  3. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Polyester

    A satire of the suburban melodrama. I never knew I needed this, but I did. I really did. Shout out to all the foot fetishists of the world. "Look, mother, I've discovered macramé!"

  4. el.'s rating of the film Polyester

    2,5/5. love waters, but this did not work for me

  5. L.F.G.'s rating of the film Polyester

    a "smell melodrama" \ director's commentary is characteristically exquisite

  6. ninfurs's rating of the film Polyester

    filth in an angora cardigan, smelling like gin and delight.

  7. Mar J's rating of the film Polyester

  8. The Mayor Of Hell's rating of the film Polyester

    Solid funny film. Waters debut "mainstream" film of which they just kept getting better and better. Still a lot of dreamlanders hanging around for this one and they give it a wacky often hilarious atmosphere. Doug sirk parody although, to me, not necessarily as campy as his other films. Always appreciate the refined wit of mr. waters

  9. AdrianM.'s rating of the film Polyester

    John Waters satire is really something else

  11. yasdnil's rating of the film Polyester

    It's about time I started watching more John Waters. Having the odorama would've been pretty legit.

  13. its katie's rating of the film Polyester

    2.5 I know debbie harry co-wrote & did the backing vocals on the title track but i wish there was a version available of just her singing it (dreamy!)

  15. msmichel's rating of the film Polyester

    The film that first edged Waters from the underground to the mainstream while maintaining a certain level of his earlier films trash appeal. Divine is great here as a 'good Christian woman' struggling to keep her family an 'average American' one despite a cheating husband, perverted son, tramp daughter and a hateful mother. Lots of chuckles in this Baltimore set trash melodrama.

  20. Harry Rossi's rating of the film Polyester

    Masterful! Just absolutely amazing, hilarious, insane and really fucking weird! The more I watch from Waters the more I am deeply deeply falling in love with him and his movies. Everything about the style and Water's direction was just glorious. Divine and Edith Massey were both amazing and hilarious. Some unforgettable moments and lines. I feel like I'm rambling but I loved this so much it's making me crazy!

  21. Rodrigo's rating of the film Polyester

    Eu tive a experiência única de assistir este filme numa mostra no Rio onde John Waters palestrou antes. Nós ganhamos uma cartela do ODORAMA, onde haviam números q deveriam ser raspados durante certas cenas do filme e o odor referente era liberado; tinha odor de banco de couro ao de cocô e lança-perfume. Experiência fantástica!

  23. VENIMOS LOS JODIMOS Y NOS FUIMOS's rating of the film Polyester

    El datalle curioso de esta cinta, era su exhibiciòn en "Odorama". Este "sistema" consistia en que, a la entrada del recinto, a cada espectador le era entregada una planilla con 10 diferentes "rascahueles", con un olor especifico para cada escena (mierda, olor a calcetines, a flores, etc.). Como todo el cine de Waters, es bastante elemental, pero ese detalle era cagadisimo.

  24. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Polyester

    Something of a bridge between the early underground comedies and the latter more technically polished films. As ever, Divine is the word, offering a hilarious impression of Elizabeth Taylor gone-to-seed as a terminally harassed housewife in picket-fence suburbia. It still packs quite a few laughs in, but you do start to miss the raucus filth of a few years before with some of the edges smoothed off.
