3.5 / Such an awesome queer cinema gem that's currently finding a second wind with a different generation. Hot sex scenes, solid jokes, great style. There's not a member of this crew and cast who hasn't gone onto enjoy a really fruitful career. Love, love, love Sarah Schulman's cameo parodying the archivists at the Lesbian Herstory Archives in Brooklyn. Too real.
Overall, I wasn't very impressed with this mockumentary film, but I must say that Cheryl Dunye's performance is engaging. I can partially see where she was going with this, and I like her train of thought. I just don't think her execution matched her potential, but this was probably due to their budget. Lastly, I must add that Cheryl is so absolutely, downright sexy in this film! I was totally jealous of Guinevere...
