Storyline

Filmmaker Colin Rothbart pulls off the wigs, wipes off the mascara to unveil the real people behind the much hyped and talked about East London's alternative drag scene. Overeating, gender dysphoria, egos, excess. Following in the tradition of Paris Is Burning and The Cockettes, and DRESSED AS A GIRL is so much more than show-stopping performances. Filmed over five years, the film covers not only the rise and fall of this hugely popular gay club scene but also offers some personal, emotionally honest portraits of six individuals at the heart it. Fundamentally it's about the nature of friendship, life and even survival against the odds, universal themes that everyone can relate to. Written by Anonymous

I think I must have seen a completely different movie from all of the other reviewers as this is quite possibly the worst movie I've ever seen

How on earth you could film it over a period of six years and end up with such a rambling, incoherent series of snapshots is quite beyond me.

Lest anyone reading this think it is from some rabid homophobe let me state that I am a gay man, I have lived in the East End, I do consider drag (can be) an art form and I wholeheartedly encourage the human race to seek out alternative lifestyles BUT this just depicts the characters as shallow, self-centered and utterly narcissistic
