Check out the great review of THE SKIN I’M IN’s DVD release in EDGE ON THE NET.
Fox offers his story with no sense of self-importance — this is not a vanity project. Rather, this film will speak to anyone who has felt shattered and engaged in the struggle to become whole. Fox shares his triumphs and his fears; from his story we might draw solace, even strength. Read full review
I’m humbled by this review of the film which appeared today in EDGE MIAMI, in advance of Saturday’s Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival Screening.
“Fox allows the documentary to open up and breathe, and in doing so, composes a lyrical film built out of layers, with the tattoo occupying only the most superficial of those layers — that is, the tattoo lives on the “skin” of the film, just as it lives on Fox’s skin, but it emerges from depths that are dark and perilous. The light to which the filmmaker, and his film, ascends is warm and enveloping…This documentary may take the camera-as-confessor approach that our online culture seems to foster, but Fox the filmmaker knows how to take the stuff of memoir and fashion art. His transformative journey is remarkable, and perhaps unique, but parts of it will be recognizable to many viewers; moreover, this film may well become part of the healing paths of those who sit with Fox, in a darkened theatre, to share in his journey.” Read full review here.
