FILTH IS MY LIFE

A JOURNEY THROUGH THE FILMS OF JOHN WATERS

The BFI are showing a retrospective of the work of iconic filmmaker John Waters this month, including his rarely seen early short movies. We caught up with the living legend to discuss every goddamn one…

Hag in a Black Leather Jacket (1964)

There was no shocking memory but it was MADE! I didn’t know there was editing, I thought what came out of a camera was the final cut. And in this case, it was.

It was never reviewed. It was only shown once in a beatnik house and the next time it was shown was at Lincoln Center last year [laughs]. No, there was no reviews of that movie, no one took notice really.

I’m a believer in Dogme 95, I wanted Lars von Trier’s insane theory to go. I wish all movies weren’t edited at all – just whatever came out the camera was it.

It’s not even a film, it’s more like it’s being shown in, I guess, a historical context just to see kind of what a home movie was like. I lived in my parents’ house when we made that, none of the Dreamlanders are in it except Mary Vivian Pearce. She’s the only one that’s been in every single one of the movies and she IS in it, she’s the only one. The rest are high school friends that I quickly just really moved away from [laughs].

Roman Candles (1966)

About Gay Times

Summer may be nearly over but fear not, the GT September issue is officially turning up the heat with English ruby star James Haskell. Bursting out of a glass box and straight onto the cover, James’s appearance in GT is timely given Keegan Hirst having recently come out at the first openly gay rugby league player. James has long been an advocate of the eradication of prejudice in sport and had this to say about Keegan’s decision to come out: “It took real strength and courage for Keegan to come out. He’s a tough guy, and the fact that his team mates, the fans and everybody has taken it so well shows that it can be done. And it shows that your sexuality really shouldn’t matter when it comes to playing sport.” Also in this issue: Keegan Hirst Kinky Boots John Grant Gay asylum seekers Cel Spellman Rebecca Root Natalie Imbruglia Kerry Ellis Jaymi Hensley And all the very best in style, tech, grooming and entertainment
