DESPERATE LIVING
Waters | 1977 | US | 90m
“Carte Blanche: Cindy Sherman”
8:00 at MoMA

“Waters does not make organic trash for drive-ins: he makes films about trash, and about people who embrace it because society makes them feel like trash. What’s really exhilarating is that extent to which, by dint of sheer pig-headed persistence, Waters has managed to build something from trash components that does come close to being art. That’s an aesthetic victory to match the moral victory we glimpsed in Desperate Living, when a monster became a person. In the Waters canon, Pink Flamingos stands as the emblem of ‘shock value,’ Female Trouble as ‘crime as glamour,’ and Desperate Living as the harbinger of true trash art.”
David Chute, Film Comment (May/June 1981) [Read More]
