An amazing insirational life in a brave film,
This review is from: The Naked Civil Servant  [DVD] (DVD)
When I first saw this film I was amazed and magnetised. Over the years Quentin's life has inspired so many people homosexual and heterosexual, transgendered and non-transgendered (Does anyone remember Sting's song "An Englishman in New York"?).
The film follows pretty closely Quentin's autobiography of the same name. There are a couple of bits that deviate from his book but it doesn't detract from what a wonderful film it is. Quentin himself, apart from disagreeing with a minor scene, was very complementary about the film.
See it. It's a brave, sincerely made film that made Quentin Crisp, in his own words, a stately homo.
