Movie Info

Beth B.'s documentary Exposed showcases a handful of artists who perform in modern burlesque shows. While the new-school of of this old-timey entertainment still involves a healthy dose of nudity along with comedy, many of today's practitioners bring an envelope-pushing quality to their act in order to make audiences confront their own prejudices and feelings about issues surrounding gender. The filmmakers show how many of these performances create their act, and detail the personal struggles many of them must face.

Critic Reviews for Exposed

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

Tensely pendular tracking shots and deft full-circle pans mesh split-second action with a repressed romanticism; after a tautly efficient car chase, the inevitable conflagration yields a majestic, paranoid stillness.

November 24, 2014 | Full Review…

The film's ambitions get in the way of its action all the way through.

August 30, 2004 | Full Review…

A diverting piece of glitz, the film has attractive people doing odd and interesting things in strange and wonderful places.

Audience Reviews for Exposed

½

Kinski is great, although the "impulsive risk-taking" that Toback wants to follow inside her, through different types of life and types of movies, isn't written believably. She's his wish-fulfillment fantasy and eventually her curiosity isn't active anymore; she is just an observer of two active, automatic and solipsistic men who are able to preternaturally mesmerize women for no reason that gets exposed on film. Toback tries to go Hitchcock, and tries to go Godard to get from Hitchcock back to Toback, and ends up with a kind of action movie by a hopelessly intellectual pervert. Excellent cinematography except for the panoramic city shots, which belong in stock footage, and which the pervert is using to bore the pants off you.

Decent Tobak film that unfortunately doesn't hold up well with time.
