  1. panagiotatos's rating of the film The Secrets of Burlesque

    4/10, everybody can do burlesque, no matter the age, the size, the gender. according to this documentary. The question is what lies behind this notion and if Lili St. Cyr were in the business today, what would have been people's reaction to her act. But maybe it is me being a sexist pig...

  2. Funda Can Çuvalcı's rating of the film The Secrets of Burlesque

    The subject is very interesting. Burlesque is about "challenging cultural ideals and gender ideals, blowing the boundaries (...) appreciating all the differences between people (...) It is not just striptease, it is more than that". However, the editing of the film could be more captivating avoiding the repetitions.

  4. JPDucharne's rating of the film The Secrets of Burlesque

    A beautiful portrait of burlesque as a catalyst for freedom, inclusiveness and not taking life too seriously.

  5. MARION's rating of the film The Secrets of Burlesque

    Fascinating subject dull documentary. Ideally should have been edited into 30 mins of wham, bam thankyou mam. Repetitive and lacking in any kind of narrative progression.
