This black comedy directed by John Waters is one of the best films around. When renegade filmmaker Cecil B. Demented vows to "punish bad cinema" his plans include a group of generally weird and freaky film buffs called the Sprocket Holes, who each have a tattoo of a different indie filmmaker, led by the radiant Alicia Witt, Demented's sometime-lover. Demented and his crew kidnap Hollywood's sweetheart Honey Whitlock and force her to perform in their rebel film and she slowly becomes "Demented Forever". Dorff gives a spectacular performance in the title role of this wacky, dark and hysterical take on both the commercial film industry and the indie film world. Keep an eye out for real-life kidnap victim Patricia Hearst and real-life drag king, Harry Dodge. Don't miss this film.
