This rather claustrophobic documentary examines the world of female drag performers who dress up as men. Unlike other well-dressed drag documentaries (Paris is Burning, for example), the film doesn't put the performers in much of a social or sexual content. Instead, it just focusses on the personalities of the people involved. Some are interesting, some are not. The film does bring up a few interesting questions about masculinity (is it ever more than an act?), but could have tried harder to get past the simple "Huh, there are girls who dress up as guys?" concept. 102 minutes
