A fascinating portrait of a unique life
28 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In American Fabulous, filmmaker Reno Dakota has created a fascinating portrait of a unique life... his friend Jeffrey Strouth. Reno had the foresight to capture this amazing storyteller sitting in the back of his classic Cadillac... shot on Hi-8 video in the late 1980s, the film looks a bit grainy at times but it is perfectly apropos and only adds to the immediacy of this engrossing documentary. Strouth is so hilarious, so Queenie but so blunt and shocking as he tells the story of his life that the viewers of this film cannot help but be held in suspense wondering what he will say next! There is a story he tells (I will not give it away) that is so disgusting and so funny it had tears running down my face. When the film ends, and you realize Jeffrey is long gone - a victim of AIDS, all one can feel is gratitude that Reno Dakota captured and shared these gems with us!
