Kixott Movie Nights: Flawless
February 15 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Love him or loathe him, the late Joel Schumacher’s legacy as a master of the camp spectacle is hard to deny. He may have squandered a plethora of goodwill with the misjudged atrocities that were Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, but this prolific hit-churner also gifted us with The Lost Boys, Falling Down, Phone Booth…
Among his pile-up of hit-and-miss crowd-pleasers, one will find submerged a diamond in the rough which now serves to eulogise two cinematic geniuses.
Flawless stars the equally missed Philip Seymour Hoffman in a crime-comedy from that hallowed year of 1999, which co-stars none other than Robert De Niro and, refreshingly, introduces us to a transgender protagonist portrayed with verve, wit, and no hint of patronising sentimentality.
Sure, it’s still representationally un-ideal, but then again, it’s Seymour Hoffman we’re talking about here.
