Histoire(s) du cinéma: Pardo d'onore Manor John Waters

Pink Flamingos

USA  ·  1972  ·  35 mm  ·  Color  ·  93'  ·  o.v. English

A criminal hides out in a trailer park with her family of degenerates. She is hell-bent on retaining her title of “the filthiest person alive”, and will stop at nothing to humiliate, torture, and ultimately wipe out her competitors.


You would think that four decades of lesser imitators might have blunted this depraved 1972 filth fantasia’s ability to shock and appal. You would be wrong to dispel such misguided thoughts, you need only to sit down with it once again. While Waters’ subversive humor has been wholly co-opted by the mainstream, the hilariously amoral ugliness at the dead center of this film’s universe will never lose its disturbing edge.

Christopher Small
The print is the 25th Anniversary Edition which was released in 1997. For the 25th anniversary Fine Line went back to the 16 mm CRI and made 35 mm OCN which was then used to make printing elements. This film features scenes that could shock the sensitivity of some viewers. Not suitable for those under 18 – ID check upon entrance.
