Reviewer Charlie Largent ambles down Baltimore way to peruse John Waters’ scorching social satire about celebrity envy in all its monstrous forms. The depraved comedy charts the journey of suburban hell-raiser Dawn Davenport, a social climber for the ages. Starring the unforgettable Divine and Waters’ usual gang of Maryland Misfits, this 16mm epic from 1974 has been given a grand new Blu ray release that’s DeLuxe, DiVine and DeRanged. Co-starring Edith Massey and Mink Stole. On Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.
