"Whores' Glory" takes a deadpan, nonjudgmental approach, which generally works well, even if the fly-on-the-wall technique makes clear that what attracts flies usually stinks.
Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post  full review
 
Glawogger has the good sense mostly to stay out of the way and let the material speak for itself.
Mark Feeney, Boston Globe  full review
 
To experience it is to be haunted by the bleakness and ugliness of prostitution, the hopeless trap of it, and the defeat of love that it represents.
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
 
A daring, novelistic and unforgettable account of the real lives of female prostitutes in three very different countries and social contexts.
Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com  full review
 
Austrian documentarian Michael Glawogger takes his cameras to three red-light districts around the world, and finds life is miserable for the women who work in the world's oldest profession - and for the men who pay cash for sex.
V.A. Musetto, New York Post  full review
 
[A] quietly powerful but dispiriting documentary, which compares the world's oldest profession as practiced from place to place.
Stephen Holden, New York Times  full review
 
Whores' Glory demystifies trick turning with a bluntness and sneaky artistry that's sure to make even the most jaded of us choke on our next sitcom-hooker-joke chuckle.
Mark Holcomb, Village Voice  full review
 
To combine stories of exploited Third World women with feisty songs by female Anglo-American rockers is to flirt with glamorization.
