Priscilla, Queen of the Desert
I don't agree that the libratory aspects of the road are suppressed in Priscilla. This movie focuses on a non-normative group taking to the road and finding themselves on the journey while confronting a society that often rejects them. Although attempts are made to reinforce normal masculinity (such as when their bus is vandalized), they persevere by painting over the hate speech. For every obstacle they encounter, they overcome it in some way. They do not give up when the couple who was coming to rescue them when their bus broke down drove away upon seeing them. Even though the men at the bar didn't enjoy their performance, they didn't let that stop them from performing. If anything, the road made them more confident in their choices because for every couple of people that they met who ridiculed them, they met someone who accepted them. They found support and friends through their journey and that is why the road was a liberating experience for them.
