Movie Info

This intimate look into the real world of drag kings -- women exploring their masculinity -- crosses continents, traveling through drag king nightclubs from New York to London. Through interviews and on-stage performances, every subject reveals a different reason for choosing the gender they have. The film is less a critique than an exploration of a world that is increasingly becoming mainstream, as the featured protagonists question exactly how gender works, and should work, in modern society.

Critic Reviews for Venus Boyz

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (3)

  • Although Ms. Baur's meandering style betrays her inexperience as a documentary filmmaker, she nonetheless treats her subjects with compassion and dignity and avoids exploiting or vilifying her subjects.

    January 8, 2004 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • Illuminating.

    November 6, 2003 | Rating: 3/5
  • It's not uninteresting, but so much footage is given over to earnest discussion of sexual politics that the overall effect is like sitting through a semester's worth of transgender studies.

    August 21, 2003 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • [Baur] has clearly earned the trust and respect of her subjects, the first qualification for any responsible documentarist, and they have repaid her with an intimate glimpse into their singular lives.

    August 21, 2003 | Rating: 3/5
  • Though it sometimes errs on the side of artiness, the film offers considerable illumination on the lives of those who live and thrive along sexuality's margins.

    August 21, 2003 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • Earnestly -- if not altogether adroitly -- examines masculinity as a performance, demonstrating that biology is not destiny.
