Critic Reviews for I Am Divine
After seeing the film premiere at SXSW, I asked a Divine-devotee friend of mine why she loves Divine so much. She simply said, "Because Divine's the original." If it wasn't already obvious, Schwartz's I Am Divine cements it.
It's surprisingly moving stuff - dressed up with just enough archival outrage to remind you how scandalous Divine once seemed.
The interviewees and even his mother, with whom he was reconciled late in his life, all portray him as a generous and very sweet-natured man.
This is, for the most part, a celebration of Divine's life unencumbered by guilt or oppression.
Schwarz offsets the camp with a sincere appreciation of both the obvious, larger-than-life personality and this performer's oft-overlooked skills ...
Audience Reviews for I Am Divine
This is an efficient and enjoyable documentary about the life and career of John Waters' muse of filth, even though it feels excessively reverential and has a structure that is a bit too conventional - which seems pretty ironic, considering the unconventional subject in question.
A thorough and compassionate exploration of an enigmatic yet wonderfully eccentric individual, I Am Divine has plenty to say about identity, fame, and self-respect.
The life of Glen Milstead, from a chunky effeminate nerd who got beat up at school to the iconic, outrageous and obscene 300 lb drag queen Divine, the main attraction in John Waters' transgressive early comedies. The reverential interviews and clips meet, but don't exceed, your expectations for a documentary about Divine.
