6. DVD: I Am Divine
Jeffrey Schwarz is no stranger to the art of the documentary. His latest, I Am Divine, is a portrait of America’s most famous and controversial drag queen. Divine is perhaps best known as John Waters’ muse — the drag queen who, in her quest to become the filthiest person in the world, ate dog feces in the cult classic Pink Flamingos. But Schwarz literally cuts the crap, providing a candid portrait of the man behind the makeup — Harris Glenn Milstead — and his rise from an overweight and effeminate child from the Baltimore suburbs to “Drag Queen of the Century,” as dubbed by People magazine. The documentary includes interviews with John Waters, Ricki Lake, Bruce Vilanch, Tab Hunter, Michael Musto, and many more of Divine’s friends and contemporaries. — Daniel Reynolds
