John Waters United States, 1970

Jason's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

Who would have imagined in 1970 this era of ubiquitous hardcore pornography, anarchic international manifestations of incipient facisms (in concert w/, and at odds w/, seemingly endless permissiveness), and 4K restorations of MULTIPLE MANIACS brought to us by Janus Films? Well, nobody. I would hope. This is the end of 1969. And the beginning of the end of everything (and not just the counterculture). And what a joy!
