Hands down the best queer film of the past ten years. Forget that it was made with iPhones (although that’s so cool), the story of two transladies of the evening on a tear one night in L.A. is wildly authentic, gorgeously shot, and the best movie about friendship since Jerry Schatzberg’s Scarecrow.

Tangerine is a rare kind of film about transgender experiences… It’s also rare in the way its formal elements work in concert with its subject matter. Director Sean Baker shot the film entirely on iPhones, utilizing this cheap technology to create something strikingly cinematic. Tangerine, both in content and in form, is about creating beauty from a position of marginalization and limited means.

This is the usual cinematic trajectory used to create images around transgender women: the cisgender gaze wrests bodily autonomy away from the transgender person. Laurence Anyways and Dallas Buyer’s Club are only two examples, but both show a misunderstanding of how trans women should be represented in an art-house and foreign high-brow binary. For mainstream cinema transgender women simply do not exist. In Tangerine, the characters own the frame and do so because of collaboration.
