To call John Waters a cultural icon is almost insulting. This is a man whose entire career has been dedicated to the explosion of mainstream culture. But nonetheless, from his earliest films he has been the centre of controversy, acclaim, revilement and reverence. After all, he did direct the notorious Pink Flamingos (in which a twenty-two stone transvestite snacks on poodle poop), not to mention Female Trouble (in which Divine as a man rapes himself as a woman), as well as the crossover smash Hairspray (which introduced Ricki Lake to the world) and Serial Mom (in which Kathleen Turner murders Patty Hearst with a white pump). From the days when the press wouldn't return his phone calls to the present, promoting his films on everything from network morning shows to So Graham Norton and giving commentary on NPR, CNN, TNT and more, Waters has consistently been the outrageous voice of avant garde cinema.Here, critic Robrt Pela examines Waters's life and impact on our culture in this groundbreaking work - both a biography of Waters and his bizarre rise to infamy and a remarkable, often hilarious, but always illuminating look at his films, their impact and the not to be believed cult of Waters fans.
