very moving film
4 November 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Not a main stream movie by any means. This movie is funny, exciting, sad, and uplifting. See this film for Thomas Jane, Salma Hayek, the funny drag queens and the cool photography. I liked the music too. The film was a little slow in some parts but well worth
