  • Rafael Zen's rating of the film Wearing Ties and Red Nails

    I think this is an important portrait on how brazilian media figures handle with the gender identity issue - but something is quite missing. Leaving almost all the debate to be said by pop icons, somehow it never goes really deep into gender questions - it's the pop version of gender debate then. At the end, I'd rather see this kind of film being made than the contrary, but if it could be done better? Hell yeah.
