Female Trouble is Coming to Criterion

.
John Waters' greatest film, 1974's Female Trouble, has been out of print on DVD for awhile now (they go for upwards of 40 bucks on Amazon) - it's something we've bitched about on many an occasion. When he got the great big retrospective at the Film Society of Lincoln Center a couple of years back I had a feeling the tide would turn on his movies being so difficult to own and soon enough his 1970 film Multiple Maniacs got a fancy blu-ray release... but today comes word (via the man himself at one of his shows - thanks Brad!) that Female Trouble will be getting the Criterion treatment sometime in 2018, and then the following year we'll see a release of Polyester. I could fuck a pair of needle nosed pliers right now I'm so happy! Merry Christmas, everyone!
