Gigi is an invaluable role model to young trans people in her ferocious courage and undeniable fabulousness, but the film is little more than a celebration of that.
An intimate and engaging exploration of gender dynamics and the curious, uniquely 21st-century alchemy of YouTube stardom.
Gigi's exuberant presence makes the picture a complete joy from beginning to end, as Kopple seamlessly weaves her own documentation of her subject's journey with footage from Gigi's videos.
To a great extent "This Is Everything" seems to follow an agenda set by them in tandem with the movie's subject, which is largely commendable in its pitch for acceptance and against bigotry.
For all that the Gigi Gorgeous videos provide, Kopple's experienced touch adds depth and a clear narrative.
This glossy doc uncovers very little conflict or depth in a personality more colorful than it is interesting, at least as presented here.
As for Gigi, she is quite an experience unto herself, and will more than hold your attention for the 90 minutes she is on screen.
What sets the movie apart is Gigi herself, for whom there is no real divide between private life and public performance
Docu follows young internet star's gender transition.
Just as Lazzarato is set loose to live her dream as Tawny Kitaen 2.0, Kopple is liberated from the hermetic self-shot YouTube footage, and the technological story is seamlessly entwined in the personal one.
By recording [Gigi's transition], sometimes in gory detail, This Is Everything opens a window onto the trans experience that engenders empathy and understanding.
She is her own dream come true-a vision of manmade loveliness-but is that all there is, to warrant a Barbara Kopple doc?
