Thrifty Thursday $12
(1972, dir. John Waters, w/ Divine, David Lochary, Mary Vivian Pearce, Mink Stole)
This is the film with that famous scene that still has people looking up the term "coprophagia". If you don't know what that means then don't blame us when you find out! Divine stars alongside or perhaps against Raymond and Connie Marble in an incredible underground tabloid like pageant for the trashy sought after title of "The Filthiest Person Alive". This is one of THE defining films of American Underground cinema and the most iconic of Waters' work that helped him win the title "Pope of Trash". TJFILM INFO (Astor rating)
(2000, dir. John Waters, w/ Melanie Griffith, Stephen Dorff, Maggie Gyllenhall, Ricki Lake, Mink Stole)
Cecil B Demented will start at approximately 9:44pm, and finish at approximately 11:17pm.
The most demented of all of John Waters' movies, Cecil is an activity in anti-multiplex, anti-consumerist, anti-apathetic filmgoing. If you want to support independent film, independent cinemas and raw creativity then take a leaf out of Cecil's book and make a movie with a Hollywood star who goes rogue (after a Stockholm-syndrome style feralisation), aimed at the upper echelons of the money-making machine. This is parody at its most potent. TJFILM INFO (Astor rating)
