    LGBT Studies: 3/9

    Paris is Burning is a compellingly shot, fascinating documentary about ballroom culture that had me hooked just from the perspectives on screen.

It's an intriguing study of class that somehow seamlessly switches tones about halfway through the movie but that is engaging all the way through. I can't necessarily speak as to how well the nuances of the written dialogue and line deliveries were executed since…
