Quote of the Day: John Waters on Depressing Films


John Waters bow tie

“…I love a feel-bad movie…”


Legendary director John Waters, whose new book Carsick chronicles his adventure hitchhiking across America, shared this priceless quote with Entertainment Weekly when asked to name a favorite underrated movie:

“Bruno Dumont’s movies, which are all depressing French art movies about farmers and the earth and misery.  I love a feel-bad movie.  I hate to feel good at a theater.  There is such honesty in the pain he puts on screen.”
