You can't go to grad school in Baltimore in the latter half of the 80s and not hear of John Waters. And not see at least parts of some of his films. But I never liked any of what I saw enough to want to finish seeing any of them. At least in terms of some of his films, such as Pink Flamingos, I don't think I deserve the usual criticism when I say... Disgusting.

FWIW, I have seen pieces of several of his films, but Serial Mom is the only one I've ever sat down and watched. It's actually pretty good.

When she embraces, your heart turns to stone
She comes at night, when you're all alone
And when she whispers, your blood shall run cold
You'd better hide before she finds you...

A Dirty Shame (2004) - 2.5/5
Pecker (1998) - 3.5/5
Serial Mom (1994) - 4/5
Cry-Baby (1990) - 4/5
Hairspray (1988) - 3.5/5
Polyester (1981) - 3/5
(Waters does Douglas Sirk, too funny!)
Desperate Living (1977) - 4.5/5
(Underated since Divines not in it)
Female Trouble (1974) - 3.5/5
Pink Flamingos (1972) - 4/5
Multiple Maniacs (1970) - 3/5 Mondo Trasho (1969) - 2.5/5

I love Waters stuff.  No other director captures the shear joy of film making like he does.  Everything I've seen I own.

I copy and pasted the list, but the new forum wont let me change the bold and crap.  oh well.
