My movie year 2014 (598 movies items)

"27.7. (PC) Jatkaa John Watersin anarkistista linjaa, mikä takaa joukon löysän juonen ympärille kieputettuja surrealistisia, hyvän maun päälle oksentavia kohtauksia. Näistä mainittakoon sukupuolileikkauksessa käynyt nainen, joka leikkaa peniksensä irti ja heittää sen pihalle koiran syötäväksi, murhaajat vapaaksi alushousuja vastaan päästävä pervertikkokyttä sekä gangsterien paratiisia johtava fasistikuningatar, joka mm. pakottaa alamaisensa nielemään torakoita sekä pukeu"

Ugliness and demeasure in cinema (119 movies items)

" In Waters cinema, the extreme theatricality of the characters plays with grotesque. Desperate Living is one of his most carnavalesque movies."

" By far my favourite John Waters film. I absolutely love this movie! It's trashy and vile with a fantastical plot - but the characters - OMG, the characters. Totally off the wall. I know dialogue from this movie like we all do from Monty Python's "Life of Brian" - it's an experience you won't forget :)"
