ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Rating: B -- This bad-taste comedy put John Waters on the map as the propeht of low budget, trashy but signficant indie films Full Review
Waters works best with some restrictions on his license. He's much better as a subversive than he is an anarchist.
I am not giving a star rating to Pink Flamingos, because stars simply seem not to apply. It should be considered not as a film but as a fact, or perhaps as an object. Full Review
But what made Waters unique was the joyous quality of his work, the wicked delight he took in trashy obscenity. Full Review
Rating: A+ -- [VIDEO ESSAY] "Pink Flamingos" remains to this day the most cogently transgressive and anarchic film ever made. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- gag-inducing and breathtaking at the same time.
Description by OLDIES.com:
Babs Johnson (Divine) is a trailer park bon vivant who proudly claims the title "The Filthiest Person Alive." She's the envy of every neighborhood degenerate and it isn't long before another couple sets its sights on Divine's legacy. In the proud American tradition, competition forces each contender to outdo the other.
