes has the glorious, gaudy benefit of much stock footage of Those Days, featuring all manner of drag queen, bearded lady and lactating hippie.
As Weber and Weissman demonstrate with such insight and celebratory verve, the Cockettes weren't as much about gender, sexual preference or political agitprop as they were simply a triumph of the indomitable human will to rebel, connect and create.
An insightfully cheeky entertainment.
This expert, heartfelt movie establishes them as being as much a part of swingin' San Francisco as the Grateful Dead or the Beats.
Manages to transcend the sex, drugs and show-tunes plot into something far richer.
Audience Reviews for The Cockettes
San Francisco Summer of Love that dare not stay the same recounted by counter-culture drag/drug/dole demi-monde.
