A powerful documentary that, with a wider scope and a bit more shaping, could have been even more powerful, perhaps unbearably so. What's there is strong enough.
The nonaggressive approach can be frustrating, but it nonetheless gets under the skin-deep promises of glamour and wealth that lure a seemingly endless stream of very young hopefuls.
Don't expect to look at a catwalk in quite the same fashion again.
Those with nothing are seduced by the prospect of something, such that they hesitate to complain, lest they end up with less than nothing.
Filled with blind eyes and unspoken agreements, "Girl Model" opens a can of worms, then disdains to follow their slimy trails.
Make time during Fashion Week for this one.
Intended or not, it felt like an incredible metaphor for a world built on images that don't represent the reality behind them.
It features a profoundly interesting story, with harrowing and distressing undertones but the film's inability to press issues further and delve deeper into its subject matter makes it somewhat of a rubber stamp.
There is no glamour in this film; a low-key observational approach, keeps judgement and hard-hitting shock tactics at arms length.
The film will, at the very least, make you wonder about who the "girl model" really is the next time you open a fashion magazine or see a billboard.
Despite its poor technical quality, Girl Model is a much-needed counterpoint to the irresponsible camp mentality of Toddlers & Tiaras.
A disturbing documentary about a side of the modeling business that's far from super.
A candid, pensive look into a disturbing industry told through the eyes of the models themselves.
