Pink Flamingos: What Was Waters' Intent With This Film?

Posted 9th October 2015 at 09:18 AM by Breez.e.blocks

The film Pink Flamingos is a 1972 cult film by John Waters.
I am studying the film for my A2 film studies course and I wanted to get people's ideas on it.

My hypothesis is:
Controversy For Controversies' Sake:
Are John Waters' films there to simply shock or do they have more to say?

What do people think? Focusing on Pink Flamingos, who thinks that Waters wants to simply shock, or who thinks he has more to say?

The Great Ecstasy of Robert Carmichael

Aaah, the United Kingdom. Home of football hooligans, happy slapping and indeed daisy chaining! If you are yet to hear of the latter then you should be chuffed to be living in a society that has some sort of control over its youth. Few British films in recent times have had the giblets to portray Britain as it is: preferring to revel in a cinematic bubble of Richard Curtis productions or Guy Richie clones. The Great Ecstasy of Robert Carmichael is about to change thatů Welcome to the jungle....
