    Both a wrenching journalistic exploration of real life and something close to great cinema.

    Glawogger studiously avoids explicitness until he gets to Mexico, where he finally goes past the bartering stage and behind closed doors as business is conducted. Pleasure isn't part of the transaction.

    thought-provoking, emotionally captivating, very much socially relevant, with almost poetic candid dialogue, excellent cinematography, and a wonderful soundtrack. best documentary on netflix i've ever seen, hands down. if you have an account, or even just an internet connection, i highly recommend that you watch Whore's Glory.

    Not quite the movie you'd like to watch for easy viewing and enjoyment, this sad and often disturbing view into the world of the "oldest profession on earth" is sometimes unmerciful in it's portrayal of the truth. Unflinching and never once letting off, the three stories from three different parts of the world will leave you all dizzy with enough substance, style and compelling honesty to make you cry. A haunting documentary with an equally arresting soundtrack, Austrian filmmaker Michael Glawogger will have you begging for a break without ever taking his foot off the pedal. Ever more so was the truth upon viewing the final 20 minutes. A documentary you will soon never forget. **4.5 out of 5 stars** Full Review »
