It can be convincingly argued that John Waters' oeuvre is an acquired taste. If that's the case, I haven't yet acquired it. I view Waters as a pre-adolescent male in a state of arrested development. He is obsessed with what kids snickeringly refer to as "potty humor," and his movies reek of it. Rather than being incisive or challenging, they're merely vulgar and offensive. And it takes a lot to offend me… There's nothing in Waters' latest, A Dirty Shame , to rival his most infamous cinematic moment Divine eating a turd in Pink Flamingos , but there's some pretty gross stuff. The title is apropos. Waters' sole agenda with this movie is to argue that America's views of sexuality are screwed up. He won't get any argument from me, but isn't this a tad too obvious, not to mention limiting, for a feature length motion picture?

Looking at the content it is no miracle it was rejected by the mainstream, because Waters picks on the prudity of his fellow Americans. Sexuality is being proscribed and depicted as something reprehensible by society's bourgeois. Those are distinctively named "Neuters", who want to balk the rebellion of the sexual revolutionaries, lead by Johnny Knoxville as Ray Ray. That this is not to be taken seriously is obvious five minutes in when Selma Blair is shown with monstrous breasts. The fact that Waters, himself an avowing homosexual, does not leave any sexual orientation alone and everyone get what is coming to them, is also to be evaluated positively. If you can get something out of the trashy charm will have a nice time. The Neuter Version : Just as inventive as some of Waters' ideas in the movie is also the distribution.
This is the guy who claims that his favorite childhood memory was seeing blood inside of a wrecked car while visiting a scrapyard and fantasizing about deadly car crashes. His latest, A Dirty Shame , focuses on Baltimore residents who become fetish-friendly sex addicts after suffering from concussions. Surprisingly, Waters a. The Pope of Puke is a sweet and dignified gentleman in person — that is, until you start talking with him. When I asked him about his obsession with perverse, unscrupulous sex, his comments were no surprise. I liked doing it when it was illegal. Just think, every time you had sex, you broke the law! So where did the idea for A Dirty Shame come from? So naturally I became obsessed.
