The Music Is The Thing
25 September 2003 | by (Commerce, GA) – See all my reviews

Whether or not you are interested in the ramblings of a Southern drag queen there is something special in this movie. It is the music. The songs performed by the group Smoke during this movie are great works of art. The songs are performed with a simple sincerity that rivals Hank Williams, The Velvet Underground, Johnny Cash and anybody else that ever sang about the human condition. This movie is worth seeking out.
