With Pecker, Waters made his ultimate ode to his hometown, Baltimore, and a cautionary tale of the evils of straying to the New York art scene. Edward Furlong stars as a photographer nicknamed Pecker, who finds beauty in back alleys. An art dealer from the Big City (Lili Taylor) attempts to lure him astray, but his Laundromat-managing girlfriend (Christina Ricci) keeps him grounded. 1998, U.S., 87 minutes.
