Cecil B. Demented 2000

Cecil B. Demented

Critics Consensus

The idea behind John Waters' latest has much potential, but the movie ends up being too sloppy and underdeveloped in terms of script and direction. Also, by today's standards, it fails to shock.

Movie Info

An insane action-comedy about a young lunatic director and his devoted cult of cinema terrorists who kidnap a movie goddess and force her to star in their underground movie. Vowing to punish the crass sins of commercial cinema, fueled by revolutionary zeal and their self-imposed sexual frustration, Cecil B. DeMented and his guerrilla production crew invade the streets of Baltimore to shoot their no-budget epic. When Cecil says "Action," he means action! Nothing is going to stand in his way.

    At first, it seems like John Waters wants to make an audacious hate letter to mainstream cinema with some nice moments of brilliance, but then you realize his "revolutionaries" are a bunch of freaking tards and the film gets too over-the-top and all over the place to have a point.

    John Waters manages to take the piss out of commercial cinema, independent cinema, guerilla cinema, and cult cinema in one go. Everything you need to know is in the title. Genius!

    Not As Good As Waters' Ex Films, But Still Worth Watching!!! Watch out for Maggie Gyllenhaal!!!

    Now this is how you get a movie made. Artistic vision by any means necessary, even if it means taking hostages, shoot outs or celibacy for celluloid. That last one might be a little tough though.
