Sick and twisted on the surface, but interesting social commentary underneath
This movie is disgusting and completely depraved. All characters are despicable. But below the surface lies a poignant critique of modernity. We live in an era which is totally nihilistic. There is no transcendence, no higher purpose in life anymore and thus no morality. These circumstances are a result of "good" times, in purely economic, materialistic terms. Because "good" times create weak men, who in turn create women who are absolute harlots, which furthermore turns any once great society into a degenerate Sodom and Gomorrah of soulless, depressed and unhappy prostitutes, metaphorical or in some cases literal.
