Film Series: Pink Flamingos

1972. USA. Dir: John Waters. With Divine, David Lochary. 93 min.

 

Yes, Divine does eat dog shit at the end, but Waters’ cult classic has many more playful perversions up its sleeve. This black comedy chronicles a fight for the obscene, as an upper middle class couple scheme to steal a trash-talking drag queen’s title of “Filthiest Person Alive.”
