What are people saying?

  • José Neves's rating of the film The Devil Queen

    I really like the environments and creatures/figures of this film, a kind of iconic repository of a social externality, of its most striking characters, with a strong deviation through a camp-kitsch universe. In a scene, the torture of the whore by the transvestites, its staging approaches the synthetic absolute that was John Waters seminal flicks, the rest is mainly the gesture and not its achievement.
