Behind the scenes with ‘Skinny Legend’ Trixie Mattel, the RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 3 winner who’s very serious about drag, and very serious about being funny.

Trixie is the drag persona of Milwaukee-born country musician Brian Firkus. We meet as she's recording a new album and struggling to keep her TV comedy spin-off, The Trixie & Katya Show, together. As Trixie admits, she did a really shitty job on her first season of RuPaul's Drag Race. When she's approached to join the All Stars season, she feels she has nothing to lose – and yet much to prove. A whirlwind tour follows – Dublin-Manchester-Los Angeles-Chicago – with hardly a moment to pull on her Parton-like gown or paint her signature face. Not just an on-the-road-with-Trixie film, this is also a surprisingly revealing portrait of the life of a professional performer – one with heels, humour and heart.

'Moving Parts' is full of funny and heartfelt moments and succeeds in making one of 'Drag Race's' pricklier-seeming queens more likeable, but it's most interesting as an unglamorous peek into the Drag Race Industrial Complex.

Like Penn and Teller showing the secrets to their tricks, 'Moving Parts' doesn't strip away the magic. It makes you marvel at the mastery of the craft behind it.
