Polyesterqueer loox: The queer-feminist film series in Luxembourg
The world falls apart for a suburban housewife and “good Christian woman” as the money to support her lifestyle comes from her husband’s porno theater, the neighbors are protesting, her son is the notorious “Baltimore Stomper,” her daughter is knocked up by a local hoodlum, and her husband is having an affair with his secretary.
Polyester, by the pope of trash John Waters, is a satire of the melodramatic genre of women’s pictures – particularly those directed by Douglas Sirk whose work directly influenced this film – as well as a satire of American suburban life in the early 1980s.
