Good idea, but not explored fully
31 January 2000 | by aaron-71See all my reviews

Although I appreciated this unique idea to explore the pimp's perspective of the lifestyle rather than the prostitutes', the director fails to tell us anything explorative about his subjects. We see a lot of their externals but not enough about their background or psychology. Also, the subjects are incredibly hard to understand. Maybe the film need subtitles.
