Killer Drag Queens on Dope was too questionable a movie for me to risk even a Netflix slot. But proved impossible to pass up when a copy came into the shop.
If nothing else I figured I could tidy up while the transvestite assassins offed their targets.
I can see why people compare it to Paul Morrisey’s “Andy Warhol” movies: you have demimonde crossdressers being silly. I wouldn’t make that comparison myself. None of the actors have that special iconic quality of Joe Dallesandro or Jackie Curtis.
A small bit did make a strong impression on me.
As Ginger Alexis (Eve Destruction) Arquette decides that she shouldn’t have a sex change merely to please a man. That she is complete and worthy as she is.
In real life Arquette is planning on complete gender reassignment. Given the odd transgender snobbery that some transsexual have - that they are better or more ‘real’ - than transvestites is was heartening to see transsexual affirm those who feel wearing the other gender’s clothing is sufficient.
I do wonder how many transpersons chose SRS to please someone other than themselves.
