Critic Reviews for Shakedown
Performance is at the heart of "Shakedown," one of the reasons it's rich fodder for brainy considerations of LGBTQ identity and gender.
A film like Shakedown reminds viewers how hyper-masculine the gay-doc genre is. It's almost as is if most of them forget that the first letter stands for lesbian.
A thrilling and also valuable film. The audience must take the imaginative leap and accept the contradicting identities that Weinraub presents, without insisting that they must cancel out.
An artifact of a bygone time and place than anything. Weinraub captures everything, from interviews to in your face/fly on the wall conversations, with attentiveness and courage, spending the kind of effort only someone who truly cares would give.
It's a nuanced, moving look at a haven of sexual freedom and expression, and raucous fun at the same time.
