Waters works best with some restrictions on his license. He's much better as a subversive than he is an anarchist.
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
Rating: 5/5 -- Seeing this movie seemed like having a dream of home, and the world of the movie made me feel like I'd found my true home. Full Review
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
Rating: 2/5 -- What was considered shocking in the 1970s seems benign today. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- gag-inducing and breathtaking at the same time.
It will take patience and a strong stomach to sit through, to 'take,' the whole. Full Review

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.
