FEMALE TROUBLE
1975, New Line Cinema, 89 min, USA, Dir: John Waters

Director John Waters’ follow-up to PINK FLAMINGOS, FEMALE TROUBLE is in many ways even more outrageous, a certifiable classic of politically incorrect, trailer-trash culture. Drag queen supreme Divine stars in a double role as juvenile delinquent-turned-sociopathic killer Dawn Davenport and macho loser Earl. Like Russ Meyers’ FASTER PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL!, FEMALE TROUBLE offers up more than its share of classic lines and bizarre, demented images. If you’ve only seen Waters’ later films such as HAIRSPRAY and PECKER, come get yourself an education on one of the subversive giants of American independent filmmaking!
