A documentary about and around the self-alienated Quentin Crisp, who at 73 years of age moved to New York. He's shown as a figurine more than a person, yet that is what he had reinvented himself to be: a work of art rather than an individual, he repeats himself and his ideas to all who will listen. Sad and interesting.
