I can't seem to pick from Serial Mom or Hairspray
Easy... "Female Trouble". It's Waters' masterpiece and Divine's greatest tour-de-force. There's actually a great deal of thematic depth and true pathos, but all without undermining the trash/exploitation element. Of his straight, mainstream films, I like "Hairspray". A good flick, but a pale reflection of the perverse glory of his earlier pictures.
Does'nt Divine have sex with him/herself in Female Trouble?
"Hairspray" to me is definately the best of all his films, with "Serial Mom" just behind it.
I honestly can't pick a favorite. Polyester was the first Waters film I saw, so it holds a special place... The perversity of Desparate Living certainly appeals to me, though I wouldn't rank it was one of his best. I have probably viewed Cecil Demented and Pecker more than any of his other works, and I love how they skewer the commercial film and art scenes respectively. Cecil has some of the best lines of his films: "Power to the people who punish bad cinema."
I like Desperate Living. Probably because it was the first John Waters I saw. Serial Mom would be a close second. Hairspray never did much for me, but I do enjoy it. John Waters is one of those guys whose films I enjoy, but you either get him or you don't.
Has anyone heard about his new picture with Tracey Ullman? "A Dirty Shame",this picture will be NC-17.
My faves are Female Trouble and Cry-Baby.
