Critic Reviews for The Queen of Ireland

All Critics (9)

Intimate yet wide-ranging.

December 4, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The filmmaking is workmanlike, but many of the ideas explored are sharp: drag queens like Panti, one observer notes, take the fear of effeminacy and turn it into a strength that is celebrated.

Unfortunately Conor Horgan's feature length documentary about Ireland's most influential drag queen lacks sparkle, wit and bite - precisely some of the attributes Panti, and other great drag artists, so embody.

[A] powerful documentary.

September 9, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

As insightful as it is colourful, the lively documentary The Queen Of Ireland charts the extraordinary career to date of Irish performance artist Rory O'Neill.

September 8, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

This is an engaging documentary about a significant moment in recent history, told via one of the larger-than-life people who helped make it happen.
