ALL THE DIRT ON 'A DIRTY SHAME' is a lengthy and fascinating documentary featured on the A DIRTY SHAME DVD. Simply put, it is the best DVD documentary that one is likely to find anywhere. It is extremely detailed and for fans of John Waters fans, there is nothing else like it. John Waters gets the most screen time here and throughout the 88 minute running time, he never gets boring to listen to. It is clear from listening to him that he is a very smart and very funny man. He is also a very gifted filmmaker, which makes the documentary the most interesting. Besides Waters, the documentary also features interviews with cast members Tracy Ullman, Johnny Knoxville, and Selma Blair. 10/10.
