Beautiful women crying over pimples.Maybe 10min of material worth watching
For those who like to see beautiful women sob over how hard it is to be a model, try Sara Ziff's "Activist" documentary about the beauty business. Entertaining maybe but it really missed the boat on what it could have shown about this industry.
There is some good points in there adding up to 10 minutes of good material total mostly about photographers groping young women. Most of it comes down to Ziff crying over pimples and how tired she is to work 16 hours a day for a fashion week, how demanding it is to make 100 K in an ad campaign and lying about your age. This is clearly a case of losing perfective by being in a small circle for too long.
Ziff seems like a girl with a head on her shoulders but shouldn't be calling herself an activist by any means. Worst humblebrag doc ever.
