Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The gay abandon of the OTT event is covered extensively, to the point where one begins to feel rather wallflower-ish, like being the only one at the party not taking drugs."
‑ Simon Foster, Screen-Space
"I enjoyed the film, but I cannot describe the lengths I'd go to or the excuses I'd offer to avoid attending one of these entertainments."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"Benstock's film is affectionate, indulgent and clearly in love with its subject..."
‑ Xan Brooks, Guardian
"Like Logan's work, it's entertaining while also making an important point."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Simply becomes a series of talking heads like Ruby Wax, interspersed with animated sequences and boring meetings."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Post
"It's a real celebration of camp British eccentricity, and it refutes Logan's assertion that the world has gone totally grey."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"How absolutely bloody marvellous."
‑ Christopher Neilan, Little White Lies
"The film doesn't go deep on politics, but Logan's gregarious presence provides plentiful pleasures in this heartfelt homage to a warm, wily art-world one-off."
‑ Kevin Harley, Total Film
"Jes Benstock's documentary is a big glittery hug of a celebration."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"Impressively directed and nicely structured, this is an engaging and enjoyable documentary that serves as an affectionate celebration of one of Britain's most colourful characters."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"As a cherishable example of alternative British culture, it makes you wonder why this isn't the orthodoxy while the rest of the rubbish that sometimes passes for Anglo-Saxon fun and entertainment is demoted to the counterculture."
‑ Nigel Andrews, Financial Times
"Benstock's sideways look at the world of alternative fashion is funny, fabulous and fittingly batty."
‑ Eve Barlow, Empire Magazine
