Beauty Is Embarrassing (Neil Berkeley, 2012)

Wayne White is too fascinating a character for the staid documentary techniques of Beauty Is Embarrassing. In fact, I found myself wishing I could have just seen the one-man show sprinkled throughout the film as a framing device than the movie itself. Nevertheless, if the point of these kinds of movies is to spark interest in their neglected subjects, then Beauty Is Embarrassing is certainly a success.

My full review is up now at Spectrum Culture.
