1 disc, catalog # CC1362L

Lampooning the oddities of the American middle class with perverse glee, John Waters, once labeled the "Prince of Puke," now stays in the Hollywood mainstream--but just barely. His berserk tributes to America's trashiest aspects allow us to get in touch with--and enjoy--our inner suburban housewives.

Director John Waters is known for pushing the limits of taste with such cult hits as Pink Flamingos and Female Trouble. Polyester, Waters' hilarious big-budget breakthrough film, features the late great Divine as a housewife and Tab Hunter as her lover in a wonderfully raunchy parody of suburban life.

Criterion's Polyester includes:

  • A new widescreen transfer that does justice to Divine's heavenly performance
  • Audio commentary by John Waters, Tab Hunter, and key production people from Waters' Dreamland Films
  • Selections from Waters' private stock of photographs and promotional flyers
  • Rare John Waters' "No Smoking" public service announcement
  • A brief history of Odorama and other promotional gimmicks

** This title no longer comes with an odorama card.
