Hey Gang, The Primal Root here, and I am just so goddamn thrilled to announce our Deep Cult John Waters Turns 70 Double Feature I can hardly stand it! One night only, we will be watching John’s legendary exercise in bad taste, the cult classic, Pink Flamingos starring the the most beautiful leading lady the cinematic universe has ever known, the late Divine along with Mink Stole and Edith Massey. We’ll be following up this nauseating nugget of trash with another brilliantly gortesque and highly underrated entry in John Waters’ catalog, Desperate Living! Starring Water’s regularsMink Stole, Edith Massey and sex goddess Liz Renay, the first woman to ever perform a mother and daughter strip show AND the first grandmother to ever streak down Hollywood Boulevard.
I don’t want to say too much about these movies here, as I don;t want to spoil any gag inducing surprises. However, I will tell you this, the early works of John Waters are not for the faint hearted or easily offended. You will see things die, you will see male and female genitals and people devouring incredibly unsavory things. These movies are made to make you laugh, to shake you up, to repulse you by going to extreme places you never, ever imagined a filmmaker would take you. These films are beyond Trash, beyond filth, beyond anything you ever thought you’d experience in a darkened movie theater. What I am trying to say is that these films are the greatest kind of art.
So, I invite you to come out and celebrate the 70th birthday of the remarkable, the perverse, the brilliant Mr. John Waters with the rest of The Trash Cinema Collective@ This will be an evening of cinematic vulgarity you will never forget as long as you! Come on, Gang, Let’s Get Trashy!
