"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

To be honest, it has been quite a while since I have seen this flick and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. Anyway, even though it seems to be rather forgotten nowadays, I remember quite well when it was released. Indeed, back in those days, it was quite a cult -classic following the new hype around drag-queens at the time. Eventually, even though it was a decent watch, I think the road-tri... read more

Two drag-queens (Anthony/Mitzi and Adam/Felicia) and a transexual (Bernadette) contract to perform a drag show at a resort in Alice Springs, a resort town in the remote Australian desert. They head west from Sydney aboard their lavender bus, Priscilla. En route, it is discovered that the woman they've contracted with is Anthony's wife. Their bus breaks down, and is repaired by Bob, who travels on with them.

A good movie

“To be honest, it has been quite a while since I have seen this flick and maybe I should re-watch it at some point.

Indeed, back in those days, it was quite a cult -classic following the new hype around drag-queens at the time. Eventually, even though it was a decent watch, I think the road-trip formula was too generic for my taste and it made the whole thing too predictable. Still, those 3 character were quite entertaining thanks to a top cast. Indeed, at the time, I think I already knew who was Terence Stamp (or maybe I was too young) but it was definitely the first time that I ever saw either Hugo Weaving and Guy Pearce and it took them many more years to finally breakthrough towards” read more

"Terrence Stamp “And so I found myself atop that perilously narrow bar. A harsh ginger wig with detachable pigtails, laddered tights, star-spangled knickers, high heeled dancing shoes, amongst a room full of out of work miner’s who’d been plied with beer to keep them from leaving.” —Terence Stamp, Rare Stamps: Reflections on Living, Breathing and Acting (Escargot Books, 2011) Long before Terence Stamp showed up in the music video for Hot Chip’s 2012 single “Night & Day” to lip-sy"
