The Legend of Leigh Bowery replaces the man within the queer myth to the extent that when it's over, Bowery seems less a freakish terror than the shrewd art-world transgressive he was.
As tributes go, The Legend of Leigh Bowery is a saucy eye-opener.
Without pushing too hard, the film makes a case for Bowery as a significant artistic catalyst blazing a glittery trail at the intersection of fashion, pop music and surrealist performance.
Atlas's remarkable moving-picture- book tribute to Bowery.
...a suitable tribute to Bowery, never shying away from the excessiveness and eccentricities that defined Bowery and his art and making a stand for why he was so important in the queer world.
Boy George seems to be the only person genuinely inspired today to pick up Bowery's fashion torch, but if is that something anybody wants?
A mesmerizing, beautifully made documentary.
Put on your most frightening wig, and enjoy the show.
You may find the film as outrageous as it is outlandish, and Bowery would have taken that as a compliment.
An interesting doc, if only because it serves to introduce the work of a gifted, unique artist to those of us who have found little good to say about the 1980s and the excesses they produced.
More hagiography than critique, smoothing out Bowery's rough edges to paint him as an irrepressibly charming svengali.
