Nearly unbearable.

Theresa Russell as the low-rent whore failed to be convincing.

Not as entertaining as its title.

Theresa Russell and Ken Russell have made some whack movies together and this is one of them.

Ken Russell on a shoestring is still worth your time

Audience Reviews for Whore

Ken Russell fans will appreciate this film, all others need not apply. Theresa Russell has been far better elsewhere but after awhile her performance started to grow on me; it fits into the completely nutty universe that Ken Russell creates (part art film, part social satire, part bawdy joke, part tragedy, part Hollywood pastiche). It's a bit like Crimes of Passion but lacking much of that film's flair. By the way, there is no relation between Theresa and Ken Russell, as is often assumed. Whore was also their one and only film together. It is probably the last 'real' Ken Russell movie.

I am a big fan of breaking the fourth wall already. Having a feature film with the main character being a L.A. street hooker breaking said wall is a jackpot. Great movie.

Theresa Russell shines in this underrated Ken Russell piece. Not necessarily groundbreaking, but fascinating nonetheless.
