Calling this a sick psycho sex film seems a bit ridiculous. Yes there are a handful of sexually explicit scene but the overall atmosphere seems quite restrained. Many scenes could have been grotesquely played out but often ellipses and off screen action deter that.

A sick, pycho sex film for the perverts. What is the educational value of this film that is about prostitution?

You must have a pretty narrow definition of "educational value" if you think that sexual content automatically disqualifies a critically acclaimed film. Kanopy is an excellent streaming source for film students, for example, or other people who are informed enough to realize that a movie ...Read more
