Seriously warped, sick & fun
20 June 2000 | by (Detroit) – See all my reviews

You'll need to be in the right mood (something like "the entire world is on my last nerve") to fully appreciate this one. Better than most John Waters' films; same genre, if it is a genre. Capitalists may not get it, but for the rest of us it's a rare treat.
