Despite its poor technical quality, Girl Model is a much-needed counterpoint to the irresponsible camp mentality of Toddlers & Tiaras.

A disturbing documentary about a side of the modeling business that's far from super.

Shared Darkness

A vivid and surprisingly emotive exploration of fashion modeling and the refracted reality and cost of the economic opportunities it presents for prepubescent Eastern European girls in particular.

A powerful documentary that, with a wider scope and a bit more shaping, could have been even more powerful, perhaps unbearably so. What's there is strong enough.

Surprisingly, this isn't a hatchet job - most of the subjects of Girl Model hang themselves.

Cool, calculated doc is hard to fault, but equally difficult to watch with any detachment.

The nonaggressive approach can be frustrating, but it nonetheless gets under the skin-deep promises of glamour and wealth that lure a seemingly endless stream of very young hopefuls.

Those with nothing are seduced by the prospect of something, such that they hesitate to complain, lest they end up with less than nothing.

Filled with blind eyes and unspoken agreements, "Girl Model" opens a can of worms, then disdains to follow their slimy trails.
