Audience Reviews for Not Angels But Angels

The director uses some cheap tactics to evoke the sympathy he wants: classical music, dark settings, leaving the camera run during awkward silences, zooming in on the subjects' faces when he notices his subject is disturbed, popping the AIDS question on every subject. And it doesn't work on me; I don't feel bad for these kids. All I can think is - wow Prague has got some hot dumb cheap young ass!

The subjects run the gamut from a 15 year old runaway with a gambling addiction to a 19 year old who has made prostitution a successful, comfortable, and safe career for himself. Too bad that when the director gets all these guys together for a party that he doesn't arrange for some intracommunity counseling between the smarter tricks and the reckless ones.

There's a couple explicit photos that attempt to be censored, but you can see everything. And compared to other documentaries on prostitution, the "bad stories" are not that bad. The worst is a masochist who whipped and beat a boy and then refused to pay. Most of the other tricks just moan about not liking anal, but that's like a fireman bitching about not wanting to go in burning buildings. One weather-worn trick talks about an era in which he was working at a cheap brothel and having nine clients a day slamming his ass - now THAT'S a legitimate complaint.

Like I said I don't feel bad for these guys; they all admit to doing it for the money and none who dislike the job discuss specifically why they cannot work or live elsewhere. It is alluded to when one of the subjects says that most of the guys spend the money they make at clubs on the same night they make it, and the 15 year old asks the film-maker on camera for a loan so he can gamble.
