| Spreading the word in London
I've been a massive John Water's fan since I was 9 or 10 and I've loved his work ever since. The first John Water's film I saw was Serial Mom which I secretly bought with and watched at a friends house. It was love. I had finally seen something that made since. From that point I watched everything he made and ever since he has been my hero. He's always seems so unaplolgetically himself which is something I greatly admire. He made it okay to be a misfit. When I was 16 and out on my own I started hosting John Water's all nighters at my apartment. Starting at 10pm and going well into morning we'd watch everything from Female Trouble to Pecker. Now I find myself introducing his work to people in London that have never heard of him, which I find an absolute travesty.
At a point in cinema history where some of the best and most classic movies are being remade into shit (House of Wax, The Day the Earth Stood Still, ect...), it is so nice to know that there exists a man with some integrity.
