POLYESTER
Directed by John Waters

USA, 1981, 1h 26min, DCP
Evergreens
Help us celebrate 75 years of John Waters with these screenings of Waters’ transitional film. Between the technically crude early bad-taste rallies like PINK FLAMINGOS and FEMALE TROUBLE and the subsequent slick Hollywood-funded works like HAIRSPRAY and CRY BABY, John Waters made this paean to the Sirkian melodramas of the ’50s, starring members of his regular stock company including Divine, Edith Massey, and Mink Stole (as well as former teen idol Tab Hunter) in a story of suburban desire and its discontents. It’s hilarious. Waters at his best.
