A Pure Trash Special

John Waters proudly beams from the cover of the latest issue of Sight and Sound and accompanying the interview with the Pope of Puke, is Tim Lucas' excellent primer on American Trash Cinema. "Sometimes in order to better appreciate the Sistine Chapel ceiling we need to revisit the gutter" Tim writes, getting his hands dirty with a dozen or so anti-classics, among them The Brain That Wouldn't Die, The Gore Gore Girls (which I must arrange a date with soon) and Doris Wishman's atrocity Deadly Weapons, one of the very few films that has left me genuinely depressed afterwards. All this trash talk has sent me sifting thru the dustbin this morning and I've just pulled out The Body Beneath. God help me...
