“MISS ROSEWOOD”—A Transgender Terrorist

Miss Rosewood

A Transgender Terrorist

Amos Lassen

Helle Jensen’s  “Miss Rosewood” is the self-appointed transgender terrorist on New York hardcore performance scene, “a walking scandal on high heels, and the only woman in town with enough balls to empty a condom into the hair of Leonardo DiCaprio.” Nothing is too sensitive to be transgressed by the lovely lady, who spreads both terror, horror, admiration, as well as bodily fluids left and right in an environment that is otherwise accustomed to pretty much everything. We see that there is a sensitive and likeable person behind the thick makeup and Helle Jensen has been able to reach through to her in the film and is not afraid to take ‘a walk on the wild side’, but he also joins Rosewood, backstage, where she uses the name Jon Cory, and a family that has learned to understand the persona with whom she acts out her dreams and fantasies.
