... filmmakers Jennifer Kroot and Bill Weber have captured that zest with a joyous filmmaking style of their own: breezy editing, fun '70s graphics and the use of great archival footage from the city's past. It's all great fun, from beginning to end.
For all his distinguished man-of-letters status, he is warm and winning company.
With candor, humor and poignancy, Kroot's entertaining documentary depicts an artist who continued to seek his bigoted father's approval even as he embraced a life as a proud gay man that his parents could never condone.
A must-see... for those who have been fans of Maupin but might not have known as much about him as they thought.
The [stories] flow from the author's mouth with ease and will hold viewers in rapt attention.
In addition to being a sweet portrait of a local legend, Untold Tales demonstrates that it's possible for privileged white males to rise above poisonous upbringings of racism, sexism, and homophobia.
But as a history lesson it is effective, filling in another piece of queer history puzzle.
Bright and breezy like his writing, this documentary is as much about Armistead Maupin as it is about the LGBT community of his dearly beloved San Francisco.
For anyone mounting an exploration into a particular time - the 1970s - and Maupin's much beloved place - San Francisco - The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin is as good a place as any to start.
There is nothing visually notable or narratively inspired in The Untold Tales of Armistead Maupin.
Heartwarming. Funny. Sad. Vital. This is essential gay history. I'm thankful that this film will help preserve it and turn new generations on to his work.
