Critic Reviews for To Die Like A Man
The praise for this static, overlong, stagebound work is a mystery to me.
[Refuses] to soften the harsher personal truths faced by aging professional salesmen of erotic fantasy.
A mysterious, fabulously sad fable about the final months of a fado-singing, pooch-pampering drag diva.
It fulfills the promise of its title with hard-hitting compassion and a crystal-clear sense of grace.
Audience Reviews for To Die Like A Man
TO DIE LIKE A MAN is a truly stunning and remarkable film. Sad, flamboyant, tortuous, and celebratory. This amazing film directed by Joao Pedro Rodrigues surprises at every turn with its raw capature of humanity. The plight of man and our complexity is in every frame of this film. Stunned is my only reaction. And there is one staggering moment when the characters all sit still in a forest, look up a the sky, the frame turns red, and Baby Dee sings CALVARY for 4 minutes on the soundtrack. One of the greatest uses of a song since Eastwood used the FIRST TIME EVER I SAW HIS FACE in PLAY MISTY FOR ME. But this is even better because the moment is part of a true whole that explores the human condition in all its coplexity while remaining totally cinematic.
A pre-op transsexual drag queen lives with a suicidal junkie. CORRECTION TO MY EARLIER REVIEW: This movie should get an "incomplete" rating from me, since I watched a flawed version via Netflix streaming. The dtreaming version is missing the audio track; I assumed that this was an experimental gimmick by the director, but in fact it was just a technical error.
Sublime tale of a drag queen whose life is consumed with caring for her junkie boyfriend, who wants her to become a woman. Rodrigues directs with long, fluid takes & vibrant color filters that create a singular and oddly enrapturing atmosphere.At its heart it's a celebration of humanity, a probing exploration of self-identity and image, of personal desires vs. expectations, striking a note that is so very, very true.
