    I ask this question every now and again here on SF and I've yet to have anyone say they did.

    "Has anyone seen the John Waters film, Pink Flamingos?

    Pink Flamingos - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Now, either I must be the only perv that's come and gone from SF in the last 5 1/2 years that's sleazy enough to have seen it OR people just don't want to admit they've seen such a nasty little movie. I find that hard to believe considering the cult status of the film.

    Anyone wanna fess up and say they saw it, yet?

    I saw it a while ago. I thought it was interesting; but I didn't think that it was very novel.

    Though I'll add that my favorite part was when they were having sex and the chicken was used until its death.

    I'm proud to admit I saw Pink Flamingos, Polysters, Cry-Baby, Hairspray, Desperate Living, and Serial Mom in high-school. :] I also heard of panties that say "John waters my bush" across the crotch...I'd like a pair!

    Then, you have not lived!

    Really? Are you saying that a 300 lb. transvestite eating dog shit isn't a novel thing to you? A flasher with a turkey neck hanging off of his dick isn't novel t you either, I suppose? What kind of people do you hang with, man?

    :bow

    One of my favourite parts of Serial Mom :

    Dottie Hinkle: Hello?
    Beverly Sutphin: Is this the Cocksucker residence?
    Dottie Hinkle: God damn you! Stop calling here!
    Beverly Sutphin: Is this Four Two One Five Pussy Way?
    Dottie Hinkle: You bitch!
    Beverly Sutphin: Now let me check the zip code. Two-one-two-fuck-you?
    Dottie Hinkle: The police are tracing this call this very minute.
    Beverly Sutphin: Well, Dottie Hinkle, then why aren't they here, huh, fuckface?
    Dottie Hinkle: FUCK YOU!
    [hangs up]
    Beverly Sutphin: Bwaahahahaha!
    [immediately calls her back]
    Dottie Hinkle: DIDN'T I JUST SAY FUCK YOU?
    Beverly Sutphin: [in a different voice] I beg your pardon?
    Dottie Hinkle: Who is this?
    Beverly Sutphin: Mrs. Wilson from the telephone company. I understand you're having problems with an obscene phone caller?
    Dottie Hinkle: Yes, I am. I'm sorry, Mrs. Wilson. But this is driving me crazy! I've had my number changed twice already. I'm a divorced woman, please help me.
    Beverly Sutphin: Well what exactly does this sick individual say to you?
    Dottie Hinkle: I can't say the words out loud, I don't use bad language.
    Beverly Sutphin: Oh well, I know it's difficult but we need to know the exact words.
    Dottie Hinkle: I'll try. COCKSUCKER, that's what she calls me.
    Beverly Sutphin: [reverting to the original voice] LISTEN TO YOUR FILTHY MOUTH, YA FUCKIN WHORE!
    Dottie Hinkle: GODDAMN YOU!
    Beverly Sutphin: MOTHERFUCKER!
    Dottie Hinkle: COCKSUCKER!

    Never heard of it before, but it sounds interesting enough.

    It's more so what I watch. That and a lot of controversial things have happened in history. Greece, Rome, Norse areas, etc. While it's something Tipper Gore would detest and want expurgated from cinema forever- it isn't something that phased me much.

    lol Barb! Serial Mom is one of my favorites and that part was awesome!

    I realize that Waters was trying to push social norms back in the day (which he succeeded) and there isn't any real substance to the earlier work but I love him nonetheless. I think John Waters is one of the original pioneers for indie films and deserves the cult following he has produced through the years. He definitely marches to his own drum and feels no reason to apologize for it. :]

    My problem with Walters' work is that it's VERY easy to go against the grain and push a social envelope in an attempt to set one's self aside from the normal status quot.

    I'm not saying his work is worth shit; but it isn't interesting.
