John Waters reminds us where the wild things are
Filmmaker John Waters has long been a fixture in San Francisco. After a very rough week, a conversation with him gives us a few moments of levity courtesy of his sometimes twisted worldview. The 76-year-old writer, director, and curator of bad taste has made a career of showing us the weirdest of human behavior. In films including “Pink Flamingo,” “Mondo Trash,” and “HairSpray” and books such as “CarSick” he’s made us laugh or at the very least taken us briefly out of the day’s reality. He’s now written his first novel, “Liarmouth,” which continues the John Water legacy.
