In conservative, authoritarian Almaty, a small techno event aims to create a safe space for activists and the LGBT community It is a rainy spring night in Almaty, and in a small back-alley club a young DJ is playing dark British techno while wearing a T-shirt that could easily land him in jail. I’m in a crowd of about 200 at ZVUK, which for the past three years has been a remarkable outlier on the limited clubbing scene of Kazakhstan’s deeply conservative commercial capital. My visit to the city coincided with rare political ructions in a country where little dissent had been tolerated during 30 years of autocratic rule by

Drop Dead Gorgeous at 20: how dark pageant comedy works better in 201924h Drop Dead Gorgeous at 20: how dark pageant comedy works better in 2019
The pitch-black small-town mockumentary was a flop on release and left critics cold but 20 years later its vicious indecency remains daring Drop Dead Gorgeous is one of my favourite films. It also made less than its $15m budget at the box office and only has a 45% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Jesus loves winners, as Gladys Leeman tells her daughter Becky, but I do understand why Drop Dead Gorgeous was not triumphant when it was released 20 years ago. Shot as a mockumentary, and indebted to John Waters and Christopher Guest, it follows a group of young, wannabe high school beauty queens as they compete in the Sarah Rose Cosmetics Mount Rose American Teen Princess pageant. Its humour is crude, its message is anarchic, its bite is vicious and its jokes don’t so much stretch the boundaries of taste as tap-dance all over them in a mortuary.
