Nice Look at Waters

Divine Waters (1985)

*** (out of 4)

This documentary was filmed by John Waters' POLYESTER was in theaters and features interviews with the filmmaker as well as Divine, Waters' parents and Edith Massey among others.

If you're a fan of John Waters then there's a lot of great material here, although there's certainly nothing ground-breaking about anything here. To me the most fascinating stuff deals with Waters' parents who are sitting with him as the three discuss his films as well as his early days. Waters discusses what it was like growing up with his parents and why they let him do weird things. It was rather funny hearing his parents talk about seeing some of his early movies.

The documentary has some very good stories about Waters and as usual the filmmaker does a great job at telling good stories that will hold your interest. The other great thing is that Massey and Divine are featured quite nicely here and especially Massey. The cult figure gets to sing a couple numbers here and we also get some footage of the premiere of POLYESTER.
