Movie Info

Leslie Jordan writes and stars in this autobiographical account of being gay and drug-addled in 1970s Atlanta. The film opens with the protagonist known only as Storyteller (Jordan) meeting his maker after a drug overdose and trying to explain the sorry state of his former life. Rewind 20 years, when our hero, styling himself as a lilliputian dandy à la Truman Capote, leaves home for Atlanta -- dubbed the "San Francisco of the South." There he meets debutante refugee and drug connoisseur "Miss Make-Do" (Erin Chandler) who introduces him to the wonderful world of chemicals and the film's titular hotel -- a low-rent Chelsea-like dive. After his benefactress kicks him out for taking up with a thuggish coke dealer, the hapless fop protagonist finds another protector in Tripper -- a roughneck junkie, ex-con, and pimp. The two form a weird platonic and dependent relationship that eventually spirals into an opiate oblivion.

Audience Reviews for Lost In The Pershing Point Hotel

Has much that tries for outrageous camp, but too much of it plays like a crude travesty of overly familiar Southern decadence.

:rotten: :rotten: The main character of the HIGHLY annoying film is some screaming queen that makes Truman Capote and Rip Taylor look like men. "His" voice alone makes this film unwatchable but to top that off, it try's in vain to be another John Waters film. Somewhere out there, there is someone who will actually like this film but 98% of the population will hate it as much as I did.
