Benstock's sideways look at the world of alternative fashion is funny, fabulous and fittingly batty.

The gay abandon of the OTT event is covered extensively, to the point where one begins to feel rather wallflower-ish, like being the only one at the party not taking drugs.

As a cherishable example of alternative British culture, it makes you wonder why this isn't the orthodoxy while the rest of the rubbish that sometimes passes for Anglo-Saxon fun and entertainment is demoted to the counterculture.

Jes Benstock's documentary is a big glittery hug of a celebration.

The film doesn't go deep on politics, but Logan's gregarious presence provides plentiful pleasures in this heartfelt homage to a warm, wily art-world one-off.

Like Logan's work, it's entertaining while also making an important point.

Impressively directed and nicely structured, this is an engaging and enjoyable documentary that serves as an affectionate celebration of one of Britain's most colourful characters.

I enjoyed the film, but I cannot describe the lengths I'd go to or the excuses I'd offer to avoid attending one of these entertainments.

Benstock's film is affectionate, indulgent and clearly in love with its subject...

London Evening Standard
November 11, 2011
It's a real celebration of camp British eccentricity, and it refutes Logan's assertion that the world has gone totally grey.
