Over a 6 really?
5 April 2015 | by kellyleaveckSee all my reviews

A numbingly simple and one-sided myopic glance at a much larger and complex social issue. Played out old pimp stereotypes, sob story from family, cops that don't care, and posturing. When I sit through a doc I want to learn something and if fail that at least be entertained, neither of which this movie was able to do. I struggled to give it a 4 instead of a 3 but had to go with 4 because it does have camera quality and audio was good. So minus points for A/V I feel happy with a solid 2 rating.

So this thing is making me write a longer review then needed sooo. Things they could of done to make this a much more relevant film.....

Show how modern technology is playing a deeper and much greater role in prostitution.

Show the laws/loopholes/associations/ that are helping prostitution instead of a vague reference to them and touting out some major news headline like a dog with a bone. (the Vegas Redlight thing)

Show how the sexulization of children in our main stream media play a role in making them softer targets for pimps.

Show cases where prostitution is legal and actually benefits the women to offer a more rounded view and offer some possible solutions.

The list goes on for miles...
