What keeps Cohen's doc from slipping into comic stereotypes or reality-TV programming is his long, worried, head-on stare at his troubled parents. His pained, poignant gaze at them, trapped together but apart in a tawdry business's shadow, fascinates.

The doc could easily have tipped into caricature or grotesquerie, but Cohen's compassion for his subjects keeps the project steady and respectful.
