An excellent look at New York prostitution in the 90s
7 October 2006 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I've seen this documentary a couple of times and it never fails to capture my interest from beginning to end. It's a non-judgmental look at the prostitution industry in New York circa 1993. The film cleverly juxtaposes the relatively high-class, free and safe inner city escort style prostitution with that of the addiction fueled, survival prostitution of the suburban ghettos. Days-in-the-lives of and stories from a demographic mix of prostitutes, dominatrixes, clients and one strangely endearing brothel owner are placed on top a base of vox pops, pertaining to the question "have you ever paid for sex?". Whilst this may sound like an obvious line of enquiry to include in such a film, it works so well due to the unexpectedly candid responses from the public and the fact that this theme runs relentlessly from beginning to end. The film-maker herself also adds to the effect of the documentary by appearing extremely peripheral throughout, forcing only her contributors and images to tell the story. Only a couple of times does she add a voice-over, and never is it judgmental or subjective.

It's therefore of strongest recommendation that if you get chance to see this documentary, then do so. You most certainly wont feel you've wasted your time
