'Pink Flamingos'

'Pink Flamingos' TRASH: A live chicken is crushed and killed on-camera between two people making love. A human sphincter dances in time to the music. Semen gets injected by syringe. Oh, and a drag queen eats dog doo-doo. ART: It's all true. But director John Waters somehow manages to conjure a sense of bemused detachment and innocent fun that's the film's saving grace. It's like he's beside us all in the theater howling "Can you believe these people?" Fine Line Features
