Audience Reviews for Heidi Fleiss: Hollywood Madam

I've read a few reviews on this film and I have to say I disagree that this is not up there with some of Broomfield's best.

Every person within this documentary is fascinating and throughout you never quite know who is telling the truth and who is just out to outdo the other person.

Some great angles covered here from a viewing prospective, Hollywood madam, secret clientelle list that could be revealed, sex,, drugs, power, informants, conspiracy. The documentary makes for a great subject matter along with some very direct questioning back and forth from Nick Broomfield.

In truth this documentary doesn't reveal a whole lot from Heidi's prospective and many questions still remain a mystery to that effect, however, two particular characters of interest do feel the spotlight with tales that you are never quite sure is the truth.

An unexpected view was that of Heidi facing prison and her mindset leading up to that, regardless of the charges, this showed a fear and possibly the vulnerable, human side of her, in fact out of the three characters, Heidi, doesn't seem to come out of this as the worst.
