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.

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (10)

  • Very funny.

    September 29, 2007 | Full Review…
  • John Waters delivers a lecture, part-memoir, part-stand-up, on his life in movies, and proves himself an oddly winsome anecdotalist.

    September 29, 2007 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • As well as being a cult movie legend, John Waters turns out to be an excellent stand-up comic and all-around raconteur.

  • If you don't know what helicoptering and blossom are, they will be forever etched on your consciousness by the time Waters takes his bow.

  • 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.

  • Fans of his films will appreciate that Waters offers at least one witty anecdote about each.
