John Waters is great. He truly just doesn’t even give a fuck. I’ve got the “Pink Flamingos/Female Trouble” double-disc DVD. It’s great. Divine was a madman (or woman, which ever way you wanna look at it). I’ve seen a lot of Waters’ work. Obviously, the two listed above, “Hair Spray”, “Serial Mom”, “Cry Baby”, “Pecker”, and “Cecil B. Demented”. The only movie of his I remember not liking was “Cecil B. Demented”, although, if I can recall correctly, I viewed it a long time ago when I was ignorant of how truly great the man is. Perhaps I should give it another chance.
I’ll get around to picking up more of his films on DVD someday. There are three or for of those double-disc sets out there. “Polyester” and “Desperate Living” look pretty cool, but I’d really love to see “Multiple Maniacs”. Sounds like a riot! Still waiting for “Cry Baby” to come out on DVD. By far my favorite Waters movie.
Who else could write a character named “Hatchet-Face”? Who else could use the term “cunt eyes” and a way of expressing endearment? Who else would film a man in drag consuming DOG SHIT? Anyway you slice it, the man’s a genius. Pure fuckin’ genius. LONG LIVE JOHN WATERS!
P.S. Anybody know if he’s gonna be doin’ somethin’ new anytime in the future?
