Tammy Faye Bakker,
This movie is from a parallel universe where John Waters perfected the art of movies centered on seven-foot-tall fierce black drag queens.
JW himself wasn't involved at all in this movie, BUT.
Like an early/classic John Waters film, the acting is as broad as a battleship (altho Ru is perfect Ru, all the time); and similarly too, the budget was somewhere between "exactly nothing", and "barely paid for leasing the cameras". But it works! As movies go, this isn't exactly /Blade Runner/, but it's worth a rent.
After a movie full of taekwondo, half-chubs, and evil hostage-takers, the last scene is charming and sweet-- and then as the camera pulls back to end that last scene, be prepared to be dumbfounded by something sweeter still. Those last five seconds of the movie are something you couldn't come up with on a $200M budget even if you tried.
