I can’t quite figure Fags In the Fast Lane out.
The camp sci-fi grind house film bills itself as a “truly trashy, pansexual rock-and-roll adventure” filled with “magic golden cocks, amyl nitrate sniffing giantesses, badass police, disco mutants, androgynous Elvis assassins, kickboxing drag queens and loud muscular men with big exhausts.”
Which sounds great in theory but….. I don’t know….
Is this wonderfully subversive or wildly inappropriate? My gut tells me if I even have to ask, I should probably stay away from it and not post it. And yet… and yet… It has an early John Waters/Doris Fish/Vegas In Space vibe that I used to enjoy A LOT. Now it all feels slightly dated and culturally insensitive.
Watch the trailer below and decide for yourself. (Check out some PROS and CONS about it over at Unicorn Booty)
Fags In the Fast Lane stars cult icons Kitten Natividad and El Vez, as well as The Mummies, King Khan, Chris Asimos, Sasha Cuha, Matt Jones, Hot Wings, Sugar Fed Leopards, Ollie Bell, Justine Jones, Aimee Nichols... and many more!
It opens at St Kilda’s Astor Theatre in Melbourne on Tuesday, 27 June, and possibly streaming later in the year.
