Bravo!  I was hoping someone would bring this point up.  I was sitting
here, biting my tongue because of my recent unpopular stance on Quentin
Tarantino's use of racist language.
 
I, too, found that particular sequence to be tasteless -- and needlessly
so, just like Tarantino & PF.  It marred an otherwise wonderful film.  It
is particularly hard to understand in this case because *Priscilla* was
otherwise so understanding in its depiction of people who live outside the
established "norms" of contemporary society.
