Entertainment Weekly
First-time writer-director Rodney Evans makes a ballsy leap into historical fantasia, with heartfelt fervor outrunning stray moments of artistic gawkiness.
75
A very good drama about the difficulties of being young, black, and gay. With a bigger budget and a sharper focus, it might have been a great one.
75
New York Post
An intelligent and entertaining exploration of racial and sexual politics that brings alive the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s, and draws parallels with African-American identity crises of today.

The Hollywood Reporter
Fascinating and absorbing tale.
70
Funny, sexy and very cleverly done.

New York Daily News
Evan succeeds in drawing a parallel about the lack of racial and sexual tolerance in both eras, but Perry's inner turmoil is nowhere near as interesting as the lively flashbacks.
50
Fascinating context but awkwardly told.

Chicago Tribune
Ambitious but clumsy, it's a movie to appreciate rather than to be engaged by.
50
Interesting for its historical content.
50
This first dramatic feature by documentarian Evans is an important film but not necessarily a successful one.
