This being a film by John Waters no stunt is too outrageous and no idea is too grotesque, and whether you'll personally leave shocked or delighted is as always a case of your-milage-may-vary.

This genial, sometimes literally obscene mess is strictly recommended to hard-core John Waters fans.

For all its ostensible unpleasantness, Multiple Maniacs is cheapo, indie, queer American cinema at its most adversarial and thrillingly vicious.

Is it some kind of lost masterpiece? No. It's merely an interesting milestone on the path to Mr. Waters's better-known works ...

Negligible budget and poor framing and crap in the film gate and shots that go in and out of focus and all, "Multiple Maniacs" is a helluva movie.

Waters's legendary second feature, made in 1970, is back to show popular culture what punk provocation really looks like.

For newbies, this is the ideal place to start. Just do your best to pretend you're seeing it somewhere that isn't directly adjacent to a Jamba Juice.

John Waters interweaves his critique of noxious domesticity into the characters at the core of Multiple Maniacs.

Waters shoots the bravura blasphemy for shuddering passion and keeps upping the fervor

Uneven, to put it mildly. But when it is funny, it is priceless.
