Feel good, persevering, so important, well done
10 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you are into health—physical, psychic and emotional—being yourself, loving yourself regardless of what the mainstream, misogynistic patriarchy may have to say about your differences from that norm, see this film. Be inspired by Buck Angel's perseverance and ability to remain grateful and positive about his life's calling; which also we can see becomes fluid throughout the documentary. Buck is a survivor and is driven in a way that is true to the best of his abilities.

Buck encourages us to keep learning. To expand from the rigidity of binaries that enslave us in so many ways, but specifically gender fluidity. He reveals through his experience that the world is more complex than we have been conditioned to believe or know for ourselves unless we try.

This film is so well done, from the pacing, the extensive, thorough and beautiful footage, and the control that the 'subject' Buck has over how he is represented is artistic and brilliant. Best piece of cinema I have seen in over a year.
