First Viewings; Cecil B. Demeted

"Family is just another word for censorship!" Spouts a woman being forced to participate in John Water's Cecil B. Demented. The whole movie pokes fun at the Hollywood machine and the "Hollywood of the East" Baltimore Independent Waters'esk art house and porno flick, action watching theater-goers. Such a mouthful, as one can; describing any Water's movies. This movie takes us on a journey so fantasic we don't care who's going to die, or how will they be killed, it just makes us consistantly aware that each character is horny. Melanie Griffith plays Honey Witlock, the Patti Hearst of the Underground filmmakers. This is funny too, cause Patti Hearst herself plays as the mother of "Fidget" the 'both caps in the knee - first one to try leaving the filmmakers - pleasures himself' kind of kid. John Water's subject matter is such a bold slap in the face to so many issues and topics, I'm happy he gets them out there, so that we can talk about them and learn from them. Thanks for all the cherry pops.

i love john waters films, i just recently saw a low down dirty shame. It was great, although the early stuff can be bit hard to watch. I felt a bit ill at times in pink flamingos. One of my favourite movies of all time is Serial mom.

these movies are OKAY, but if you want the Waters Heaven... LISTEN TO THE COMMENTARY TRACKS. OMG... i roll off the couch listening to him talk over his films... the films should be rented for the commentary tracks alone... forget the dialogue tracks.
