4.0 out of 5 stars a movie everybody should see, 10 Oct 2009
This review is from: Paris Is Burning [DVD] (DVD)
a classic movie , a must for any gay men or simply for anybody curious to see how people were leaving in the poor areas of new york and how they were able to reinvent themselves in order to escape from 3 of the worst nightmares of wasp america..being gay being black and being poor.the glamourisation and the efforts put together by these people in order to live the dream or simply enjoying the moment or escaping from dreadful family situations is still inspiring 20 years after this was filmed.in case anybody has seen strictly ballroom by baz luhrmann ( moulin rouge ,romeo and juliet )please remember this came first.and for the madonna fans do notice that the vogue movements the posing and all the rest was in a certain way stolen from these people...
enjoyable ,lively, full of sense of humour and in some moments deeply touching...as relevant today as it was 20 years ago.
