John Waters মার্কিন যুক্তরাষ্ট্র, 2000

Richmond Hill's rating of the film Cecil B. DeMented

A minor issue with Water's post-Desperate Living career is the attempted continuation of the edgy trash aesthetic without the trash (or indeed much of the edge): that is the naive earthiness of earlier films. Perhaps the cheapness atoned for thin plots, but I think it was more the hectic joie de vivre (or saleté) that was missed (except Hairspray). Not to be too po-faced though as there are always laughs with Waters.
