Critic Reviews for Stripped
Far from sleek and polished, in the manner of HBO, but it's much the better for it. Ms. Morley leaves in her contradictions and loose ends, where a more 'professional' approach to this material would probably try to obscure them behind slick graphics.
Self-involved, amateurish, and unoriginal doc.
There are no stunning revelations herein, but then, that's not why you're going to go see it, is it?
Audience Reviews for Stripped
It is amazing how life will always come full circle when you least expect it. I watched this movie on Netflix streaming about the life of dancers at regular and lower end clubs in the NY/NJ area in the late 90s by the looks of things. The sound quality was pretty bad, but the cinematography was 100% 90s art house so that was expected. I'm not quite sure what her point was with the film, but it was a good POV into the complex feelings dancers have (I assume). The one things that caught my attention was the story of the missing woman. Years and years ago I bought the movie Red Light: Inside the Sex Industry, which really turned my whole world upside down and started my interest in working with and counseling sex workers. One of the dancers in the film worked on the book and disappeared after it came out. The book shined a bright light on sex trafficking long before the general public knew about America's dirty little secret.
Another interesting documentary that explores the sex industry and the women that work in it. The production and post production were definitely in need of some help. The quality was pretty bad.
A damn self-indulgent documentary trying to follow a handful of women in their stripping career. Boobs, sure. But thats about it. Wawawa; I was shy, I was a dork, I wore glasses, now Im empowered because greasy men grovel at me.
