  3. Benjamin Reid's rating of the film Female Trouble

    Delightfully deranged. I laughed throughout because of how ridiculous it is. Divine is really really funny and all out in this one. Mink Stole with her car crash scene and Edith Massey in her ridiculous s&m outfit also stand out. Waters has a talent at making people who do revolting things seem oddly adorable. That's what this film is: revolting but adorable.

  4. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Female Trouble

  5. empathymachine's rating of the film Female Trouble

    this is probably the shrillest movie i've ever seen thanks to the dreamland actors' weird way of talking (well, shouting). that being said, this is either where john waters started to click for me or i'm just getting used to, in the best way possible, his particular style of low-budget glamorous trash

  6. Lucas Granero's rating of the film Female Trouble

    "El cine es un invento sin futuro", dijo uno de los Lumiere sin pensar de que su invento serviría para filmar esta exhibición de gloriosas atrocidades. Ver a Divine violarse a si mismo, a Mink Stole convertida en hare-krishna, a Edith Massey enjaulada y perdiendo un brazo y todos los otros momentos cumbres de este John Waters en su pico máximo de creatividad kitsch cuentan tanto como el tren llegando a la estación.

  7. Royce Jr.'s rating of the film Female Trouble

    John Waters got it all: mad filthy world of his own, distinctive style, sensibility, full control on the films, precious muse - Divine, hardcore humour... all appeared like complete trash. Lovely film

  8. FISCHER's rating of the film Female Trouble

    L'empereur du mauvais goût et sa débordante égérie convient une fois de plus le spectateur à une de leurs obscènes gâteries. Immanquable ! www.cinefiches.com

  9. amandav's rating of the film Female Trouble

    i wouldn't suck your lousy dick if i was suffocating and there was oxygen in your balls!

  11. sissy69's rating of the film Female Trouble

  12. Katya Kazbek's rating of the film Female Trouble

    As much as I adore Divine, Edith Massey kind of steals the show in this one.

  13. Renton47's rating of the film Female Trouble

    I honestly believe making 'good' bad taste is one of the most precarious talents in cinema. Today provocateurs are more concerned with insulting taboos, rather than, in their sick ways, celebrating them as an affront to normalcy. This is still transgressive, and it really stings when Dawn threatens to institutionalise her daughter. It's raw and pure, sicko cat nip. Shantay you stay.

  14. ΞRIC B∆D TASTΞ's rating of the film Female Trouble

    poor twisted Dawn - sick stuff.

  15. mimivulturul's rating of the film Female Trouble

  16. EdieEmm's rating of the film Female Trouble

    In which we are introduced to one of the best lines in cinema history: "I wouldn't suck your lousy dick if I was suffocating and there was oxygen in your balls!" John Waters, as always, subverting everything that's subvertible about proscriptive middle-class normativity. Why be in the thrall of the depraved spectacle that is our society when you can BE the depraved spectacle in society! Yaass queen!

  17. Poor Margo's rating of the film Female Trouble

  18. James Mackin's rating of the film Female Trouble

    Divine makes an Oscar speech on the electric chair, and it's one of the great crimes of cinema she didn't get an honourary Oscar for it.

  19. Kiko, um cronópio's rating of the film Female Trouble

  20. Rocco's rating of the film Female Trouble

    My favorite Waters. This is the moment when his satire and signature filth actually meshed 100 percent. Divine is exquisite.

  21. reeves mainwaring's rating of the film Female Trouble

    I'd enlist if a foreign power ever threatened my freedom to watch Female Trouble.
