Review: Mr. Know-It-All by John Waters (Washington Post)


"On a grimy peninsula off the mainland of good taste, in a Baltimore far from the threatening realism of 'The Wire,' still reigning over his own personal filthdom, lives the original Pope of Trash, John Waters. The 'Hairspray' director may not have made a movie since 2004 but he has toured a successful one-man show, hitchhiked across America and popped up in movies from 'Seed of Chucky' to 'Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip.' Now he’s returned with a girthy new book of hot takes and shocking gossip."


For my full review of Mr. Know-It-All: The Tarnished Wisdom of a Filth Elder (Farrar Straus & Giroux, 2019), by John Walters, visit The Washington Post.
