Depressing, Highly Effective and Great (by anchovyd)
I wasn't sure what to expect when my wife picked out this movie to watch but man was this movie ever thought provoking and interesting. What makes the film unique is that there is no narration or cuts to "experts" and hardly any interviews. The camera is more or less a fly on the wall. The only negative this is that the depressing music is cranked a little too high in the mix and is really obtrusive at times.The movie covers prostitution in Thailand, Bangladesh and Mexico. The documentary in specific looks at a midrange operation in Thailand and a sad and depressing filthy <more>
brothel in Bangladesh with young girls, and a low rent operation in Mexico. The movie is very effective.Some complain that he isn't painting a fair picture of prostitution leaving out the nice clubs in Amsterdam and Nevada. In fact in the Mexican town you can see a big building in many scenes with the word Lipstick on it. This is a nice strip club with good looking girls who you can take upstairs for about five times what the girls who make it into the documentary charge, but instead he shows a sorry strip club with very disturbing looking girls and the low rent section of the Tolerance Zone with crack ladies of the night.If he just showed the glitzy brothels, this movie wouldn't have nearly the same impact as it does. The Thai joint is the only glitzy joint here with hairdressers and makeup people dolling them up before the night. The Bangladesh and Mexican places don't even have running water and the girls are lucky if they even have a mirror.Bottom line: this movie is really great. Even my wife liked it and she usually hates documentaries and anything with subtitles... I am glad that she picked it out. Only the music detracts from this moving documentary.
I guess it doesn't get much more real than this. And it's a very depressing world for these women – particularly the segment in Bangladesh. We are shown actual film footage inside these brothels. The customers give their reasons for the visits. This is no glamour portrayal of these women – and the men who visit them.One brothel is in Bangkok and it would be the most "upscale" one we are exposed to. At least the women go out to eat and do some shopping.I somewhat question the ethics of the Bangladesh segment. Obviously many of the girls were underage. One was being <more>
recruited with no chance of leaving for over a year. As a warning the entire film is depressing – but these parts were squalid and brutal and showed extreme exploitation of minors – by women I would add. But as I mentioned this is as it is.The final segment is in Mexico and at least the women were older or most of them . Also we are shown other aspects of this "business", as in drug addiction. One woman is obviously high, and others take crack. I have to give the film-makers credit for going into this world. One role of a documentary is to unmask another world – and this it certainly does. And a film on this type of prostitution should be depressing.
The film is interesting and powerful, albeit depressing. No idea how the director got access to give us such a candid look, but this is a dark side of the world you won't see anywhere else. The subject is self explanatory, if you're at all interested about the lives of these women in Thailand, Bangladesh, and Mexico then you should experience this.My one critique is thematically, the movie is about prostitution in abject poverty, not prostitution as a "job", but does not make any distinction. The prostitutes in Bangladesh and Mexico he shows were in absolutely horrifying <more>
conditions - they were forced into it, threatened if they tried to leave, and barely paying for food. Whereas in Amsterdam, Germany, and even many in Bangkok treat it as an occupational choice. They can get other jobs, but choose to do this. Those are two VERY different circumstances that can have very different effects on people physically and emotionally. That would be my critique to keep in mind while watching. The movie is not so much a commentary on the evils of prostitution or even the lives of prostitutes, as it is delving into the darkest depth of what desperate conditions can bring.
This film was a surprise. It was quite interesting, and gave a real look into prostitution that I didn't expect to see. A very well made film. It wasn't until the end that I was disappointed. The graphic sex acts shown being performed were unnecessary, as was all the nudity that didn't present itself anywhere else in the film. The first two countries, Thailand and India, gave us honest looks into the lives of the women. I felt the last portion on Mexico further victimized these women and basically turned into a porno. The film lost some credibility when women started whipping <more>
their breasts out and allowed themselves to be filmed giving blow jobs.
Gripping docu about the women in various red light areas throughout the world (by DopamineNL)
While the chitchatting girls of Bangkok may initially make you think it's actually not that bad, the back alley brothel in Bangladesh kicks you in the stomach. Remember while watching: 100 Taka 0,95. And while the men are reduced to nasty, ignorant, or at least naive animals that can't help but exert their primal urges 'without the brothel all women would get raped all the time' is a telling quote , it's the madams' treatment of their girls that will truly horrify any viewer. The documentary ends slightly surrealistic, though not unsuitable, in a drug-fueled <more>
Mexican red light area.What probably struck me most were the small rituals, often merely casual habits, that are used by the girls to keep hanging on in their incredibly hard life.One can argue as I'm sure has been done whether 'dramatic' music in such a documentary is fitting. Nevertheless, the film is gripping, beautifully made, and if it wasn't such a nasty side of humanity the images and music would be enchanting. But without a happy end.
