The quintessential Waters experience sees the infamous Divine in three back-to-back-to-back trash classics.
Female Trouble – 6:30pm
Considered by many the crowning achievement of Waters’ early career, Divine is front and centre as Dawn Davenport, a petty career criminal who finds herself the unlikely muse of a beauty salon owner and aspiring photographer desperate to explore his deeply-held conviction that “crime and beauty are the same”.
Dir: John Waters / 1974 / R / 1h 29min
Divine is frustrated housewife Francine Fishpaw, clinging to sanity while tending to her dysfunctional family: philandering husband, Elmer; delinquent son, Dexter; and pregnant daughter, Lulu. But when Francine meets the dashing Todd Tomorrow (Tab Hunter), her chance at a better life seems a little rosier.
Rated: R / 1h 26min / Dir: John Waters / 1981
This underground film sensation is a heady dose of gleeful, knock-about fun based on a silly premise: Divine, living in a trailer under the pseudonym Babs Johnson, dukes it out with a couple of baby traffickers to prove herself “the filthiest person alive.” This is an essential film component of any Waters viewing binge, with plenty to enjoy, including a bizarre trip to a butcher's shop and a climactic speech about the politics of filth.
Rated: R / 1h 33min / Dir: John Waters / 1972
