13. September 2011 Conversations with Filmmakers
As a film director, artist, and personality, John Waters (b. 1946) has worked at the forefront of American cinema for nearly forty years. Waters began making films in his hometown of Baltimore in 1964. His first shorts such as Hag in a Black Leather Jacket and Mondo Trasho demonstrated an innate talent at capturing the hideous and crude and elevating it to art. His cast of actors, the Dreamlanders, were featured in every subsequent film. The Dreamlanders would include his diva and partner-in-film, Divine, who would go on to star in Waters's most familiar works. Waters broke through to national acclaim with his "trash trio," Pink Flamingos (1972), Female Trouble (1974), and Desperate Living (1977). These films showcased poor taste, obscene cinema, and transformative approaches to politics, gender, and art. The films cemented Waters's status as a cult favorite and continue to play at college campuses and art house theaters to this day. Waters soon entered the mainstream with Polyester, the first movie filmed in a revolutionary new process: smell-o-vision. The film starred Divine as an unhappy housewife who romances a former teen idol played by Tab Hunter. Waters's commercial breakthrough, Hairspray (1988) told the story of Baltimore's televised sock-hop program, The Corny Collins Show, and how one brave girl (Ricki Lake) used her platform as a dancer to end segregation in her town. Waters would continue to write and direct films that pleased the mainstream but also showcased his unique approach to filmmaking. These would include Cry-Baby, Serial Mom, and Pecker. His recent work, such as A Dirty Shame, has veered toward his earlier obsessions with trash and obscenity. As a visual artist, he was given a retrospective at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in 2004 and shown at galleries around the world.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brought me back to midnight at the Elgin Theatre... 31. März 2012
Von WorkingTherapist/Recovering Screenwriter - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
...At least I think it was the Elgin, and I think it was a midnight screening, and Pink Flamingos was already on a rollercoaster ride in New York. A bunch of us staqggered uptown actually braving a trek above 14th Street-- and were thrilled by the film, shocked! And we were all in theatre school and thought we had invented, well, invention. These wonderful interviews, so beautifully put together by editor James Egan, were like a time machine to a place of discovery, comedy, irony, cool and fun. I especially love James Egan's interview with John Waters at the end of the book, the two of them discussing "kids today" and parenting. Like a wildly skewered moment in "Bye Bye Birdie." If you want to read about a true American Original, get this book, it's a lot of fun.

5.0 von 5 Sternen John Waters In His Own Words! 20. Dezember 2011
Von Nick Williams - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is part of the important and successful ongoing series Conversations with Film Makers. The interviews collected here are funny, shocking, and provided me with rare insight about "The Pope of Trash." It's hilarious and I laughed out loud. I read interviews here with Waters that I had never read before and would never have been able to find if the author had not had access to John Waters' personal archives.

I recommend this book to any Waters fans and anyone interested in learning about the history of John Waters. Recently I saw John Waters speaking at the Museum of Modern Art in New York about this important book and how he oversaw every detail including the front cover art.

This book makes a wonderful gift for beginners and long time fans, like myself.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Well-done career overview 20. Januar 2012
Von DavidT - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a very thorough and well-organized collection of interviews with filmmaker John Waters. The interviews span the entirety of Waters' career, and offer much detail about his films, up through his most recent feature "A Dirty Shame." The selections chosen by editor James Egan are varied, interesting, and revealing, neither overly academic nor simply gushing fan pieces. Another nice touch is the list of suggested reading that closes the volume, offering a list of pertinent articles for the reader who wants to know more about any particular Waters film. Recommended.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Funny Take on Brilliant Creative Mind 9. April 2012
Von Karen B - Veröffentlicht auf
This book is a wonderful read. It is well thought out and presented in a very understandable way. The collection is intriguing and covers the early years to date. What more could you ask for in traversing the unique world of Waters? I laughed all over the place. Egan's selections are terrific. It is not too professorial - simply a great look into a wide expanse of time. His tone is just right. Makes for wonderful reading and gales of giggles. The references are a boon also since the reader is able to peer more deeply into the unique universe that is Waters.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A Masterful Selection - Wildly Entertaining 24. Januar 2012
Von Carolyn M. Campbell - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
As a friend of John Waters and someone who was in "Polyester", I feel that I have a lucky insider's view of the life and work of this great artist and filmmaker. "John Waters Interviews" is by far the most comprehensive anthology of writings on Waters by some of the great pop culture authors of our time, including Fran Lebowitz. James Egan has masterfully selected an encyclopedic range of articles revealing the full scope of Waters' amazing career. A must read for anyone interested in the behind-the-scenes world of independent filmmaking from the 60s to the present as well as a wildly entertaining romp through the era. Egan's own contribution, "Where Will John Waters Be Buried?" reveals his unique personal access to Waters and displays a formidable talent as an editor, interviewer and overall creative genius.
