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.
