A beautiful miasma of performance art
28 April 2014 | by wheelercubSee all my reviews

I've been to Trannyshack several times when I lived in SF and I have to say that this documentary brings back some great memories. Trannyshack has always been one of those 'slice of life' club experiences that you have to see to truly believe. Those who frequent the show then and now truly enjoy intellectual and slightly askew views of both the world and the performers of Trannyshack. And I have to say that Filthy Gorgeous really exemplifies and conveys that experience to new viewers.

Filthy Gorgeous is on my top 10 list of shockingly fun movies to show my friends, and a wonderful piece of San Francisco nostalgia for myself. If you can get to the West Coast, take a disco nap on Tuesday and then head out to the Midnight showing of Trannyshack for an experience you won't forget. And if you can't make it out to SF, get yourself a copy of this film and enjoy the heck out of it.
