John Waters is my favourite director and i own all of his movies.....If you have seen his films tell us which is your favourite and why! My favourite is Female Trouble! Some of the most hilarious lines i have ever heard!

Pink Flamingos & Serial Mom.
Pink Flamingos, 'cause it pushes just about every boudary available to man.
I had no idea so many depravities could be jammed into one film.
And Serial Mom, 'cause I caught it at just the right age, the age of influence.

Female Trouble was pertty cool too. = )

Desperate Living, for the sheer joylessness of it all.

Nobody says:
"Crybaby" is a fun movie....and my second favorite, next to "Female Trouble".

Divine playing both the rapist and the victim was...hideously delicious. excellent.

Hairspray (the original, not that musical crap) and Serial Mom. I thought that Cecil B. Demented was a great idea for a movie, just poorly executed.

+1 ^ for Desperate Living!
Desperate Living carries it's pathetically dismal theme like a regal garment.
But some clips of Waters version of Wizard of Oz came to my attention and
as they were made when he was still in High School they're very raw. Basically
his gift is evident even in these earliest Super 8 clips.

You haven't seen Polyester until everyone in attendance is simultaneously scratching
the designated areas of their "lobby cards". The vile and pernicious Odorama® takes
the movie to a certain and special lofty domain that can't be imagined!

John Waters is the "It" guy for the end of days. Yet his charm is undeniable.

While I'm a huge fan of Female Trouble and Pink Flamingos and love playing these movies for newbies, I think Desperate Living is my favorite. Even though Divine isn't in it, the performances by Liz Renay, Mink Stole, Susan Lowe, Edith Massey as Queen Carlotta, Mary Vivian Pearce as Princess Coo Coo and Jean Hill as Grizelda are some of the funniest ever in a Waters movie. All hail Mortville! The opening dinner scene during the title credits is worth the price of the DVD.

Pink Flamingos-I was disgusted, repulsed, but was compelled to watch.

Polyester-the whole smell card gimmick was fun and because it was the first movie of his that I watch from beginning to end.

Female Trouble-Don't know why but I like it.

Pink Flamingos is my favorite, but I love them all!!!! His movies are amazing, his books are a god send, and to meet him in person was one of the most memorable days of my life. Mink Stole is wonderful too! If only Divine was still with us today... imagine where his career would be now! The morning he passed away he was supposed to sign a contract with the tv show, Married With Children, and have a male role that would re-occur as "Uncle Otto".

Desperate Living is my favorite, probably. But I also love Female Trouble, Pink Flamingos, A Dirty Shame, and Polyester. He's one of my favorite directors, along with Lloyd Kaufman and Wes Craven.

1. 'Serial Mom'
2. 'Hairspray'
3. 'Polyester'

I don't watch his 1970's oeurve willingly a second time - once is enough there. I'm a fan of John Waters the man more than Waters: Filmmaker. The ones I named are really good, but his last few were intolerable.

Desperate Living! In spite of it's grim and depressing tone, and though it kind of goes overboard with the scatology at times, it's still a great Waters flick. It has a very imaginative concept ( more of a fantasy, but done Waters style ), is one of Waters most visualy lavish and striking films, and features some of the funniest ( albiet nasty ) scenes he's ever writen,.. particularly the spanking scene ( "Over my knee with that behinde!!! .. This'll teach'ya to arouse royalty!!!! .. Now GET OFF stupid!!! .. I hope you didn't leave any pecker-tracks on my gown!!" ). I also like both Female Trouble and Multiple Maniacs a great deal.

I really liked Desperate Living and Female Trouble as well. Unfortunately, I haven't seen Multiple Maniacs and it isn't available on DVD.

Desperate Living is my favorite. It's the most disturbing of his films and has a great soundtrack. I also think it's Mink Stole's best performance.
