It's an engrossing peek at an era that now seems as meteoric, crazy and distant as the Roaring Twenties.
The film is full of flamboyant personalities, and they all contribute to the impression that Highberger above all wants to pay tribute to Curtis' brave determination to discover and express his ever-changing identity at all costs.
Slow-starting but ultimately invigorating.
An affectionate biographical documentary.
Highberger's movie is as much a reclamation of cultural territory as it is a bio-pic.
A vibrant, skin-deep flirt, both refined and tawdry, fabulous and skin deep -- probably a comparison Curtis himself would appreciate.
As this entertaining documentary makes clear, the witty, wisecracking, son-of-a-Marine drag queen was an artist in his own right.
Entertaining and fine-looking doc.
Required viewing for all Warholia aficionados and any one with even a passing interest in the counter-culture of a New York City that exists only as a dimming memory in the minds of those lucky enough to have lived there.
An enthusiastic backstage biography of one of Warhol's drag-queen divas, Jackie Curtis.
