You can watch it here with English subtitles:
Quite NSFW - no sex, but enough closeup of body parts that we don't usually spend a lot of time looking at (outside of porn).
Much like Linn da Quebrada's life somewhere between male and female, my reaction is somewhere between good and bad, like and dislike.
If you're not open to the whole idea of gender queerness, then you'll probably want something a little less in your face -- though this wasn't really the issue for me. IDK, I know the music didn't really grab me but the editing worked well enough, and the visuals were interesting, conjuring up images of a music video.
This isn't really a statement of how the world should be - though messages along those lines can be extracted if one wants - no, this is a statement of how Linn da Quebrada is, with views of both the public and the private. Other characters revolve around her, but besides Jup, do we really get to know any of them? Maybe mom? A bit?
Guess the other issue is Linn da Quebrada doesn't come across as a quite fully developed character in this documentary. It's very much about the images she wants the world to see. Kind of reminds me of those "Meet the Queen" TV specials, just different. REALLY different.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
