An indie art-house masterpiece - lush and charming, wry and clever, like John Waters does Antonioni or something. A little low on plot, but makes up for it in ideas - very tender. The uncle is incredible, in fact the whole cast is great. I love Alexis Arquette, even his crazy appearance on reality TV, and he is very good here (and he is not in drag which is a twist!) It's probably not for everyone but I've been thinking about it for days and I'm sure it will stay with me for a long time. So refreshing to see a gay film like this. It's not just a "gay" film, but really artistic and human! There is no one coming-out. There are no tragic deaths. It it not camp (well, maybe a little...) And, hello, Margot Kidder! I think this film is a little gem. I had never heard of it before so I'm glad I stumbled upon it on Netflix.
