Another trip around a familiar block. Always welcome as a subject - Divine's melding of hilarity, bravado and underlying sensitivity never fails - but marred somewhat by attention deficit editing and creeping digression. Nevertheless Schwarz's documentary work on pop ephemera icons always plays fair with his subjects and that's true enough here with some decent archival work despite the sense of deja vu.
In 1998 Steve Yeagher made a wonderful film called 'Divine Trash' that looked at the careers of John Waters and his leading lady Divine. It was a rich film that dug deep into the Baltimore scene and their shared legacy. Unfortunately this film does not share those traits. The television style biopic production values and superficial commentary and rememberances do no justice to the legend that is Divine. Too bad.
