Women He’s Undressed

Gay Essential Review: Women He’s Undressed at BFI Flare

Filmmaker Gillian Armstrong’s playful docu-drama, Women He’s Undressed takes a thoughtful and engaging look at an eccentric man who was bold enough to do anything he wanted even when the odds were stacked against him. Combining classic Hollywood film, live interviews, found correspondence, and creative live action vignettes, Armstrong introduces audiences to one of the most important figures of classic cinema. The director weaves her story through memories and glimpses of the Old Hollywood era, yet manages to maintain a more vibrant pace than most documentary filmmaking.
