A Dirty Shame (2004)

What the title says. John Waters's latest film is a series of setpieces in search of a film. Some of the early bits are amusing, but as the film grinds on it becomes clear that it's not building towards anything worthwhile. The bullet in its head is the fact that it feels antiseptic, almost wholesome really -- compare this with something like Female Trouble and tell me which one's really the dirty movie. It's sad to say, but it appears that time has passed by Waters.

Grade: C
