I saw this film tonight.
2 May 2017 | by philipottenbriteSee all my reviews

Susanne Bartsch is a living breathing work of art. Brilliant, driven and wonderfully grounded she has done a great thing in our time; she's influenced. While I was becoming absorbed in this documentary I was tipping my hat to Paris Is Burning and hoping it wasn't going to simply follow the map of that groundbreaker. But Alex and Anthony are smarter than me and they recognized the nugget that was most interesting to explore. Family. Not that Paris Is Burning wasn't about the sociology of family but, this film is about the very pure way our families influence where we go, whether they are Susanne and David's son or the entire club kid population. And full disclosure. By the end of the documentary two of my gay sons, Jose and Hector Xtravaganza appear before their dad's eyes and demonstrate how extraordinarily inventive the movers and shakers of the underground are. It's what Alex and Anthony have done so brilliantly in their film.
