    Pink Flamingos

    ★★★★

    Pink flamingos while not John Waters’ grandest achievement in story pacing (Female Trouble, Multiple Maniacs) The film is much more than just shock value, under all the grotesque imagery, innuendos and notorious stomach turning moments it has monumental importance to cinema.

    Wes Anderson's whimsical feature lets the imagination of a creative mind flourish supported by camp performances, hugely adding offbeat, priceless moments bouncing off Fiennes's most impeccably quirky role. I thought the hotel in the whole storyline is a disguise to cope with the immense cruelty of war times in glossy rich upper-class…
