Movie Summary

Keely Christian
Released:

Dive into more than a century of decadence with this tantalizing look at the evolution of burlesque. Cabaret star Leslie Zemeckis traces the art form from vaudeville-style variety show through its extinction and contemporary rebirth. Vintage photos, film clips and ads illustrate burlesque's resilient history and how the public's sexual appetite kept it alive amid moral and legal ado. Zemeckis's husband, Robert, executive produces.

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    A charming, uncritical, often entertaining jumble, the documentary was written and directed by Leslie Zemeckis.

  • 70

    Variety Ronnie Scheib

    The women's outspoken commentaries prove consistently colorful and their long-ago stripteases -- feathers flying, tassels spinning -- still pack a sensual, sassy, what-the-hell punch.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    You hear some nostalgia, but with most of them you don't get the idea that if they had the chance they'd do it all again.
