Sad And Depressing
19 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Whores' Glory is told in three segments which begins in Bangkok, Thailand at a strange place which looks like a hotel with a room with long benches where the girls sit with numbered buttons and are chosen by customers looking through a window. It is all extremely depressing and sad. The camera follows the young women as they casually discuss everyday problems with boyfriends and other mundane matters. The johns talk about their wives and the need to escape the boredom of marriage. At least Bangkok is clean, whereas the next location in the City of God in Bangladesh is beyond filthy. The brothel district is a dirty and congested area where the whores are packed together in attached stone buildings which are impossible to describe. The poverty is overwhelming. The final city is in Mexico in a place called the red zone. Some of the hookers are in the street, while most are standing at the door of motel rooms attempting to lure men. There is some nudity here, and we finally see a sexual encounter which as cold as ice. In the end, the almost two hour length of the documentary is painful to watch, as no one at all will ever escape their tragic lives.
