The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert (1994)
#39 on my Top 100 List
The foreign label on here is used loosely - it's an Australian film, but it was theatrically released in the US before Australia and it's in English. There are very few movies as fabulous as this one. Two drag queens and a transsexual travel through the Australian Outback in a big pink bus named Priscilla to perform an ABBA show at a resort deep in the heart of the continent. Guy Pearce and Hugo Weaving have no business having legs as nice as those. The soundtrack is fantastic, as are the costumes and the shots of the wide open desert. The shiny silver shoe that they attach to the top of the bus is pretty awesome too.
My Netflix rating: 5 stars
