Queeny

Australia, 1995 (MIFF 1996)

Director: Rebecca McLean

Who is she and why are they saying these terrible things about her? What did Queeny ever do to deserve this public approbation? Not that everyone dislikes her. but the Jury's still out if the 22 interviewees here are anything to go by. Queeny's moment of enigmatic revelation is amongst the most sublime to be found all year. Queeny rules and i dont care what they say. (TB)
