Critic Reviews for Hot Girls Wanted

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4)

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

    Rashida Jones is the biggest name attached to the project as producer. Is she also providing the narration? I don't know. Almost the entire crew for this documentary (directing, writing, producing, editing, cinematography) are women. The film looks at 18 year old girls entering and then deciding to stay or leave the porn industry. Graphics and archival clips reveal the wider media's obsession with hot girls. They're fresh meat. But they're someone's daughter and some have hopes and aspirations for more than the instant gratification of money and constant sex. The main subject of the film is Riley Reynolds, Founder of Hussie Models, a "talent agency" in South Florida. In the context of what was allowed to be filmed for the documentary, he seems to be a nice guy who tells it like it is in the amateur industry and treats his girls well. The biggest motivations for all the girls that live together in his house seems to be receiving flattering attention, money, and limited rules from parent-like authority figures. These things keep his agency supplied with new girls every few months despite fleeting popularity, diseases and infections, or frustration that the girls feel over the obsession with violence and virginity in the porn studio system. Tressa Silguero, who, like all the girls, goes by a porn name that is invented when they arrive at the Hussie Models house, is also a major focus. We meet her parents and new boyfriend. We hear her thoughts more often than the other girls in the form of webcam journals. Her story of leaving home, eventually telling her parents what she does, and realizing that she wants out of the porn business to live a normal life is told.

    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.
