Pepi, Luci, Bom and Other Girls Like Mom

Director: Pedro Almodóvar
Year Released: 1980
Rating: 2.0

Trust fund gal Pepi (Carmen Maura) gets raped by a police officer for growing marijuana plants that are clearly visible (duh!) so she seeks revenge by getting his wife Luci (Eva Siva) to have a lesbian affair with punk rocker Bom (Alaska) - later, when money from her parents gets cut off, Pepi starts an advertising agency (... of sorts).  While later Almodóvar films would be a smidge more mature and refined, this flamboyant "comedy" had to have been, without question, influenced by none other than John Waters: you can see it when it tries to be transgressive (Bom urinates on Luci the first time she meets her, there's an erection measuring contest, etc.) and in the obnoxious performances by his ladies (the men are either homosexuals or rapists, there is no middle ground).  Still, the enthusiasm is certainly there ... although whether or not that's aided by (ahem) amphetamines is up for debate.
