John Waters United States, 1970

Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Multiple Maniacs

Even knowing the movies - and water’s - reputation, I still found myself shocked at moments. These weren’t as much the visual aspects (i.e. the puke eating, the lobster rape, etc.) but some of the insane things that are said. Things like a seeming confession to the extremely recent (at the time) Sharon Tate murder. The other shocker was just how funny it was. “I’m so happy I could shit!”
