Girl Model Reviews
It Takes Two to Fight Over a Documentary (April 29, 2012)
Representing the product is Nadya, a sweet Siberian country girl whose 13-year-old features have barely advanced beyond fetal. Occupying the profiteer role is her creepy agent (āIā(TM)m trying to save all these young girlsā?) and his shadowy Japanese counterpart. Linking all three is Ashley Arbaugh, a troubled scout and former model who despises the business yet willingly sends Nadya and her kind to Tokyo with neither chaperon nor fluency in Japanese.
Unlovely in ways far beyond its on-the-fly cinematography, āGirl Modelā? nevertheless exerts a queasy magnetism. Watching Ms. Arbaugh position two baby dolls on her couch (āI had three, but I dissected oneā?) and display her special box filled with snapshots of modelsā(TM) appendages, the film tilts toward surreal horror. And when she comments obliquely on prostitution among models and hints at the dubious preferences of an agent, the stench of human trafficking is impossible to ignore.
That stink, like iffy contracts and child labor laws, remains unexplored. Filled with blind eyes and unspoken agreements, āGirl Modelā? opens a can of worms, then disdains to follow their slimy trails.
A complete indictment of the modeling industry. How it flew so far under the radar is beyond me.
Now the female who is a model scout has narcissist characteristics. It went from following the girls on how she has psychological issues. Something must had happened to her in her modeling career, to be obsess with babies, living in a glass clear house, and being obsessed with the girls feet&body. She talks about how the modeling world is such a dark place, but than she plays the role of feeding that darkness. You can tell it has consumed her mentally&emotionally.
