First show: April 09
Divine competes for the title of “The Filthiest Person Alive” in John Waters’ PINK FLAMINGOS, which earned its own title as one of the filthiest films in history upon its initial release. The gross-out black comedy finds Divine, AKA Babs Johnson, living with her family–egg-loving mom Edie, partner Cotton, and hippie son Crackers–in a trailer in the woods. Her life is interrupted when a couple of heroin-selling, hitchhiker-kidnapping, baby-selling criminals named Connie and Raymond Marble begin competing for her title, leading to a series of gross-outs and shocks that solidify the film as Waters’ most disgusting, over-the-top cult classic.
Written & directed by John Waters. Cinematography by John Waters. Art Direction by Vincent Peranio. With Divine, David Lochary, Mary Vivian Pearce, Mink Stole, Danny Mills, Edith Massey, Channing Wilroy, Cookie Mueller, Paul Swift, Susan Walsh, and Linda Olgeirson. 35mm. 1972. 93 minutes. NC-17.
