About Cherry only manages to seem inconsequential.

Little White Lies

When a guilty perv is all a film has to offer by way of a protagonist then it's probably in the best interests of us all if it doesn't exist.

Here is a movie that suggests prostitution is something that just sort of happens to you, like Lyme disease.

Never boring but never as engaging as it could or should be.

It has a didactic undercurrent, making its main character into a beautiful blank, ready to blossom under the bright camera lights and to be unabashed in the face of the unenlightened.

The lack of plausible conflict mars the movie's highly commendable depiction of San Francisco as a the new porn capital.

A muddled, inconsequential journey of a surprisingly unsympathetic character and her hazy ride to the top of the porno food chain.

This is just a slow-moving skin flick broken up by lots of boring discussions about Cherry's future.

So much of About Cherry is meant to titillate and dramatize but never humanize.

Shared Darkness

Rather shockingly lacking in dynamic plotting, the film descends into mystifying incomprehensibility in its final reels, showing a lack of understanding of basic human motivations.

Flimsy and fetishized, it delivers little more than a hackneyed skin flick.

The fatal flaw ... is its refusal to examine Angelina's occupation from outside the bubble. You might even call it a recruitment film.

Dramas about the porn industry range from expressions of puritanical rage to celebrations of open sexuality; this one manages to avoid both extremes, as well as anything else that might make it worth watching.

Despite Hinshaw's audacious performance, the characters remain at an emotional distance.

It's pornography bathed in the tangerine glow of fruit-scented candlelight.

Mediocre drama centered a young woman's introduction to the porn industry.

Generates a sensual world existing on top of the real one, where many people work non-ideal jobs simply to pay the bills.
