  • This film does not pander. Rather, it demands that the viewer rise to the occasion.

  • While affirming the dignity of its subjects, "Mala Mala" shows there's little glamour attached to the pursuit of selfhood.

  • The outcome of this campaign gives the film a heroic arc, and yet amid all the images of celebration and joyful physical abandon the most lingering images are the ones depicting daily routines.

  • Beginning as a colorful documentary about the Puerto Rican transgender community... Mala Mala slowly morphs into a celebration of solidarity and collective activism without ever losing sight of its likable protagonists.

  • Mala Mala depicts its subjects with an uncommon degree of empathy and understanding, not to mention glamor.

  • An edit away from perfection, Mala Mala is an inclusive, inspiring and utterly unflinching treatment of gender expression.

Audience Reviews for Mala Mala

  • Apr 02, 2018
    The fact that this film talks about transsexuals and drag queens as if they all belonged in the same group is not only counterproductive in terms of information but exposes its lack of focus, which is also evident in the unnecessarily large amount of characters that are presented.
