the best comedy of the eighties
27 March 2001 | by (Västervik, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I loved it! I ate it up, bit by bit! Paul Morrissey's painfully underestimated 1981 punk/commie/thrash-comedy may have come a few years to late (the thrashy and tacky white thrash aesthetics used in this film were already explored by John Waters in the 70's, and punk was getting way to over-exposed). But that doesn't matter since this is one of the funniest films of the 80's! It's the kind of film you just have to watch over and over until every act and line is memorized. Practically every scene in this film is notorious. And it's got a very original, great outlandish humor that almost got me killed the first time i saw it. For example we got a fat transsexual (perhaps not so original in this type of film) who talks about hamburgers for ten minutes, swap-market irony, disco dancing guru's and a homosexual man who quite literally like to polish his doorknobs all day long. The main story is centered around a young, beautyful communist man who is stranded i the U.S, looking for Jane Fonda. But the only things he finds are human thrash, money hustling and a never ending talk about the fabulous punk club-ownerer Madame Wang who is going to make them all stars. I'm not much for overanalyzing pictures so I leave you with these words: buy, rent or steal Madame Wang's tomorrow! If you have any kind of humor you will not regret it. I give this flick ten doorknobs out of ten possible.
