These days John Waters is best known as the creator of Hairspray, but in the '70s he specialized in demented cult films starring a regular troupe of misfits known as the Dreamlanders. Desperate Living marks the boundary between Waters' cult film days and his ventures into mainstream moviemaking, with films like Hairspray, Cry-Baby and Serial Mom. Part fractured fable, part lesbian love story, Desperate Living is the story of a housewife who murders her husband and goes on the run with her maid. They take refuge in the psychotic kingdom of Mortville, where criminals are welcome so long as they follow the ridiculous rules of the evil Queen Carlotta. It's a wild ride and like nothing you've ever seen. With acting worthy of a high school play and an oversized serving of shock value, this is a classic example of the magnificent madness that can only come from the mind of the "Sultan of Sleaze," John Waters.
