Waters was once referred to by a journalist as Cecil B. Demented, and
one gets the feeling that if he could get away with the plot of his latest
feature, he would!
Stephen Dorff stars as Cecil and along with his gang of renegade filmmakers
the Sprocket Holes kidnaps Hollywood superstar Honey Whitlock
(Melanie Griffith in her finest role since Working Girl) forcing her to
star in their underground film. The Sprocket Holes take vows of celibacy
for celluloid, and brandish their favorite directors' names as tattoos
(a practice started by our own Dreamland Fan Eve Severe!). The film is
extremely violent. There is rampant drug use, gerbil porn, terrorism,
hairdos on fire, a battle with teamsters, and parents who just don't understand.
Plus a soundtrack of rap, punk and Liberace! Here's Cecil's manifesto:
"Cinema terrorists - join the revolution against Hollywood movies!
From the empty seats of every good movie theater in America, we will rise
up and take back the screen. No english language remakes of foreign films!
No more movies based on stupid video games! No sequels to tiresome big-budget
blockbusters! Become an avenging angel for underground cinema! ... Stop
the mass distribution of mediocre movies! ... Sabotage the cinema, take
back the screen! Vandalize the movies, bring back the dream! CELLULUNATICS
AND CINEMA SURVIVALISTS, MAKE GOOD MOVIES OR DIE! DEATH TO THOSE WHO ARE
There are lots of cameos: legendary Dreamlanders Channing Wilroy, Patricia
Hearst, Susan Lowe & Mary Vivian Pearce; new Dreamlanders Dennis Dermody,
Tim Caggiano & Scott Morgan; and celebs like Kevin Nealon, Eric Roberts
and Roseanne Barr!
