“Kill everyone now! Condone first-degree murder! Advocate cannibalism! Eat shit! Filth is my politics! Filth is my life!” — Divine, Pink Flamingos

Long before reality shows and sex tapes, drag goddess par excellence Divine showed us how to become the most notorious celebrity in the world with John Waters’ taboo-demolishing Pink Flamingos. Here she’s on the lam as trailer trash crime queen Babs Johnson, who will stop at nothing to beat a competing couple and earn the crown of “Filthiest Person Alive.” Watch as Divine shoplifts, murders, and castrates her way into your heart! Gasp at Divine’s proto-punk sense of fashion! Marvel at her show-stopping finale with a canine co-star! If you still haven’t seen this all-time shock value champ on the big screen — with an appalled audience at your side — then you really haven’t lived at all.

Dir. John Waters, 1972, 35mm, 92 min.
