Gloria Gaynor: I Will Survive (2023) Tribeca 2023

Portrait of disco music icon  Gloria Gaynor as she produces a self funded gospel album and looks back at the trials and tribulations of her life.

Everything you wanted to know about Ms Gaynor and then some. Its a hell of a story with lots of unexpected turns. Its a film that celebrates the singer in the best possible way.

I really liked the film. I liked that it fills in the details on the life of a singer who for the better part of the last five decades.  Its a wild ride.

What I didn't like is that the presentation is rather rather run of the mill. It isn't remotely bad, this is a really good film, but the subject deserves better. She's a woman who survived a great deal and deserves something more than a by the numbers telling.

While I may have liked something flashier, I still liked the film and as such I recommend the film if the subject interests you.
