    It's been about six years, six long years since I saw this for the first time. I remember crying throughout those last 10 minutes and the credits too, something I think was a first for a film to do to me. It was devastating, an incredibly devastating picture of the harsh realities of America crushing an idealist, a woman stuck in her own happy little musical world. And six years later it still hurts like a motherfucker, even more now…

    The beauty of older queer cinema, particularly the more avant-garde-leaning, is that most of these films totally embrace queerness and defy normality, defy the basics of cinema to create something utterly unique to the filmmaker’s experience. And this lil chaotic beauty of a motion picture is definitely a great example. A descent into genderfuck chaos only to return from the dead, because the party won’t die as long as our fun doesn’t.
