Dir: John Waters | US | 1981 | 86 mins
Cast | Divine, Tab Hunter, Edith Massey, Mink Stole

Presented in full Odorama with the accompanying scratch ‘n’ sniff cards, indie provocateur John Waters’ 1981 trash classic Polyester is a mordantly funny joy. Frequent Walters collaborator, drag queen Divine stars as suburban housewife Francine Fishpaw, whose world falls apart when her pornographer husband, Elmer admits he’s been serially unfaithful. Meanwhile her spoiled, slutty daughter Lulu has got herself pregnant, and her glue-sniffing son seems to be deriving a dubious pleasure from stamping on women’s feet. Waters’ delicious, flagrant bad taste – specifically designed to outrage middle America – is on full display in the marvellous Polyester
