Another one of those Divine comedies

October 03, 2001|By Sun Staff

Female Trouble, the 1975 cult extravaganza from Baltimore's most notorious favorite-son filmmaker, John Waters, opens today at the Senator Theatre in a print that Waters promises is spiffier than ever and fuller than any available before, unless you bought six different video versions in various foreign countries and spliced them together.

Female Trouble was Waters' follow-up to the outrageous 1972 film Pink Flamingos.

The story is one of crime, beauty, and the depths of tragedy and comedy to which both can lead. It's all told in wonderfully bad taste.

The star is, of course, Divine.
