Jul 4, 2018

I don’t always pre-order films from The Criterion Collection; but when I do, John Waters is usually involved. Adding Female Trouble to their catalog, after the addition of Multiple Maniacs awhile back, makes me excited to see what else they may have up their sleeve. Female Trouble is the story of Dawn Davenport’s rise from...
