    A variety of intriguing elements and a couple of nice scenes. Obviously an achievement structurally and compositionally. But ultimately annoying and unsatisfying as a film. (Watched on the big screen at the Elmwood in Berkeley).

    On the one hand cinematically impressive in so many ways. On the other hand, it seems terrible to say it but I just didn’t like it.

    So great to see all the reactions here. It is an amazing film. Re-discovering it and helping facilitate the restoration and re-release is one of my proudest achievements as an archivist and queer film historian. In addition to being included on the Kino Lorber Blu-ray of The Queen, it is available to watch via Kanopy and also on VimeoOnDemand at this link (available worldwide): vimeo.com/ondemand/queensatheart
