Great film
12 November 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This documentary, a sensitive and humorous portrayal of an iconic drag club in Portland, Oregon, is enormously enjoyable and fascinating. It is very thought-provoking in that it challenges conventional views about gender and ordinary people's reactions to drag queens. The film causes the viewer to ask interesting questions about the politics of humour and what makes something funny. It includes some great music and gives a real feel of what it would be like to visit this unique club. It also highlights how Darcelle, the owner of the club and an amazing drag performer, is an unlikely but convincing community worker. The film is riveting and well worth watching.
