a good documentary about Traci Lords
26 July 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'X-rated ambition' presents a good documentary about Traci Lords, an American teenage-girl that made herself an everlasting name in porn.

During 1984-1986, Traci Lords reached spectacular heights in American porn, thanks to (1) her professional devotion, (2) her physical beauty, and (3) her ability to act. Apart from this, Traci's career was also favored by the introduction of the mobile movie-camera, resting on the cameraman's shoulder.

All these ingredients, as well as a few others, provide a true first-class story. It's historical correct; it's a story that even involves US President Ronald Reagan (in an honorable way).

You will see it all in this documentary. Featuring many interviews with people working with Traci at the time.
