    Paris Is Burning is an important look into the drag and transgender scene of the eighties that offers a lot of revelatory interviews along with introducing the viewers to the vocabulary and this overall culture very well. The movie is well directed and edited, but its severely melancholic tone really sticks with you, and it culminates with that heartbreaking ending.

    An absolutely fantastic documentary. The people are so genuine, fun, often wise beyond their years, and clearly resilient. Brilliant but also important and incredibly poignant.

    Like the balls themselves, the film allows people to express themselves without facing unwarranted judgement.

    Though gawkily put together, this LGBT documentary remains iconic by centering on queer iconoclasts of color having a ball pursuing an alternative lifestyle to escape poverty and abandonment issues by defining voguing, shading and reading, pretending to be the women of their blonde ambition.
