Here’s John Waters’ picks for the best films of 2006. I like these capsule reviews, such as this:
Sherrybaby (Laurie Collyer)
Maggie Gyllenhaal plays an ex-convict drug addict (the kind I see in Baltimore every day), and the film is so depressing and great that I wish I could see it with an all-female prison audience.
That’s pretty much all you need to hear. If I ever get elected Prime Minister of the USA, I’m appointing John Waters as Minister of Culture. He and Gilberto Gil can form an alliance of the Americas. I can’t wait.
