Girl Model Reviews

The modeling industry disgusts me, and this documentary is a good illustration of why. Having said that, this is actually pretty interesting, albeit not easy to watch.

This is so boring and pointless. The story has absolutely no reason for existing and the people this is about are not worth watching at all.

The world of modeling is not always as glamorous as you think.

Overall really intriguing and a good documentary by the producers about what is essentially child labour trafficking. I thought Ashley Arbaugh was really boring. What was the relevance of her cyst removal? She is pretty much hyprocritical and couldn't care less about the girls. I was so disappointed that those girls were not picked up at the airport given that they were so young? Have the film makers and more importantly, these so called reputable "Caring" (bullshit) agencies have even a heart because I certainly saw no compassion. They treated these beautiful (inside and outside) girls with so much disrespect and coldness. To Ashley, you said in the film you want children, if you had a daughter and things were different and you weren't so fortunate, just imagine your own daughter in their situation? How would you feel?

Fascinating but disturbing. These very young (12, 13) and beautiful Russian type girls are sent to Asian countries for modeling b/c Japan etc has no rules re: age of girls. The girls and their families are lied to regarding work and compensation. These girls return home some months after all these pictures are taken and used for no pay to the girls who actually end up owing money to these "agents". It's disgusting when I think and write about it. It's acknowledged that there are pornographic and improper uses of these girls' pictures. Everyone makes money but the girls. There really needs to be strict regulation and intervention by the various gov'ts to protect these girls from obvious exploitation.

The terrifyingly impassive face of Ashley in her glass house will stay with me for a long time.

A hard hitting review of the dark world of modelling. Could have given more insight and made it more depressing and tragic for the audience.

I am honestly speechless... Look how bad is the world, we must help change that... And Japan, I'm so disappointed.

I've never seen a movie filled with so much hope- and disappointment. I knew the modeling industry was corrupt, but I never suspected it to be THAT terrible.

Movies are out of ideas...

Forget "America's next top model". This documentary uncovers the corrupt, almost voyeuristic nature of the modelling industry.

Extremely disturbing and insightful.
