Female Trouble Directed by John Waters

Critics reviews

Waters smashes the bowdlerizing codes of Hollywood morality with self-consciously delirious parodies of classic Hollywood genres and tropes; the resulting feast of sex, violence, cruelty, and frivolity mocks sentimental notions of family, work, and love, and turns the egomaniacal furies of pop culture inside out.

For me, the passing of 44 years hasn’t improved any of the secondary cast’s atrocious acting, but once Divine’s gusto and Waters’ writing manage to persuade us to overlook such irritants it’s all clear sailing.

Despite its Wellesian hands-on auteurism, Female Trouble succeeds spectacularly not only because it is a John Waters movie but also because it is undeniably a Divine movie, in the same way one might speak of a Bette Davis movie, a Marilyn Monroe movie, or a Jayne Mansfield movie.
