PART 2 OF OUR “THROWBACK THURSDAY” RETRO DOUBLE-FEATURE!
John Waters’ gloriously grotesque, unavailable-for-decades second feature comes to theaters at long last. Made on a shoestring budget in Baltimore, with Waters taking on nearly every technical task, this gleeful mockery of the peace-and-love ethos of its era features the Cavalcade of Perversion, a traveling show put on by a troupe of misfits whose shocking proclivities are topped only by those of their leader: the glammer-than-glam, larger-than-life Divine.
My Life is a Dream | Directed by: Brian Benson | 2016 | United States | 7′
Perky Cousin Wonderlette never imagined she’d meet the man of her dreams so when her dreams turn into nightmares she’s not so surprised. In this dark comedy, we follow sweet Wonderlette on a disturbing journey to creepy places where she encounters demented housewives, greedy swine, sexual deviants, and worse, her drunk mother.
