Published December 08, 2005.Very crudely yours, John WatersDirected by: John Waters(Alliance/New Line)John Waters never lost it, although his most recent film A Dirty Shame runs out of steam after 30 minutes. This very pink box collects Waters' New Line releases, from gutter punk nasties like Pink Flamingos and Female Trouble to the eventual indie respectability earned with Hairspray and beyond. The filmmaking is never as impressive as the unmistakable sweet yet satiric sensibility?particularly resonant in Pecker, which after seven years emerges as Waters' sharpest comedy.Mark PalermoCategories: Best of the year (2005)
