There's a flasher who ties sausage to his willy.
| Original Score: 2/5

What makes it all so cheerfully engaging are the larger than life performances from actors who are hardly professional but compulsively watchable, especially Waters' superstar, the irrepressible Divine.

a deranged home movie that took the midnight circuit by storm with its trashy excess, low-brow aesthetic, and raunchy delight in whatever perversions Waters could dream up
| Original Score: 3.5/4

I am not giving a star rating to Pink Flamingos, because stars simply seem not to apply. It should be considered not as a film but as a fact, or perhaps as an object.

The former midnight movie classic is still a goodtime grossout.

As a snapshot of American life, Waters was almost prophetic.

Pink Flamingos is, in its own unique way, the quintessential American Family Film. Not my family, certainly, and probably not yours, but a family nonetheless.

While the film now looks primitive and even more amateurish, it is laudable, if that's the right word, because unlike most movies being made these days, almost everything that happens in it is absolutely, horrifyingly real.

Waters works best with some restrictions on his license. He's much better as a subversive than he is an anarchist.
