In this filmed version of cult film director John Waters' popular one-man show, the Pink Flamingos and A Dirty Shame director takes the stage to discuss everything from his early influences, fondest career memories, and notorious struggles against the MPAA rating system. Part endearing memoir and part hilarious lecture, This Filthy World touches on everything from the insanity of contemporary pop culture to the director's unforgettable early collaborations with inimitable Pink Flamingos star Divine. Captured live at the Harry du Jur Playhouse in New York, this performance is filled with the unique brand of outrageous insight and candid wit that has earned the so-called "Prince of Puke" an eternal place in the hearts of mischief-loving miscreants everywhere. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
don' really see this as a "documentary" - I mean it's just John Water's doing standup - using his own movies and life experiences to get some laughs and entertain. He does for the most part. There were some truly funny moments, but also some just not funny and you see that as he's in front of a live audiance - so there were moments that just fell FLAT...like a pancake - but amusing moments as well - he does push his limits - but this IS John Waters - so if you watch this and find yourself offended by it - well duhhhh! For John Waters fans and more of a Waters Filmography lesson than anything else.
