I’ll never look at those three guys the same way again…
…and that’s a GOOD thing. Basically, before I truly became aware of “Priscilla”, I had only thought of its three central actors as just regular, boring guys who were fine enough at acting, but really weren’t anything special. Wrong. I had heard about this mysterious movie once or twice, but had no idea who was in it, nor what it was about (beyond the rather vague concept of drag queens/transvestites), and when I decided to read more about it, and find out who was in the cast – SURPRISE! Guy Pearce (of whom I had had a bad first impression when I discovered him in that travesty “The Time Machine”), Hugo Weaving (Agent Smith himself!!!), and Terence Stamp (whom I don’t think I ever saw in any films, but whom I still knew a fair bit about)! How genius is that? I had to see this to believe it, and when I did, I was not let down! Beautiful scenes, costumes, dialogue and music made this probably one of the most interesting and memorable movie experiences of my life! I wasn’t the least bit uptight about it (as some people were turned off by the flamboyant behaviour and distasteful jokes, which I found refreshingly great!), and delighted in the campy antics of this fantastic trio! It’s a beautiful, feel-good comedy that I recommend to anyone with a catty sense of humour (and a VERY open mind).
A Meaningful Riot,
The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert is a fantastic movie with a very well developed plot and an outstanding cast. It is a really funny film, as we follow a group of drag queens lip syncing to famous pop songs while journeying across Australia. However, it is also has a very meaningful, heartfelt message, as it embraces the idea of doing what makes you happy, whether people like it or not, cause it is your life and you choose how you live it.
The only issue I really had is that I felt we did not get to learn enough about the three main characters before they begin their journey. Very little is actually said about their past or personal life, which would have helped us connect with them more before their adventure begins.
The three leads are stellar, it was a huge risk on all of their careers, as straight actors, to be taking on these roles, and they could not have performed them with more liveliness. Terence Stamp keeps a serious demeanour throughout, Hugo Weaving’s characterisation is fantastic, while Guy Pearce’s wild and energetic personality is the highlight of the film for me.
There is nothing quite like it, big fun with big heart. Sweet, funny and meaningful, I would recommend The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert to anyone looking for a good comedy.
A trio of drag queens journey across Australia to perform their unique act.
