CGiii Comment

Bartels manages to tick all the boxes in the LGBT spectrum.
 
However, a documentary is only as strong as its subjects...here, those subjects are a dreary bunch of individuals...spouting endlessly on about everything, amounting to nothing.
 
There is one exception - Mark - he does have something worth listening to - living with disability in the gay community.
 
The others...Jayrome, the performance artist, is a bore. Nico, the queer/punk writer, is lost in nostalgia. And, Isabelle will make you feel nauseous.
 
The end could have come quicker - by cutting out these three testimonies.
 
Monumentally monotonous.
