"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

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back, I was quite eager to check it out again. In fact, even though it seems to be rather forgotten nowadays, I remember quite well when it was released. Indeed, back in those days, it became quite a cult -classic following the new hype around drag-queens at the time. Eventually, even though it was a decent watch, to be honest, it wasn't a really s... read more
View all The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert reviews
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.

"3.7. (Yle Areena) Homoilu on (naisellisten) miesten hommaa. Pitänee varmaan katsoa Teksasin Moottorisahamurhat joskus uudestaan, koska sitä etsittiin vuokraamosta tässä elokuvassa. Priscilla seikkaillut aavikolla ovat mielestäni ihan hyvin etenevä leffa. Mitään järjellistä en taaskaan saa aikaiseksi."

90 Queer Movies to See Before You Die... (100 movies items)

"Although critically acclaimed, the release of this film was pretty ballsy at the time, Australia, still at the height of its homophobic pandemic. This was one of the very first indie films to shine a sympathetic and enthusiastic light on the common life of the drag queen, someone that is often used as tasteless comedic relief in films up until this point. I had no idea what to expect going in to this and to be honest with you all, I was kind of dreading what I may have to sit through?... Very s"

A good movie

“I already saw this movie but since it was a while back, I was quite eager to check it out again. In fact, even though it seems to be rather forgotten nowadays, I remember quite well when it was released. Indeed, back in those days, it became quite a cult -classic following the new hype around drag-queens at the time. Eventually, even though it was a decent watch, to be honest, it wasn't a really strong story. Above all, 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 y” read more
