Beyond brilliant ... Mr. Hoffman broke my heart yet once again. DeNiro`s stroke is laboured, "acted," but Hoffman`s drag queen is real and true to any queen I`ve known. His `maternal` instinct especially touches me, as a woman and a friend to many gay men. My parents forwarded this video to me ... how did I miss it in the theatres??
I thought it showed the strong acting talent of both actors. Very enjoyable and thought provoking.
I thought it managed a difficult balance between overdone/camp and sensitive. Lovely sense of humour, and scenes that might not necessarily make narrative sense but were absolutely marvellous!
I really enjoyed Hoffman and Deniro`s characters interacting, both were supberb. I think the scripting and directing for their characters was very well done. The only complaint I would have is there was to much going on that didnt seem to flow with the movie. Overall I enjoyed it very much!
