Jeffrey Schwarz United States, 2013

Richmond Hill's rating of the film I Am Divine

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.
