Critics Consensus

Glen or Glenda? remains an interesting artifact from one of Hollywood's more colorful careers -- albeit not one that holds up particularly well as a movie.

Audience Reviews for Glen or Glenda?

  • May 26, 2014
    A documentary, of sorts, about a closeted transvestite named Glen who struggles over whether to tell his secret to his fiancée. The story is interrupted by a bizarre 14-minute dream sequence with bondage and the Devil, and numerous incomprehensible bits with omniscient "scientist" Bela Lugosi yelling "pull the string"! It's terrible, and it's great, so the rating averages out. A must-see for adventurous viewers, but those with more conventional tastes will find its lack of plot and structure to be torture.

    A complete waste of time and stands as one of the worst films ever made, but Ed Wood's films are just silly enough to do that.

    I simply love Ed Wood for his work, his unique style and weird ideas always surprise his audience. In this debut film, Ed Wood explored touchy subjects like Transvestism and Sexuality which would be quite controversial at the time. Bela Lugosi as the scientist was just perfect. As much as I want to say nice things about this film, I simply just cannot do so. it's a Z-movie, the editing was horrible, acting was disgusting, but it's fun and hilarious to watch though. The dialogues did not make any sense at all... but I suppose that's the charm of it. If you like kitsch then this would be a good pass time option.

    With awful performances and ludicrous dialogue, this atrocious movie has a lot of heart but sadly no brains, and so it is repetitious, full of nonsensical stock footage and unintentionally surrealistic without making much sense as a narrative whatsoever.
