"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. full review

Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post

Glawogger has the good sense mostly to stay out of the way and let the material speak for itself. full review

Mark Feeney, Boston Globe

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. full review

Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

A daring, novelistic and unforgettable account of the real lives of female prostitutes in three very different countries and social contexts. full review

Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com

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. full review

V.A. Musetto, New York Post

[A] quietly powerful but dispiriting documentary, which compares the world's oldest profession as practiced from place to place. full review

Stephen Holden, New York Times

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. full review

Mark Holcomb, Village Voice

To combine stories of exploited Third World women with feisty songs by female Anglo-American rockers is to flirt with glamorization. full review
