Critic Reviews for Venus Boyz
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.
Unfortunately, Baur doesn't seem to have either a thesis or an editor as she lets each segment meander without purpose.
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.
[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.
Audience Reviews for Venus Boyz
great docu about drag-kings. yes, girls who perform shows dressed as men. most are very convincing even tho they are also beautiful women in daily life.
