This week, retro reviewers Danielle and Rina welcome
Danae and Gambit (from the D.E.B.S. review)
to the fray in order to give proper due to Watermelon
The film is a very important classic, as it
represents the first movie about the African American
lesbian experience. And despite it’s association with
a certain film of the same era (Go Fish),
Watermelon Woman was a hit with all the reviewers. Everyone felt that the film tackled important issues
(including race and representation) while still
managing to be entertaining and original.
Next episode, the ladies give Fried Green
Tomatoes the retro reviewing treatment.
