Have you ever wondered what could happen to Alice if she met a troop of Drag Queens? “Malice in Wonderland – The Dolls Movie” is the answer. This wonderful and somewhat sensual film parodies beloved classics such as: Alice in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz, with a little Marry Poppins and Mommie Dearest sprinkled on top. “Nanny Dearest,” is hired as the new nanny for little Alice. Alice finds herself in service to the nanny’s unrelenting demands as she is subjugated to bizarre psychological and physical abuses. The last straw comes when Alice adopts a white rabbit…precocious little Alice is thrown into a psychedelic Wonderland of fractured fairy tales and fabulous freaks in this bawdy drag queen mash up that would make Lewis Carrol roll over in his grave. (USA / Comedy–LGBT / 79 min / 2011)Director: Russell Maynor.
“Culture Shock,” follows four American college grads who travel to London and experience a new culture for their first trip overseas. What was meant as a carefree coming-of-age summer experience becomes a colorful chase of a lifetime as they get caught up in a series of murders and an international crime ring. Culture Shock is an innovative and entertaining, tongue-in-cheek take on the crime thriller.
