Biography / Comedy / Drama
The life and times of Quentin Crisp, an outrageous and flamboyant homosexual, coming of age and growing into old age in conservative England.
Well, I was moved. I mean at that time, at that era, he lived as he was. In the interview, there are a few interviews with him as special features in DVD, he talks about himself, and I totally admire him. He was in much harder situation than now. Also John Hurt performs very well. It is quite impressive thing that he has almost stolen Quentin Crisp's way of talking, walking, moving, and etc.
Actually beginning of this film makes me sad because of discrimination, but just come to think of it, even in this 21st century, still we have such problems. Sometimes I think prejudice would never be solved. Anyways film itself is brilliant, I assume.
