Not only does In Bad Taste include clips from early Waters monstrosities such as Female Trouble, Desperate Living, and the notorious Pink Flamingos, it also features footage from crossover successes like Hairspray and Serial Mom, as well as the more recent Pecker. And like Shock Value, it's full of behind-the-scenes information on what it was like to be on the set of a film by the Baltimore-based Waters.
Also included are interviews with performers from the Waters oeuvre: the ubiquitous Mink Stole, Patricia Hearst, Kathleen Turner, Ricki Lake, Deborah Harry, and Lili Taylor, not to mention Waters himself and crew members who have worked with him for years. Waters may be an acquired taste, but if he's one of yours, don't miss this unabashed tribute to him, which is followed, by the way, with a screening of Waters's 1990 Cry-Baby. (Screens 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, October 31, at Cinema Paradiso, Fort Lauderdale.)
