About Cherry Reviews

J. R. Jones

Top Critic IconTop Critic

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.

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

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

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

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.

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