This weekend, a major retrospective of filmmaker John Waters' work, titled “Indecent Exposure,” opened in his hometown at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Often satirizing violence, celebrity and sexuality, the cult film director has long pushed limits of cinematic decency with hits like Hairspray and Cry-Baby. NewsHour Weekend's Christopher Booker sat down with Waters to talk about his process.
