it was amazing

Strange enough I think I almost like John Water's writings better then his films. For sure more than his early films i.e. Pink Flamingos, etc. And I am one of the odd one's that love his later films more than his early work.

Nevertheless this is a mid-life John Waters looking back at his early career and it's hysterical. I think he's a great man. i wished he wrote more articles, essays, reviews, etc. He's a great wit.

I only really like "Crybaby" and "Pecker."

message 2: by David (new)

David I tend to think of Waters as a free-floating sensibility who most often expresses himself in film rather than just a filmmaker.

message 3: by W.B. (new)

W.B. The planet is a much happier place with John Waters...and Baltimore certainly needed a John Waters to lighten it up...
