"I used to clip the condemned list and read it over and over. I could recite it, practically."
John Waters has, of course, gone from being an obscure zero-budget filmmaker to one of the most highly visible filmmakers in the world, even though he has not directed a film in 12 years. The life of cultural observer and raconteur suits him though, and he's a dream conversation partner.
Director Zach Clark, of whose film WHITE REINDEER Waters is a fan, does such a fantastic job of driving this Talkhouse conversation down some very deep filmic paths. When is the last time you've heard Waters go deep into his influences: Rossellini, Bunuel, etc? Clark takes you there. It's the best Waters interview in years.
