As questions are asked, personal stories about their lives are revealed, from why they chose the business of sex to how they got into it in the first place. These porn stars have always been discreet about their private lives in the past, yet Anderson has a way of opening up a dialog allowing them to share more

Too many times, "Aroused" arouses curiosity without really satisfying it.

It has an inviting softness, but the background music, odd camera angles, close-ups and lingering shots only distract and objectify.

For a film that purports to go beyond the surface and uncover the "true essence" of adult film stars, "Aroused" spends a lot of time admiring the surface.

Director Deborah Anderson ... turns a welcome opportunity into a shameless example of exploitation and self-promotion.

Aspires to be a consciousness-raising documentary but is only as deep as a tube of lipstick ...

'Aroused' is well done, and like the best documentaries and the best artwork it alters the way you see a subject and the way you think about things. But it is NOT arousing.

By imagining that she's pulling back the curtain, Anderson is instead making porn even more inscrutable, even more difficult to understand...this doesn't seem to be a main concern, as these actresses roll lie in bed for a voyeuristic camera...

Leaves you undernourished both intellectually and emotionally.

Faux feminist quotes ridiculously compare the porn stars to Anais Nin, Joan of Arc and yes, Eleanor Roosevelt. As Anderson cheers them while they get gussied up for oral, anal and mock rape scenes, exposing their souls way less than flashing flesh.

It's tough not to wish Anderson, who fortunately moves away from initial, obvious statements about how sex sells, tried harder to get the full story.

An uncommonly intelligent doc exploration of the inner lives of 16 women in the adult film industry; has an easy, unforced quality to go with its acuity, allowing the humanity and vulnerability of its subjects to come through.

An eye-opening expose about the surprisingly-conventional concerns of some of the most hyper-sexualized women in the world.
