...hardly packs the profound punch that Mignone is clearly aiming for...
Memorable more for its performances than its plot, this scrappy independent doesn't fade from the mind quickly
Audience Reviews for On the Doll
Almost switched it off, but glad I persevered. There are a few too many characters to keep track of, but once you've got it it is not so hard to follow. Most of the characters are damaged teens working either as hookers or strippers and it brushes lightly over the circumstances of their lives which drew them to that line of work. Pretty sad viewing, quite honestly. I felt sorry for all of them. Particularly the girl whose boyfriend was hooking her to buy stuff and the one who was being held to ransom.
Okay, I feel bad saying this, but for a film that wanted to be as shocking as I felt that this one did, it never got gritty or sleazy enough for my tastes if I'm being perfectly honest, and I absolutely despise actresses playing strippers/hookers and refusing to show any skin - it's just not a realistic portrayal in my book. Pass, unless you're just a huge fan of any of the talent involved, and even then it may not be worth your time.
Meh I really don't know what to say about the movie, I mean it's ok. The subject matter is pretty unique so there's that going for it, but I never really got into the movie for some reason. It just didn't seem to hold my attention, but the movie was alright for what it was.
