A pageant like no other, liberating and fun…a portal into a magical world and once you enter, you’ll never want to come back 

DocGeeks

Director Jes Benstock and producer Dorigen Hammond deploy witty animated narration and make the most of a phenomenal archive and the come-what-may charisma of Logan himself 

Time Out

If (The Alternative Miss World) is a fraction as charming as Benstock’s film, it deserves to move just a little closer to the mainstream’s radar 

Little White Lies

Makes Salvador Dali look like a painter decorator... It’s the cinematic event of the year, sweetie

Jes Benstock’s exuberant documentary...will click with audiences interested in the irreverent arts 

The Hollywood Reporter

An inclusive, non-judgemental space in which anyone can participate and transform themselves into anything they desire, regardless of age, gender or size 

CineVue

A serious point is also about the empowering significance of a space for those who simply don't connect to popular culture's plastic conformity 

Radio Times

The British Guide To Showing Off is the gaudiest and weirdest show you’ll see all year, and a roller coaster ride through the underbelly of bedlam... 

The AU Review

Benstock's film is affectionate, indulgent and clearly in love with its subject 

The Guardian

This is a film filled with love for ‘Fabulocity’...
