There is no denying the love that I have for Paris Is Burning. So I was pleased to hear that PBS’s documentary show, POV, is hosting a Greatest Documentary of All Time competition on their website.
More than 20 years later, Paris is still bringing it to the masses. I love this.
For those of you who don’t know what the hubbub is all about, a small clip:
Another contender to the title is the Maysles brothers’ Grey Gardens, a film that has its hold on a lot of gay hearts. We love Edie for her kookiness and her fashion sense. We love Big Edie for her eternal grace under pressure (and for never mentioning that most unmentionable of things, the mountains of cat shit in the house).
Work it, you staunch women!
