Mondo Trasho (1969)
Critic Reviews for Mondo Trasho
A dry run for Waters' later outlaw-salvos, a bit of utterly ballsy dissonance, to be seen, heard, felt, suffered through
memorable only as the first serious outing of one of America's most provocative, fiery, satirical, and ultimately hilarious filmmakers
Audience Reviews for Mondo Trasho
I found it kind of boring, but it's hard to judge this film accurately 'cause it's so weird. I only cared about Divine, really.
If you get past the first 5minutes you've done pretty well. Still shocking and challenging to watch Waters created an interesting art-house flick with an all music soundtrack replacing any voice work. All Waters later elements are here with strong emphasis on perceived sexual, moral and social deviancy. An interesing look as underground film making in the 60's and for Waters fans an early look at many of his Dreamlanders first film roles.
Funny piece of crap. Divine is, as usual, great. I specially loved the Virgin Mary apparitions. The film goes nowhere and that's just good enough for me.
