With its excessive levels of casual racism, sexism and homophobia, the film feels like nothing more than a rejected 'Derek and Clive' sketch that's been stripped of eloquence and irony and calibrated instead for cheap, leery laughs.
Everything about this supposedly raw exposé feels like yesterday's news.
Tight close-ups and direct-to- camera confessionals are the order of the day in a film so peppered with sleazy sex, casual violence and endless swearing that it comes perilously close to caricature. Nobody's finest hour.
The plot, concerning the identity of a snuff-movie killer, is a gruesome mixture of sexual sadism and sentimentality, made even less palatable by dialogue of quarter-witted aggression.
Awful -- bad acting, the worst kind of cockney clichés.
The sight of Dyer operating under the delusion he's channelling Al Pacino is grim enough, but the real blame must be laid at the door of director/star/co-writer Cavanah, who seriously underperforms in all three roles.
You wouldn't think a film could actually be both very boring and very offensive. Pimp is that paradox made flesh
For a film that limply purports to lift the lid on the sordid world of Soho sex trafficking this dismal offering is chock full of rank misogyny.
Both breathtakingly crass and unintentionally funny without ever being engaging or entertaining.
With nil insight - into the sex industry or anything else - you might conclude Pimp is a film for men who get their kicks watching Dyer strut around leering at topless women who -- in the parlance of the film -- look like "the basic pleasure model".
It does, however, make you pity the desperate men and women who allow themselves to be degraded on camera for a few quid (the actors in Pimp).
