Storyline

Documentary about director Stephan Elliott's career after making award winning, fan favourite and festival darling- Priscilla Queen Of The Desert. The film touches on Welcome To Woop Woop, but mostly focuses on the making of his second follow up, Eye Of The Beholder. Directed by Elliott's friend and collaborator, Lizzie Gardiner, you get an intimate and what feels like a very uncensored look at making a film after great success(Priscilla...) and failure( Welcome...). Gardiner who won an Oscar for costume design for Priscilla Queen Of The Desert and is perhaps more recognisable for having worn a gold American Express dress to the Awards show - manages to infuse humour and sweetness to an otherwise soul crushing process. Worth watching, if only to see some of the behind the scenes antics of a director and his stars (Ashley Judd and Ewan McGregor). Written by Layladivine

I appreciate Eye of the Beholder so much more now!
30 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

After viewing this documentary I like Eye of the Beholder so much better. Although I am not a film student or film critic I thought the process that went into making EYE was interesting. I thought it's director had an interesting approach and a clever wit to how he handled his problems. Even when he is a bit pessimistic about his film's future he still plugs on with grace and charm. I bet if more hollywood types were like him then better films would be made.
