Frida

I thought we’d go out with a bang on our last movie because our Based on a True Story Month has had mixed results – and not one, but two appearances by my least favourite Franco brother. I consider this movie to be the Queen of all biographies, a labour of love (in getting the film made) and a remarkable story rolled into one. … Read More Frida

Truly Oddly Deeply

*Drag Race spoilers* While Drag Race doesn’t always pack the punch it used to (IMHO), I am always fully on board.
