The Amazing Truth About Queen Raquela Reviews

    Very poignant and touching movie. Spanned the bridge between fact and fiction very well and Raquela Rios did an excellent job as herself.

    Initially, it seems like this film addresses some trans gender issues, but then the central character of this docu-drama comes across as a stuck up bitch. Not the story's fault, since it is based on actual events, but after the first half hour it goes downhill as a "Meh" documentary.

    Is it fun for a one time fling? Yes. Do I wish to see it again? No.

    As a documentary, I don't think this was really anything special, however, the story is worth knowing.

    an interesting story, but very amateurly done.

    An engaging tale of a Filipino ladyboy with a life's dream to see Paris. Great mockumentary style fits the light tone of the film with a plot that seems to punch above its weight. Touches on plenty of social, economic and queer issues without being over-preaching or pandering. Funny.

    interesting documentary with a little bit of comedy. However, there's no good point and the main character is too ordinary.
