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

This is an Excellent Documentary film!
4 October 2006 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

This film does not glorify stripping or preach about how evil it is, it just show the true nature of the business. This films film does not show these women as Movie Stars or objects of sexual fantasy, it show them as women who are just trying to get by and survive in a world that most turned to reluctantly, but are now trying to make the best of their current situations.

If, by the end of this film, you don't have compassion or deep feelings for at least one of these women, there is something seriously wrong with your heart. And if you're looking for a feel good, Hollywood ending, pick another film, this film is hard dose of reality.
