Welcome to John's filthy worldBy GreenwichPaul (49 reviews) from London , 29 Oct 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Anybody who has ever been to one of Waters' talks will know what to expect from this hilarious talk about his career to date. He talks about his films, the charcters he has worked with in them and some of his obsessions; from trash cinema to bizarre sexual practices.
The director keeps the camera trained on Waters,.interspersed with just a few brief cut-aways to the audience. The pace of Waters delivery and his wonderful stories ensure that boredom never sets in. Terrific and very very funny.

Definitely not watered downBy CelluloidJustice (17 reviews) from Brighton, England , 01 Sep 2009Waters has made some of the most appalling (in the nicest way possible) masterpieces of the last fifty years, and is fiercely proud of his title as the Grandaddy of Trash. I find Waters' work superbly entertaining, and seeing the cogs whirring behind the filth machine is a brilliant thing.
His stories grate sometimes and they become quite repetitive, but his manner is always engaging if a little irritating (then again, isn't that the point of John Waters?) and his stories often tickle the palette (and are intensely graphic, as one would expect.) The most disturbing aspect of his stage show is his pencil moustache. My only gripe is his sarcastic asides often felt a little forced and unnatural. Then again, what about Waters IS natural? A very entertaining hour and a half.
Master of filthBy a customer from London , 29 Dec 2008I've loved John Water's films for years, and even met Divine on one occasion, but I've never seen the guy himself, so this was a new and highly amusing experience. he looks very sick and clean, in his trendy jacket (Vivienne Westcott) and narrow pants, but has no inhibitions when it comes to tlaking dirty.
The show is probably better seen live, but I found it informative and entertaining.
This Filthy WorldBy chunkystu (15 reviews) from Brighton , 26 Aug 2008The best part of this dvd was the question and answer part with the audiance. This was very entertaining and fun.
John Waters surprised me as he is a very confident speaker and could have been an actor in his own films I think.
Only OkBy zand20s (69 reviews) from Leicester , 16 Aug 2008Funny in parts, think you have to be a REAL fan to be in on all the jokes around his movies.
John WatersBy flickv (1 review) from Brighton , 14 May 2008What a lovely man and just the best advice for life, no-one under 25 should wear labels they are just to make old people look good, if you're young you look great in a band aid. Worth it just for what he says about the Wizard of Oz, why would Dorothy go back to that dreary old woman in black and white when she can have great shoes and flying monkeys.
