Gay Pride - Flawless review by JD

Spoiler Alert
09/11/2010

De Niro is not at his best. He plays a cop who has had a stroke as convincingly as Brad Pitt can do foreign accents. It is pathetic. A large part of this film however is about the hysterical or totally miserable life of drag queens. If screaming and scratching transvestites was meant to irritate it succeeded. Some of the self-pitying and self-loathing had a similar effect. There were moments of good drama and the scene depicted on the cover is one of them, where De Niro is learning to sing. There is another film of the same name. I hope that is better.

Something different. - Flawless review by BE

Robert de Niro is very good in parts but outshone by Philip Seymour Hoffman in his role as a very convincing drag queen. A bit claustrophobic as mainly subdued indoor camera work but nevertheless, not a dull moment. It wears well with time and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.
