« The double portraits of the filmmaker are exchanges, gifts of friendship that we are privileged to witness. » - Les Cahiers du Cinéma

« What makes this movie fascinating is when the filmmaker brings her camera close to Cassandro's wounds and scars, revealing the exorbitant cost of his flamboyance, bringing him closer, in a way, to Genesis P-Orridge, the transforming hero from her previous feature film, who wanted to go beyond its body. » - Les Inrockuptibles
