The world of the heterosexual is a sick and boring life.
I am at a complete loss to understand why this film was not nominated for an Oscar for costuming, makeup and set decoration. It had the most outrageous costuming that I have ever seen. The sets were so hideous that they made me nauseous. The makeup was beyond belief.
That was the good things about the film that featured an outrageous star in Divine, a transvestite that played Dawn Davenport. He was so over the top that I couldn't take my eyes off the screen.
This is the first John Waters (Hairspray, Pecker) film that I have seen. He is definitely on the cutting edge in outrageous humor, horror, and satire.
This film on the outrageous cult of celebrity is no more outrageous than the current obsession in the media with Paris Hilton.
If you haven't seen a John Waters film, check out the Sundance Channel for this one.
