This review is from: Female Trouble [DVD] (DVD)
Takes the righteous god foresaken "right"; those who believe themselves to be "chosen". During this delusion they choose the big beardie non existent over their own children.

John Waters appears to see the seams, like no other, so he rips it all apart. by doing so he shows us the social pretension of manners with the gusto of 4 year old unwrapping Xmas paper, discovered in the wardrobe, two days before the 25th. John just plies away at the trimmings, peers into the box and then gleefully shows us the dirty underwear of life, detailing the big picture of trash aberration.

Divine excels within this tableau, as the self important mother who preys upon her precocious daughter in her will to power- the pushy mother. The sex scenes are done in full barphilia, as the "father," is a no good piece of trash with a rape complex. John does not spare the sacred.

This takes a blunderbuss to traditional American family values and lets the pepper shot spray across the screen in fine pin pricks.

A briliant cartoon portrayal of everything held dear, tender and sacred, as he parodies the later versions of Oprah, Kyle, Trisha, as toy dreams of TV success. Here he x rays the desire to be "someone" entails stepping on everyone else who is in the way. Bullying those deemed weaker also entails supplicating the self in front of those deemed more important to get the opportunity to climb to the top. John squeezes the last rancid drops from his "Carry on digging into the dirt" crew.

In and out groups, the desire to escape tedium at any cost, all get the Waters glare, and this is cynicallly funny when you finally get the joke, and who it is aimed at.

Watch, fry and sizzle.
