John Waters on His Rise From LSD & Cruising to Celebrating 50 Years of Filmmaking at Lincoln Center x4My movies, I made them just with my friends, the way every kid today makes a movie with your cellphone. I just started out doing it and they were basically made to startle people with their own values. People who thought they were open minded, I wanted to make fun of their limits and play with the boundaries of whatever was correct at the time. We were always making fun of the peace and love movement—and even though I certainly looked like a a hippie, I was more of a yippie. I would go to riots, but not so much for the political thing, I would go to get laid. Riots were a great place to make a date, you could always find people at riots. So it was always great cruising at riots. I tried to take that the spirit and make fun of it and make fun of myself by calling my films trash. Critics couldn’t say they were trash because I already said it.
