Storyline

In Los Angeles, Jaron "Jizz" is a needy teenager that was molested when he was a child and works publishing advertisements for the sex industry. He discounts one hundred dollars in his paychecks to release Tara, who works in a peep-show in Paulie's, for the powerful lord of the sex industry Jimmy Sours. He teams-up with the whore Balery, who is seeking out a partner to steal from a rich client, to raise the necessary money to pay Jimmy. Mr. Garrett is the perverted Health teacher of a high-school; his sluttish students Melody and Courtney like to tease him, crossing their legs while wearing mini-skirts to see him masturbating in his car. Mr. Garrett takes them to join the Internet porn industry and to use pills, and Melody is raped by the sick teacher. The escort Chantel attends kinky clients to satisfy their fantasies and is protected by her pimp Wes. When Wes tries to force the entry in a client's house, the man reacts and the lives of the lead characters are entwined in a tragedy. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Dark and scary
26 July 2008 | by EXodus25XSee all my reviews

This film is dark, sick and scary, I assume for the most part it does accurately describe parts of the sex industry and the damaged people who choose and yes I say choose to live in it. I find it very telling that most people in the industry either are screwed up going in or become screwed up while they are a part of it. What is it that attracts damaged people and also what is it that turns descent people into the scum of this earth. OK, back to the film, it seems to represent this lifestyle well, but still not the into the depth of say a Boogie Nights. The actors are of much lower quality and at times you feel that things are on screen just to shock you and not to add anything to the characters or storyline. Then there is what I call the Crash effect, let me explain, since the film Crash came out (one of the best films of all-time if you ask me) many films have tried to imitate the conversation storyline style and none have done it well or anything close to as well as Crash did. This film is no exception of this, it tries to hard to connect it's characters to the point where it just loses any kind of realism factor. Now I don't mind being surprised by a films end or how it connects it's characters when it's good and it works, this is not that. Overall an OK film that does take on some controversial issues without being overly graphic, but the actors and director tried to hard to make it more poignant then it was.
