X-Rated Double Feature! Director John Waters’ FEMALE TROUBLE is a certifiable classic of politically incorrect, trailer-trash culture starring drag queen supreme Divine in a dual role.

Director John Waters’ follow-up to PINK FLAMINGOS, FEMALE TROUBLE is in many ways even more outrageous, a certifiable classic of politically incorrect, trailer-trash culture. Drag queen supreme Divine stars in a double role as juvenile delinquent-turned-sociopathic killer Dawn Davenport and macho loser Earl. Like Russ Meyers’ FASTER PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL!, FEMALE TROUBLE offers up more than its share of classic lines and bizarre, demented images. If you’ve only seen Waters’ later films such as HAIRSPRAY and PECKER, come get yourself an education on one of the subversive giants of American independent filmmaking!

The roaring follow-up to FRITZ THE CAT, HEAVY TRAFFIC offers up another highly personalized view of urban America, this time centered on Michael, a down-and-out cartoonist drowning in the sounds of the city around him - pimps, pushers, provocateurs and more.
