Critics reviews

It’s a pleasure to watch Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil now, the normal courtroom drama trappings subsumed in an exploration of the gay community of Savannah, Georgia, standing as a tribute to the dynamic presence, humor, and humanity of the late Lady Chablis.

[The black drag queen] clearly isn’t a film actor because her theatricality is firmly grounded in stage presence. But Eastwood’s decision not only to use her but to periodically let her run away with the movie — apart from Spacey, she gives the richest star performance — is one of his gutsiest moves, and it pays off. (It’s also highly indicative of what makes this movie much more modern than The Rainmaker.)
