One way to achieve immortality is to create a work of art so beautiful that it is remembered through the ages. Another way is to create something so disgusting and awful that it also remembered for ages and ages, though for entirely different reasons.

It is simply not possible to watch Pink Flamingos and actually forget the outrageous activities that the film is littered with. The plot of Pink Flamingos, if you can call it that, is that there is a throwdown challenge to Divine's supremacy as the filthiest person alive! Divine eventually settles the matter in a climax scene that will forever be remembered.

Please keep barf bags handy when watching this film, for those used to big budget, slick Hollywood product, be warned, this is entirely at the other end of the spectrum. Someone once said that a John Waters film was like wallowing in a garbage can for a couple of hours. You virtually feel the need to shower once its over !

Of all his films, this one remains the most memorable and shocking. Divine having struggled through most of his life, finally achieved stardom and indeed respectability as an artist just before he died prematurely. Edith Massey, the fabulous "Egg Lady" of Pink Flamingos also died in the mid 80's thus Waters was deprived of two of his most amazingly "talented" pioneering stars.

This is pure rubbish, but groundbreaking and marvelously epic it is in equally proportions. A truly horrible film, but gleefully so. In fact when compared to something as hideous as Cannibal Holocaust, this is a work or art. Variety has a memorable description of this film... "one of the most vile, stupid and repulsive films ever made."

Isn't this the movie where Divine aka Babs Johnson eats dog shit? I remember a big to do about him doing that in ONE of the John Waters films. I'm not sure if it was this one or not!

Ciao,
