John Waters Talks Religion, Popper Parties and Dildo Babiesnew

Employing off-the-wall, cartoonish characters, the father of a plastic child named “Bill” has made a career of delving deep into the smuttiest nooks of the human psyche, elevating lowbrow to new heights along the way and making audiences root for his hair-ratting, foot-stompin’ and shit-eating antiheros.

A Conversation With John Watersnew

Not long ago, John Waters acted out an airplane crash with a room full of first graders. The kids loved it. It was the same presentation he gives at prisons. Waters states he is proud of the fact that his work has no redeeming social value.

Head of the Classnew

Almodóvar's latest film is a lurid, contrived, gratuitously sexy (especially homo-sexy) thriller with a smirk on its face and a cigarette holder sinking hot ash into the shag carpet.

Waters Sportsnew

It’s a dirty shame that John Waters hasn’t made a truly offensive movie in more than 20 years. One can only hope that the NC-17 rated A Dirty Shame will change that.
