Transgressive and completely unhinged. For its time, this is so political in just depicting these types of american lives, not to mention revolutionary for underground cinema. So vile and filthy that we must interrogate our understanding of sensibility. Obviously, there are many technical flaws but it's unrelenting boundary-destruction is intoxicating. This is pure counter-cultural art. Free Tex Watson xx
Do I love this film? I'm not sure. Can you love this film? Who knows. I know it's style and sensibilities are highly influential on my own film making, and I respect what it is with my whole heart. Waters isn't a director looking to make gay people like everyone else, and I appreciate that. Just like he said: back then "we were outlaws." I'd much rather be an unmarketable outlaw than a sanitized cameo in Avengers.
Yani bu film hakkında ne denebilir tam bilmiyorum. Hem güldüm hem iğrendim. En azından yönetmenin de amacının bunları uyandırmak olduğuna inanıyorum. Konusunun aşırı çizgi dışında olup ilk 10 dakikasında bile o realitenin içine çekmesi çok tatlı. Divine her anlamda mükemmel zaten ama izlediğim gerçekten de en zor filmdi galiba.
10/10 (Masterpiece) Probably the most important exercise on camp and bad taste, Waters “corrupts” us with this burlesque black comedy that succeeds to make everyone uncomfortable and destroys moral values, nothing is sacred and patriarchal morality is demolished. The importance of this film and Divine as a whole is beyond words and despite the over the top moments this is Water’s Opus Magnum!
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.
que linda pelicula, divine llega y les destroza los privilegios a todos sus enemigos blancos y hetero. 1 estrella porque no creo que ni la epoca ni nada sean excusa para maltratar a otro ser explotado (como lo son todxs lxs animales que aparecer en esta pelicula). siendo tambien disidencia waters no pudo tener esta consideracion??? me suena a otro a quien debiesen destruirle los privilegios
It deserves recognition for its whole senselessness and peculiar tone... But is there anyone talking about a more significant topic? The safety of those chickens (or any animals involved) should've been a major concern during filming. It's so sad that one of them actually died.
