IF YOU LOVE DIVINE THEN YOU LL LOVE THIS.......
on 6 July 2009
I love this film. I showed "Lust In The Dust" in my own cinema on its release in 1985 on a double bill with "Body Double" What a long programme !!! Not everyones cup of tea, but I found the film hilarious and never tire of watching it again. Like all Divine films they stand the test of being able to re-watch. I must state that not everyone was as enthusiatic about the film as I was. When part of a tresure map is found on the backside of none other than Divine, then the hunt is on to find the other half. This comedy western then travels to a sleepy town called Chile Verde (which means green chilli for those who dont speak Spanish) and the utterly ridiculous turns comically corrupt. The film is deliciously distasteful fun and features Divine singing a bawdy love song. There is a brilliant supporting caste with Tab Hunter, Lainie Kazan, Geoffrey Lewis, Henry Silva and Cesar Romero. This is one of the films Divine did away from John Walters (in fact it was directed by Paul Bartel) it would have been interesting to see what John Walters would have done with this. No doubt Mink Stole would have have been somewhere in there and Edith Massey did audition for the part of the old saloon gal who want to go to Abilene, but was too ill to appear.
