Entertaining Obscene Realistic Uncomfortable Viewing
12 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a film about prostitution seen through the eyes of one guy Woody who has cams following him about his work as a Pimp in downtown London England. It is realistic because this is how a Pimp works and how he is likely to be treated and respond to the dangers of his environment. Actually this is more of a drama and there are few scenes which will offend in a sexual way, mostly only the extreme blasphemies which is a common feature of British films of this kind.

Don't be put off, for example if you saw 'This is England' or 'Green Street Hooligans', then you will be at home with the raw material of this movie. I was never convinced however with the choice of the actress playing the Chinese girl who was the pawn in the sexual politics of the story but perhaps it doesn't matter in the overall relativity of the story.

It is a sort of 'paranormal activity' movie except the cam follows the pimp wherever he goes and whatever he does.

The film for me is obscene and offensive but at the same time I found it curiously entertaining. It is uncomfortable viewing but this is life and the world of prostitution. Other films such as 'Trade' and 'Human Trafficking' addressed the issue in a different way, it begs the question whether we can feel sympathy for a 'pimp'.

the same sentiments crossed my mind a couple of years when I watched a film called 'Hustle and Something' when I heard a song called 'its Hard out there to be a Pimp' won best Oscar music.

Cant rate the film above 6 but don't be put off. its a lot better than some of the American garbage dished out recently.
