A kind of postmodern, grown-up fairytale: a Cinderella story for the reality-TV age.
Raquela Rios is so passionately alive her film gets away with an open ending -- as it has everything else.
The amazing truth about Queen Raquela is that she's constructed from clichés.
It's like being trapped in a roomful of teenage girls for 80 minutes.
Raquela's travel sequences are poorly structured, and detract from the film's most satisfying moments.
That hyperbolic title refers to Raquela's transsexual status, but otherwise, there's nothing all that amazing about this very specialized-interest, sometimes engaging but often frustrating faux-documentary.
Rios is the glue that holds Johannesson's neither-fish-nor-fowl film together:
It's funny, wry, edgy and occasionally insightful -- but it's not a documentary.
As fabulous, scraggly, tough-minded, star-eyed and conflicted as the queen it documents.
