"A desert holiday, let's pack the drag away. You take the lunch and tea, I'll take the ecstasy. Fuck off you silly queer, I'm getting out of here."

Written and directed by real-life drag queen Stephan Elliott, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert is an unflinching depiction of the behind-the-scenes happenings of a drag show. It exposes the lifestyle of drag queens, on to... read more

In the wood known as Holly, the comedy genre has by far flirted with other genres the most. The word "comedy" has nowadays - or at least to me - become a very feared prefix; comedy-horror, comedy-drama, comedy-war etc... From the comedy field, I've found many to be worthless, not the least bit amusing, and downright either pretentious or ugly - with such examples like poking fun of someone "errati... read more

Girlie Movies I Actually Like (12 movies items)

"Girlieness Rating: 9/10 You can smell girlie on the video cover of Priscilla. It's a movie about gay male cross-dressers, after all. And yet, it's another movie I absolutely adore. It's brilliantly funny and entertaining from start to end, plus the cast are totally spot-on. It's another movie that I'll happy watch with a girlfriend, as girls love this movie and so do I. It's a brilliant compromise when I don't want to watch The Notebook and they're not keen on RoboCop."

“In the wood known as Holly, the comedy genre has by far flirted with other genres the most.

From the comedy field, I've found many to be worthless, not the least bit amusing, and downright either pretentious or ugly - with such examples like poking fun of someone "erratic", a religion, a nationality, an accent, or the dude who just walks teensy bit funny, resulting in 99% of unfunny gags, offensive moments and just downright stupidity. For the sake of this (argument?), I will rule out parody / spoof movies, so no Mel Brooks reference here. Or ZAZ. By comedy I'm taking examples from all decades. The old comedies may seem innocent, smart and witty, but there's a lo” read more

A Month at the Movies - Feb. 2013 (6 movies items)

" Check out my review: http://www.listal.com/viewentry/3884506 Anyway, why did I bring up this issue? Because Priscilla is sans all that. Priscilla is a great - no, scratch that - classic comedy-drama that excels in both of the fields either side of the hyphen, first making your eyes tear with laughter and then with (wo)manly emotional scenes, that will not necessarily make you cry a la Terms of Endearment mode but in a Dan in Real Life or Adaptation manner. Two drag queens and a transsexual "

Total Film's 50 Best Gay Movies (50 movies items)

"Sparkly, shiny and hilarious, Priscilla makes for addictive viewing – and not just because it features Terence Stamp in drag. The stage show upped the camp, but Priscilla is a hybrid beast of intimate drama, all-out comedy and flashy dance routines."
