Here's a documentary that delves into the 'business' in Thailand, Bangladesh and Mexico, as seen from the prostitute point of view.
They speak about their hopes and dreams - or lack thereof, and lives, and what they do, and the further you go... the more you get. Insights, that is. Personalities. Lessons of life and lust. A poem. Dogs. Tricks of the trade. A glimpse into a whole other world, and a not too uplifting one at that.
It's interesting how the business differs from place to place too, with their ties to religion and culture, and different types of people. From humble beginnings in Thailand, to hopeless depths in Bangladesh, and further down to Mexico where the body is all but holy. It's like a staircase into a world of grime, and irony in the title - all but glory.
It was filmed well, this final part in a trilogy of documentaries that... maybe I should complete someday. It's a walk through brothel corridors and streets, through cages and condominiums, with interviews of both the entrepreneurs and their customers, recited poetry, prayers, song, and eventually even a little uninhibited action. Authentic, objective, uncensored; an eye-opener in many ways. Great watch.
