Required viewing for the Black Rock Desert
by Lizard Man

The Road Warrior
Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
Tank Girl
Heavy Metal

All four of these movies feature expansive, surreal landscapes as a catalyst for the action that takes place. The bleak, post-apocalyptic desert of The Road Warrior contrasts with the flippant approach to a similar post-apocalyptic scenario in Tank Girl.

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert is a definite requirement for anybody grappling with the evolution of Black Rock Fashion. Answers and inspirations abound as a troupe of drag queens make their way across the Australian Outback. The acting is par excellence, by the way.

Finally, Heavy Metal, perhaps the most ambitious animated undertaking since Ralph Bakshi ran out of money to complete Lord of the Rings, takes the viewer through a number of otherworldy landscapes, populated with creatures from your dreams and nightmares.
