Crushingly poignant and lovingly crafted portrait of elderly gay life. Kier is in fine form and is well-served by an excellent screenplay. Too sad to be the rollicking picaresque it aims to be, but an endearing success regardless.
Kenji Misumi closes his time in the director's seat for the film franchise with this bizarre and outlandish series highlight. Outside of some needless wheel-spinning at the outset, this is a tightly wound and intricately constructed masterwork. Explicitly adult in themes and content, surely the most deranged entry if not the most audacious. As good a finale for the mythos as one could hope for, yet the adventures continue on (for better or worse).
Inciteful and illuminating queer documentary which exhibits uncommon depth of niche information and history. Truly a family affair, the heart poured into the production is evident.
