Critic Reviews for Pageant
Pageant sorely misses the socioeconomic context of Paris Is Burning, which took seven years to complete. When one of the film's subjects indeed becomes Miss Gay America 2009, Davis and Halpern-Fingerhut's camera has long since stopped rolling.
This classicism is not without its charm, and it's touching, in a goofy sort of way, to see how seriously everyone takes it.
Audience Reviews for Pageant
Illuminating -- not just the kitsch one might expect. A worthwhile exploration of the people who compete in drag beauty contests.
Pretty interesting and a very casual documentary.
