Movie Info

In this filmed version of cult film director John Waters' popular one-man show, the Pink Flamingos and A Dirty Shame director takes the stage to discuss everything from his early influences, fondest career memories, and notorious struggles against the MPAA rating system. Part endearing memoir and part hilarious lecture, This Filthy World touches on everything from the insanity of contemporary pop culture to the director's unforgettable early collaborations with inimitable Pink Flamingos star Divine. Captured live at the Harry du Jur Playhouse in New York, this performance is filled with the unique brand of outrageous insight and candid wit that has earned the so-called "Prince of Puke" an eternal place in the hearts of mischief-loving miscreants everywhere.

  • Waters' genial depravity, ear for a good line and fine comic timing easily engages for the full length despite the lack of flashy tricks, or indeed, any tricks at all.

  • This may just be a film of one of Waters' university appearances, but it's thoroughly entertaining as he takes a trip through his own filmography, hilariously revealing all kinds of truths about society along the way.
