Pink Flamingos ignores typical storytelling scenarios and inviting style. Instead, in technique and content, it's an ugly n' offensive attack on 'good taste'. Akin to the Jackass films in its escalation of stunts, yet where those films show stupidity, this shows real-life sexual fetish/taboo behavior. It's the alpha-and-omega, gross-out comedy, with such yuck factor it has become a drunken dare between friends.
I hope Baltimore isn't like this... Dear god, what a fantastically gross, completely audacious film. Loved it! Funny, disgusting, risky, fucked up and just plain old strange. Not for the faint of heart but certainly a must see just to believe it! I'm definitely gonna have to watch more films by Mr. Waters!
The actors performances are actually really poor, it just seems that they're spitting the script to us and they don't really feel it. they're like "omg. i'm so shocked. so shocked", there's too much (fake) drama. but this really is a movie that everyone should see before dying though.
