Although the filmmakers strive to give a fair hearing to those within the porn world who unapologetically defend the profession, the film clearly questions just how much the barely legal participants are in control.
he scenes of a group of teenage and 20-something women sharing a featureless suburban house in Florida... are authentic and effective -- banal, sad, funny and weird.
An intimate and ultimately harrowing peek inside the world of amateur porn, "Hot Girls Wanted" will shock and outrage audiences in equal measure.
Their previous effort 'Sexy Baby' quite literally changed the way I saw media images of young women, and it'll be difficult to look at any of this stuff the same way either.
While Hot Girls Wanted presents a damning portrayal of an industry in crisis, the wider issues at play are more complicated and nuanced than a 90-minute documentary allows for.
Explicit docu on dark side of porn work offers no solutions.
A documentary about making it in the porn industry that works as an excellent warning to viewers who might be tempted to try it as a path to success.
If nothing else, "Hot Girls Wanted" is instructional on a real-world level about the risks and minimal rewards of Internet porn.
As as a "scared straight" manifesto, this new documentary may do the trick when it's rolled out as a warning in high school assemblies. As cinema for anyone who has read a newspaper, it's a considerable flub.
The searing documentary Hot Girls Wanted shines an uncomfortable spotlight on the internet porn industry, specifically the world of so-called "amateur" porn.
Oddly, Hot Girls Wanted made me less mad at the porn sites and purveyors themselves than at films like Taken, Don Jon, and Pretty Woman.
A disturbing Netflix documentary, Hot Girls Wanted is an eye-opening look at the amateur porn industry. The film follows a group of young girls who come to Miami to break into porn; getting on the amateur porn circuit, doing photo shoots and videos. The girls and their agent are interviewed over several weeks as some of the girls dropout and others try to make a career out of it. The discussions are remarkably frank, and the filmmakers don't pass any judgments (at least on-screen). However, they do include a number of unsettling statistics about amateur porn; the lifespan of the girls, the number and types of internet searches connected to it, and the money involved. Still, there are some problems with the pacing and constructing a narrative, as people seemingly drop in and out and the focus moves around. Yet, while it has some problems, Hot Girls Wanted is a solid film that explores an often overlooked and troubling element of the porn industry.
Despite its tendency towards moralizing, this is a revealing documentary that says a lot about those who enjoy feeding their sexual fantasies with everything that is so misogynist and degrading to women, from videos of teenager manipulation all the way to abuse simulations.
From producer Rashida Jones, and directors Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus, comes the true story of the lives of amateur porn stars living in Miami, Florida. As the documentary explains, legislation has been enacted in California that requires male performers wear condoms. Because people are turned off by this preventative measure, Miami has been a hotbed for porn production.
Good documentary, but horrible viewing. I couldn't quite decide if I wanted to knock these girl's heads together for some common sense or if I pitied them. I went with pity in the end.
This just highlights how damaging porn is. Do not tell me there is anything feminist or empowering about it. These girls are not in control, and honestly, they will be lucky to get out of this industry without contracting HIV.
Good contrast between the arrogance going into it, and coming out at the end with less than $2000. Hardly enough to retire on.
Actually really made me angry. Miley etc have a lot to answer for glamourising this type of thing.
Or maybe I'm just getting old...
