there is no such a thing as half whore, right?
9 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

there are two kinds of whore, nature whore and forced whore, the former kind prevails,there is no cut rated whores I think. forced one is not whore morally

the message of the film is kind like being a whore isn't bad,what's bad is being a tool of males...

so guess I cannot agree with the director, the duvall guy might have huge experience in whores, but he couldn't give more useful info than a ten years old.

not the worst film about sex, routine for my huge film collection and daily viewing.
