Glamour has never been more grotesque than in John Waters’ hilarious trash epic Female Trouble, which injects the Hollywood melodrama with anarchic decadence.

The fabulous Divine, writer/director Waters’ larger-than-life muse, engulfs the screen with charisma as Dawn Davenport, the living embodiment of the film’s lurid mantra, “Crime is beauty,” who progresses from a teenage nightmare hell-bent on getting cha-cha heels for Christmas to an out-of-control fame monster whose egomaniacal impulses, questionable parenting skills and murderous blood lust land her in the electric chair. Shot in Waters’ native Baltimore on 16 mm, with a cast drawn from his beloved troupe of regulars, the Dreamlanders (including Mink Stole, David Lochary, Mary Vivian Pearce, Edith Massey, and Cookie Mueller), this film­—the director’s favorite of his work with Divine—comes to life through the garish, tinsel-toned vision of production designer Vincent Peranio and costume designer/makeup artist Van Smith. An endlessly quotable fan favorite (“Nice girls don’t wear cha-cha heels!”), Female Trouble offers up a smorgasbord of perverse pleasures that never fail to satisfy.
