Movie Info

It is surprising to note what doesn't change when the story of Dickens's novel Oliver Twist moves from the criminal underground of 19th-century London to the world of American gays in the 1990s. In this movie, Lee (Keivyn McNeill Graves) is a homeless young orphan boy who gets taken into the lives of a group of colorful, decadent men. Their friendships and jealousies, as well as their disagreements about Lee's upbringing, carry the familiar story along. Billy Porter's performance as Shiniqua, a feisty street-hardened drag queen, stands out.

Critic Reviews for Twisted

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (2)

  • Overacted, underwritten, murky (some scenes appear to have been filmed by candelight), and essentially implausible, it succeeds only in churning up an atmosphere of ghoulish sentimentality.

    May 20, 2003 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Donsky, who gives his cast the confidence to show considerable emotion, clearly understands that he is working with lurid material, and he plays against it, seemingly as inspired by Dickens as by the silent cinema...

    Aug 15, 2002 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Donsky brings little to his characters, and his threadbare story lacks any of the moral purpose that allows Dickens's tale to transcend its own almost unbearable cruelty.

    Apr 9, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Donsky, whose background is in the theatre, gives the film a solid structure, reveals a stylist's eye, and draws lively performances from a uniformly colorful cast.
