Crackpot by John Waters

Book Description

Waters dispenses useful advice: how not to make a movie, how to become famous, how to have a sense of humour even if you've been sentenced to life in prison, and perhaps most appropriately, how to most effectively shock and attract the nation's public. He examines the fashion sense of those on trial, assesses the current state of indie filmmaking, warns us what he'd do if he were President of the United States, and recounts what's been getting on his nerves in the past twenty-four hours. Reading CRACKPOT is slumming in reverse. See trash transformed to art before your very eyes. Watch as lowbrow fixations are elevated shamelessly to a highly original comic manifesto.
