An affectionate parody of stardom, indie excess, and his own days as a guerrilla filmmaker, Cecil B. Demented boasts what may be his most ingenious premise since the battle of the filth in Pink Flamingos.
I was so shocked when I saw this movie as a kid, but so glad because it shaped my taste for the weird and made me see through all the bullshit Hollywood is trying to sell to you. Thank you mister Waters, you are truly a gem among the demented <3
John Waters delivers a bat shit crazy hilarious film for true film lovers. Stephen Dorff gives a badass performance and Melanie Griffith was never sexier. Waters movies are never usually this sexy but for some reason this one gave me a cinematic boner.
