A Dirty Shame is a 2004 film from John Waters that is completely lacking in the shame department. Uptight, prudish, and sexually repressed, Sylvia Stickles (Tracey Ullman) lives a severely restricted life until a head injury turns her world upside down. Raised by a conventional mother (Suzanne Shepherd), Sylvia was a sexless housewife who restricted her over-endowed daughter, Caprice (Selma Blair) to her bedroom on charges of moral indecency. But after the accident, she becomes the epitome of sexual experimentation. The chance blow gives her the liberty to explore uncharted reaches of fantasy and fetishism, and she quickly becomes immersed in a sexualized subculture of Baltimore. There, she meets the charismatic leader, Ray (Johnny Knoxville), and becomes his twelfth disciple in sex and every imaginable perversion and fetish related to the act. Graphic, gratuitous, and liberating, this film brings all of the dirty and none of the shame to sexual curiosity and fulfillment.
