Storyline

Documentary about director Stephan Elliott's career after making award winning, fan favourite and festival darling- Priscilla Queen Of The Desert. The film touches on Welcome To Woop Woop, but mostly focuses on the making of his second follow up, Eye Of The Beholder. Directed by Elliott's friend and collaborator, Lizzie Gardiner, you get an intimate and what feels like a very uncensored look at making a film after great success(Priscilla...) and failure( Welcome...). Gardiner who won an Oscar for costume design for Priscilla Queen Of The Desert and is perhaps more recognisable for having worn a gold American Express dress to the Awards show - manages to infuse humour and sweetness to an otherwise soul crushing process. Worth watching, if only to see some of the behind the scenes antics of a director and his stars (Ashley Judd and Ewan McGregor). Written by Layladivine

Hollywood Exposed from Down Under
5 June 2001 | by AZINDNSee all my reviews

Australian director Stephen Elliott's film "Eye of the Beholder" failed at the boxoffice and was trounced by critics. Why the film was so problematic is revealed in Lizzy Gardner's documentary, Killing Priscilla. While Elliot tries to secure funding and actors for his film, Hollywood suits advise and undermine his self-confidence and artistic vision. Shot as filming took place, Gardner's camera crew follows Elliott as he must juggle a shooting schedule, non-existent budget, and wanning interest in his film from Canada to San Francisco, Arizona, D.C. and London. A must for any film maker who dreams of Hollywood as the golden opportunity to make a career. Great snips between star Ewan McGregor and Elliot in rehersal for the film.
