Desperate Living Reviews
Coming across a perverted cop wearing women's lingerie while on the run, he directs them to Mortsville which consists of a shanty town filled with undesirables. Mortsville is run by Edith Massey (the lover of eggs from Pink Flamingos) who delights in humiliating her loyal subjects and shoving her dominating ways in their faces. Her gay soldiers are particularly hilarious in their attempts to satiate their queen. The movie culminates in some typical gory, but beyond funny scenes when the lesbians unite to confront the queen.
If you love John Waters and have never seen this, get on it ASAP.
Mink Stole should've been the lead role of more dark comedic films, but unfortunately this work of cinematic "trash" (meant in the best possible way!) stands alone.
I love this movie, and show it to people who aren't quite ready for something as obscene as Pink Flamingos, but still want to see John Waters at his best.
