One song before I go.: RENT the movie with the commentary

Just saw two coolcool movies that I wanted to throw out there.
1. Paris is Burning. . .a kinda wonderful documentary which follows the "Ball Circuit" in New York City in the mid-80s. "Balls" started out as underground drag shows, but turned into sort of a "Fantasy show," where mostly gay black or Latino men lived out whatever they wished were true. It's very sweet, and kinda sad how simple their dreams are.
2. Connie and Carla Nia Vardalos and Toni Collette playing women playing drag queens to run from drug kingpins. I had no idea there was any drag involved at all when I rented it. No really, I didn't. But it's delightful and funny and involves Debbie Reynolds. It also involves Alec Mapa, whom I loved in Playing By Heart as well. Check 'em out :)
