"You've never seen Udo Kier like this before...the actor brings something no other performer could to the role, a sly European elegance […], which he undercuts with just the right degree of pathos."
"What's most notable about Todd Stephens' heartfelt salute to a real-life local legend is that the campiness of its outrageous plot becomes secondary to the soulful poignancy"
- Hollywood Reporter
"Udo Kier's best performance"
"The story examines love, grief and connection in the gay community, and Kier gives a nuanced turn to match, nailing comedic and touching scenes alike"
- Los Angeles Times
