[Cereal motherhood.] Waters proved time and again that he could always manage to be a rebellious filmmaker even within the most conventional and formulaic mainstream film projects. Only Solondz managed to be this iconoclastic. He is needed now more more than ever at a juncture where fanatic (mostly left-wing leaning) political correctness menaces to smother and erode free speech into the dark ages.
Good fun and probably the best of the more recent Waters offerings with a little spice in the silly snuff. Waters has now more or less productised himself - witness This Filthy World for the best summary - with the films reference points for an anecdote. I suppose his earlier work is now anaesthetised as the mainstream has degraded into a trash aesthetic but without his wit. As a slick raconteur he's one of the best.
Suburban duplicity and early 90's media sensationalism receive a much deserved raking over the coals courtesy of cultural malcontent John Waters. Anchored by an imminently quotable screenplay and a nothing-less-than-iconic performance from Kathleen Turner, "Serial Mom" deserves to be spoken of in the same breath as "Clueless" and "Scream" as one of the most subversive, fun, and flat-out brilliant films of its era.
Take the goofy artifice and 50s iconography of Twin Peaks' lightest moments, then crank it up to 11. The non-stop laughter with the audience I watched this with made it clear that this needs to be seen in the theater. As physical of an experience as any horror film.
La protagonista è adorabile e la sua vicenda è raccontata con intelligenza e cura.La sua famiglia perfetta non sa come gestire la sua forza distruttiva. Bellissima spettacolarizzazione del processo, che mostra il marciume nascosto nella società. La regia fa risaltare la vena comica del racconto e ha una bella forza distruttiva.Bella e ben fatta la fotografia dai colori accesi che stona volutamente con quanto mostrato
