John Waters Movie Marathon: Cecil B. DeMented


Not suitable for children

Freaks, outcasts and pill-poppers-they're all here. Cecil B. DeMented is an amusing outcry against Hollywood philistinism – an easy target if ever there was one. A motley cast includes Melanie Griffith, Stephan Dorff, Mink Stole, Ricki Lake and Patricia Hearst. The title character, an autocratic director and leader of a guerrilla troupe of cinema terrorists, suggests a mad Stalinist version of Waters' own background as an underground filmmaker and lends a new dimension to the term “cult director.”

Dir: John Waters / 2000 / R / 1h 27min
