Unwrap those cha-cha heels because The Rad Carpet is unfurling part two of its discussion on the early films of John Waters! Thom, Whalen, and CJ 5000 order up a double egg salad on white as they navigate the bizarre hilarity of Waters’ 1974 film Female Trouble, the follow-up to the director’s cult smash Pink Flamingos, while also taking a closer look at the life of Waters’ drag-queen muse Divine. But first, your valiant Carpeteers play a little “In or Out?”, firing up their takes on three leading men from Waters’ Hollywood era: Stephen Dorff, Edward Furlong, and the one and only Johnny Depp.
The Rad Carpet is, above all, a club, and we want you, the listener, to join in! Unfurl your own takes in the comments section below (or on our new Facebook page!): Do the increased ambitions of Female Trouble lead to diminishing returns for Waters? Are you “Cryin'” for the Dorff Man? Where do you stand on the lopsided filmography of Johnny Depp?
