Pink Flamingos ★★ 1972 (NC-17)

Divine, the dainty 300-pound transvestite, faces the biggest challenge of his/her career when he/she competes for the title of World's Filthiest Person. Tasteless, crude, and hysterical film; this one earned Waters his title as “Prince of Puke.” If there are any doubts about this honor—or Divine's rep—watch through to the end to catch Divine chewing real dog excrement, all the time wearing a you-know-what-eating grin. 95m/C VHS, DVD . Divine, David Lochary, Mary Vivian Pearce, Danny Mills, Mink Stole, Edith Massey, Cookie Mueller, Channing Wilroy, Paul Swift, Susan Walsh, Linda Olgierson, Elizabeth Coffey, Steve Yeager, Pat Moran, George Figgs; D: John Waters; W: John Waters; C: John Waters; Nar: John Waters.
