    Though frustratingly superficial and shot through a nostalgic, rose-colored lens, this enthralling 2010 doc opens a wider window on forgotten world of burlesque shows than anything I've previously seen.

    Leslie Zemeckis's slightly ramshackle but utterly entertaining Behind the Burly Q is a painstakingly researched love letter to the women and men who once made up the community of burlesque performers.
  3. This doc contributes to the small collection of films on burlesque something more self-aware looks at the matter don't: an exposition of the messy history of a complex popular art that still leaves us with much to explore.
