Storyline

Nonfiction filmmaker Jill Morley documents her exploration of the exotic dancer (stripper) experience. Through tactfully selected and edited sequences, you get an insider's view into the job itself, how clubs chauffeur dancers, protect them, what's required of them, how much money they can make, tricks that dancers use to make more money, and keep clients at bay. By trying to work as a dancer, Morley gives the viewer a very personal perspective on the experience. Long-time professional dancers reveal personal anecdotes and feelings about how the job effects them in candid, personal interviews. A group discussion with several dancers is likewise illuminating. Written by David Spalding

Tedious
22 February 2003 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

Tedious documentary that follows 5 or 6 women (including the director herself) as they make their living in the New York area as topless dancers. None really has much of a story to tell or much of anything interesting to say. Film fails to give real insight on life as an exotic dancer. Funniest moment (though probably not intentionally so) is when one of the ladies compares getting breast implants to the special effects in Star Wars.

Though not an exploitative piece of film making, the DVD box bizarrely touted that "2 of the 5 women interviewed have died."
