We (bleep) for less ; so don't (bleep) with us
26 November 2007 | by christian94See all my reviews

This movie's premise about a prostitution agency that is trying to making it big but is foreshadowed by a bigger and better agency run by the infamous Cheech seems completely ridiculous. Yet, the writing, acting and directing makes sure that you treat this as very serious (save maybe the hilarious slogan) and matter-of-fact. This is indeed, just a business like any other.

Beyond the sex-for-money enterprise, there is a lot depth in terms of story and character motivation and development. There is some great scenes that have something to say visually, narratively or with good dialogues and that surpass ordinary, run-of-the-mil cinema with imagination, guts and execution.

A recurring theme is the depression that most character feel and the different ways they try to go about curing themselves and finding value in their lives.

A glimpse into the psyche of individuals who are at their will and wits end, but that try to continue to go on in spite of it all, in hope of some kind of redemption or deliverance. A great ending that ties everything up with a bonus twist. A good thinker's film wrapped into a hip, hyper setting. A few moments do not hit the mark as planned, but this little film sure works well as a whole and shines and surprises at many occasions.
