Like an MTV special, this documentary on an inherently provocative and important subject doesn't tell us anything about the porn industry or the actors that we didn't already know. Instead, we are meant to revel in the banality of the "behind-the-scenes" reality and empathize with a bunch of clueless teenage girls who just want to get rich and famous.
Yet another less than stellar oversimplified effort to understand the porn industry, and this time through a very small sample of girls trying to make it. These days the industry works like a conveyor belt: someone leaves, a newbie comes in, and very rarely there's actual fun involved, so all of it feels quite dreary. But, like I said, HGW is only a small slice of a much bigger issue.
A great documentary from a technical standpoint. Excellent structure with interesting perspectives. Perhaps the only thing dragging this film down is just how in this day and age, this sort of thing doesn't shock us anymore, which is not the fault of the filmmakers.
no era mala la idea... por esa razón mire este docu, pero siento que abarco solo una mínima parte de lo que ocurre hoy con el porno en las redes, creo que cada día van dominando más internet y me cuesta creer en que terminara todo esto... no sé si sera bueno o malo, pero si va a cambiar la forma de ver la sexualidad de las futuras generaciones...
I don't know how I feel about this? Overall, it was anti-porn and it depicted the industry's reality, but then ends up with someone who gave up and new girls coming in the house... It's so fucking sad that... Man, I don't know. People are free to do whatever they want, just don't feed a society that's men-centric and respond to some bullshit patterns imposed by them. I guess that is it.
This documentary would be the endless topic to discuss like maybe it's quite deliberating that the women nowadays are making their own choices by working in the porn industry and also creating the sense of the empowerment, but at the same time the porn actress mostly depicted as sex objects rather than the willing participants...
It was OK... I felt it could have gone deeper with its analysis of its subject matter, but chose to really present it in a more pedestrian light. The (real-life) protagonists were about as clichéd a bunch of people you could have mustered if it was scripted. Right down to the obvious/ predictable ending. But, I admire the film-makers for making the film and there were a couple of scenes that really worried me... :-(
