Mala Mala
To the uninitiated, the struggles of transsexuals and the transgendered in Puerto Rico seems like a narrow story to tell. “Mala Mala” doesn't waste time trying to give audiences a “universal” hook, nor does it exoticize its performers. Instead, this documentary is affectingly sensual, from its showy, salacious beginning into its startling behind-the-scenes intimacy. It's the scope of this doc, which takes its varied stories to the Puerto Rican government, that makes it a landmark LGBT film.
