The reigning champ of last season’s Drag Race, Sharon Needles is nothing if not an outcast. In Sharon Needles: Parental Guidance Suggested, filmmaker Paul Brickman takes a deeper look into the world of drag’s brilliant, gothic mastermind.
Featuring interviews with Geoffrey Mac, M. Sharkey, and Ms. Needles herself, the film goes behind-the-scenes of her video, “This Club is a Haunted House,” giving insight into the counter-cultural library that is Sharon’s brain. Both In and out of drag, Sharon serves up her own Truth or Dare moment, delivering a modern version of the Madonna documentary that shows the method behind the madness.
When asked about the definitive future of Sharon Needles, Aaron Coady keeps it short and sweet: “I don’t know how to do anything else.” Touche, ma’am.
