Delightful. Made me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Celebrations of freakishness and deviancy. It was also a treat to read the screenplay for the sequel to "Pink Flamingos," which never got produced -- I was able to imagine all of the sets and characters vividly in my head. But I agree with what John wrote in his introduction, there was no way he could have found an actor to replace Edith Massey after she died.
I had so much fun with this! Pink Flamingos is one of my favorite movies and I already knew most of the lines but I couldn't resist anyway. I have never had the balls to sit through Desperate Living, but now that I've read the script, I just may have to do it! And...the unfilmed sequel to Pink Flamingos entitled Flamingos Forever...oh, how I wish that had been filmed! I laughed so hard...John Waters, you rule!!!!!!
John Samuel Waters, Jr. is an American filmmaker, actor, writer, personality, visual artist and art collector, who rose to fame in the early 1970s for his transgressive cult films: Pink Flamingos and Hairspray. He is recognizable by his pencil-thin moustache.More about John Waters...
