"Priscilla is, with Ballroom, the reason why I love Australian movies. Both movies are exaggerated, with an use of color that serves to punch you on an eye and force your attention. In Priscilla I think the colors, in the dresses of the drag queens, are at the same way protection and declaration: with the exaggerated colors Mitzi, Felicia and Bernadette are claiming, we are here and we are beautiful, but they are also protecting themselves, since in no way they can be mistaken for "real" women. When Felicia tries to do that, the consequence is no good, and it's not a coincedence that Bernadette, the transgender of the three, is also the one who wants to be classy and sometime "out of the group", dressing like a real lady.
I love Patrick Swayze, but the remake they did in the USA of this movie is not the same, is a totally different thing, and so, I highly recommend to track down this version of the movie."
