Critic Reviews

  1. 50
    Whitney's body of work doesn't suggest a filmmaker so much as an opportunist with a video camera. He makes a very specific sort of reality movie. It's called porn.
  2. 50
    As a viewer, we intuit that it is more, or less, than it seems: That in some sense, the whole project is a scam.
  3. There's no denying the freak-show appeal and you don't see frontal nudity like this on TV, but otherwise it's all as contrived and artificial as "Survivor."
  4. 40
    Think Fear Factor: Soft Porn anchored by a third-act twist that results in confused meta-mayhem.
  5. It's a pretty scathing satire of reality TV, including itself, which makes it both what it is, and a critique of what it is.
