Cecil B. Demented is a 2000 black comedy cult film written and directed by John Waters. It stars Melanie Griffith, Stephen Dorff, Alicia Witt, Adrian Grenier, Mike Shannon, and Maggie Gyllenhaal. The title - which is also Dorff's character's name - is a play on the name of famous director Cecil B. DeMille. The film is loosely based on the 1974 kidnapping of Patricia Hearst and, like all of Waters' films, was shot in Baltimore, Maryland. The film was given a limited release in North American cinemas on August 11, 2000.
The film centers on a Hollywood starlet who is kidnapped by a gang of bizarre filmmakers who force her to star in their underground film.
For her role as Honey Whitlock, Melanie Griffith was nominated for Worst Actress at the 2000 Golden Raspberry Awards.
ollywood A-List actress Honey Whitlock (Melanie Griffith) is a famous star whose public persona is that of a sweet and considerate woman, but who, in reality, is demanding and mean. While in Baltimore to attend a premiere, Honey is kidnapped by the manic film director, Cecil B. Demented (Stephen Dorff), and his band of misfit, Andy Warhol-worshiping artists who have branded themselves "kamikaze filmmakers," going by the group name "SprocketHoles."
Honey is introduced to Cecil's eccentric friends - who also act as his film crew - and is taken to an abandoned movie theater, where she's kept captive. Cecil's crew of outlandish followers include a porn star (Alicia Witt), a gay trucker (Mike Shannon), and a Satanist (Maggie Gyllenhaal), among others. Cecil explains that he wants to make his masterpiece film ("I have a vision!") and needs Honey to star as the film's lead. Honey first resists and shoots scenes with no emotion, but Cecil slowly coaxes her into relaxing and truly acting.
As Honey seems to become more comfortable with her situation, she watches a special on TV discussing her disappearance. Persons who knew her, including her ex-husband (Eric Roberts), are interviewed and come clean about how mean-spirited she truly was. Honey now realizes that her desire to escape would only lead her back to Hollywood, where she is hated for being rude. She decides to finish the film no matter what and declares herself "Demented forever," burning a brand into her arm and officially joining the motley crew.
Cecil, Honey, and the crew run around the city, filming scenes at real (unapproved) locations, often involving innocent bystanders in the process. Some shooting locations turn into shootouts with police, with crew members getting shot. At the climax, Cecil is shooting the final scene at a local drive-in while law enforcement are alerted. He asks Honey to light her hair on fire for the final shot (which she does) before setting himself completely ablaze as police arrive. In the ensuing chaos, some crew members escape with the raw film footage while others are shot. Honey is taken into custody and is taken aback from the new affection and devotion people have for her as she goes into the police van.
