Divine Trash

Director: Steve Yeager
Year Released: 1998
Rating: 2.0

Worth seeing for those interested in the "underground" cinema and in one of the "pioneers" of the 60's, Baltimore-raised John Waters. Slows down near the end and just stops at a certain point (nothing Waters after Pink Flamingos is discussed to any real extent), doesn't seem to cover as much material as you think it should (only snippets are given about Divine), and overly interested in the freak-show sensationalism of it all (look - a penis!), but somewhat interesting nonetheless. I hope, in the future, I can get to see documentaries about such rare underground artists like the Kuchar brothers, Kenneth Anger (who didn't want to appear ... why?) and Hershell Gordon Lewis ... or perhaps one day someone will come out with a whole underground anthology ... Ken Burns style?
