John Water’s PINK FLAMINGOS (35mm, 108 min., 1972)
The still outrageous and hilarious filmic molotov cocktail that defined “midnight movie” by giving an antic finger to any idea of taste. Divine plays the promiscuously criminal trailer trash outlaw Babs Johnson who stops at nothing to maintain her title as “the filthiest person alive.”
