Editorial Reviews

Based on the sensational best seller, I WANT WHAT I WANT helped pave the way for the release of many other films dealing with transvestite and transsexual themes. Acclaimed British actress ANNE HEYWOOD (THE FOX, THE CHAIRMAN) stars as Roy, a young English man who works at a real estate agency and lives with his widowed father (Harry Andrews - SUPERMAN, THE INTERNECINE PROJECT).
Roy's existence is a fight against loneliness as he is obsessed by a secret desire that no one understands.

The movie base in the 1970's England. Its about a young man. Who feels that he is not a male. But something else. He secretly crossdresses behind his family. Thou he's a adult. He has to hide it. Because its still a society taboo. Forbidden for men to wear women's clothes. When he is accidently discovered wearing a dress by his father. His father tried to shame to be a man. In that moment he start a journey in womenhood. He started act, behave, look, and think like a women. He found a place so become more a woman and be treated like one!

If I had to rate the film overall I would give it a C, but at a crucial time in my life, this movie told me what I needed to know about my own self.

5.0 out of 5 stars A review of the book, not the movie February 25, 2014
By Jenelle
I Want What I Want, supposedly authored by Geoff Brown, has been a mystery that has spawned great interest in a small intellectual section of the transgender community. The community in general strongly rejects the notions of hopelessness set forth in the book. The community wants to place blame on society for the dysphoria associated with their condition. The community does not want to admit that the condition includes a psychological abnormality of a potentially self-destructive nature. Thus, the community rejects out of hand the underlying premise of the book.

I do not.

On first reading I immediately recognized an incredibly accurate insight to the condition. (By condition I mean gender identity dysforia, GID) This book could not possible have been written by Brown, an uneducated English bloke.. Several people have tried to track down the named author. He was found several years ago but refused any interview. He reportedly has also earlier refused to cooperate with the production of the movie which is the subject of DVD being offered here by Amazon. He was found to have lived in the same house that he was born in, lived in more that 30 years with his wife, and apparently died in several years ago having supposedly written just one additional unsuccessful book.


He could no more be the author of that book then I could fly to the moon with waxed wings in a mini skirt.

I have now studied the book in more detail and realized that the term "psychotic hermaphrodite" was the key to finding the true author. That term was employed by a Dr. John Money of John's Hopkins University Hospital in association with transexuality. Money was initially a well respected pioneer in the transgender field.

3.0 out of 5 stars a transgender oldie August 24, 2013

If you like older dvds attempting to tackle the current socially relevant issues--this is for you. The acting is wooden and the dialogue laughable. As a period piece it does give us a window into the thinking and attitudes present during this period--1972. I read this novel more than 40 (?) years ago and thought it was well done--today I wouldn't give it a second look. If you want a laugh....go for it.
