Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

After forming a match made in trash-movie heaven in John Waters's Polyester, Tab Hunter and Divine reunited for this deliciously tasteless Western comedy, which borrows its title from the nickname for Duel in the Sun, the turgid Western that inspired director Paul Bartel's affectionate spoofery. With Hunter wearing two hats as hero and coproducer, the movie indulges its own outrageous excess while staying true to the dustiest traditions of the Western genre. It's just good enough to watch without shame, and rude enough to hide from more offendable members of the family.

Nothing's sacred in Chile Verde, the wild western town where lone gunman Abel Wood (Hunter) arrives after rescuing corpulent saloon singer Rosie Velez (Divine) from being defiled by Hard Case Williams (Geoffey Lewis) and his gang of misfit gunslingers. Saloon owner Marguerita Ventura (Lainie Kazan) gets hot 'n' heavy for Abel's wood, and passions flare up in a race for hidden treasure, the map to which is tattooed in two sections on Rosie's and Marguerita's ample posteriors. To reveal more would spoil the wretched hilarity; one needn't love Westerns to enjoy this pig-wallow of a comedy, but it helps if you know the legacy of screen villains like Henry Silva, who's riotous here while barely shifting his vile expression. No doubt, this is the wackiest Western that ever cooked under the "blistering, burning, blazing, scorching, roasting, toasting, baking, boiling, broiling, steaming, searing, sizzling, grilling, smoldering, very hot New Mexico sun." --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars My idea of side splitting funny material...... May 6, 2004
Format:DVD
But that's because I happen to think you can't get much funnier than casting a very overweight white male (who thinks he's a female) as a side-saddle burro riding Mexican plus sized siren named Rosie Velez, who is on her way to the dusty desert town of Chile Verde. Miss Kazan, one of moviedoms most underrated comedic actress', shines with her usual brilliance. Definately one of my personal top ten rated comedy pictures of all time. Which means it's right up there with "Some Like it Hot" "Dinner at Eight" and "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World".

4.0 out of 5 stars Chile Verde Revisited April 2, 2001
Format:DVD
Being a huge fan of late greats Divine and Paul Bartel, I've been a fan of this film for many years. I just purchased the DVD edition of this film and was pleasantly surprised by the packaging and information on this disk. The menus are adorned with huge, scary close-ups of Divine's face with the Lust in the Dust theme song playing over the menu selections. It's pretty great! But, best of all, is the 16 minute featurette, More Lust Less Dust which features interviews with stars Tab Hunter and Lainie Kazan as well as other people related with the project. They talk about the fun atmosphere and location shooting (highlighted with stills and home movies) and feature many rare images of Divine and Bartel. The most interesting aspect in the documentary was the discussion of how they wanted to keep the film from being a "John Waters film without John Waters" and the very surprising footage of Edith Massey's screen test for the film! Ultimately, she wasn't used. All in all, a great and funny disc (and at times a touching tribute) that wonderfully displays many of the talents of these two talented (and underestimated) men; Divine and Paul Bartel. We will miss them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cat fight in a one dog town April 8, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I first saw this on the big screen. It was funny then and it is funny on the video screen. A spoof of the Clint Eastwood save-the-fair-maiden from the bad guys medium sized epics. Geoffrey Lewis is a good bad guy. Lanie Kazan is excellent as the tough girl who fights mano a mano with our heroine the petite-plus Devine. Cesar Romero has almost as much fun being serious as when he was The Joker. And, there is dust and occassional lust and a town that looks like it needs The Magnificent Seven. I still enjoy seeing this one at least once a year. It is a good choice for college age types who don't want to think too hard after a tough exam. If you like this one, be sure to catch Tab and Devine in Polyster and Devine in Hairspray.

Lust In The Dust is an excellent spoof of western films with plenty of laughs and great entertainment. Many people mistakenly believe that this is a John Waters movie; it is not. Tab Hunter was one of the producers and he plays tough, mysterious gunfighter Able Wood as well.

But already I am getting somewhat ahead of myself. The action actually begins when we see Rosie Velez (Divine) struggling in the heat of the desert with her mule as she tries to get to Chile Verde in New Mexico. Soon she meets up with a rough and tough silent type cowboy who turns out to be the very famous Able Wood; and together they enter Chile Verde.

Rosie wants a job as a singer at the only saloon in town owned by Marguerita Ventura (Lainie Kazan); and the catfights start right from the word go as Rosie and Marguerita don't exactly get along. Sure, Rosie gets a job--scrubbing floors in the saloon, that is! Meanwhile, Able turns out to be in Chile Verde to find the long lost gold treasure allegedly buried there. Although the town's priest (Cesar Romero) denies that the gold treasure actually exists, soon almost everyone in town reveals that they are really there just to find the hidden gold treasure.

Of course there are many laughs along the way. Rosie sings a hilarious song as she auditions to sing in Marguerita's saloon; and Able spars with Hard Case Williams (Geoffrey Lewis), a rough and tough man himself--who is always quoting intimidating passages from the Bible. We get fight scenes and the inevitable race for the gold.

It may seem like I gave it all away; but I really didn't. Look for some very funny scenes with the piano bar player Red Barker (Courtney Gains) and the race for the gold treasure could make any one of several characters--or more than one person--very rich fast.

5.0 out of 5 stars LUST IN THE DUST is a wicked must! November 22, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
One of the funniest films of the 1980's. By far Paul Bartel's best work. Seeing Divine sing THESE LIPS ARE MADE FOR KISSIN' is worth the price of the DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars "I've had carnal knowledge of 215 women and 2 goats." February 4, 2006
Format:DVD
On the road to Chili Verde Divine hooks up with Tab Hunter, once there they learn of the legend of the gold. Guns fights, cat fights and sexual hijinks follow but it's all too tame. The first 15 minutes are fine with Divine swimming bottomless then wearing out four rapists, but soon the focus of the film drifts away from the campy stuff and goes more about the story of the lost gold. Who cares about the gold?! I want to see Divine half-naked and singing and eating pie underwater and maybe biting a midget on the foot, not searching for gold.

I respect Paul Bartel, but I think John Waters would have been better for this movie. Yea, I know he turned down the job but that doesn't change the fact he probably would have made a better film. At least it would have been cruder and campier and that's what we want right?

Also Gina Gallego didn't have a big enough role.
