Did You Know?


An episode of "Scariest Places on Earth" gave some backstory on the making of this film: production was slightly plagued by apparent paranormal events. Monique Parent was subject to an unexplained sunburn during the shoot, and strange sounds and images appeared on the film at some points. See more »


[first lines]
Raquel: [narrating] Stripper, dancer, showgirl, call me what you want. I dance and strip for money. Sometimes I do more than that. You can buy anything on the Strip. Some things cost a lot, some not so much. It's all relative to the market price or the moment. Every slice of time is different. The business is flush with emotion, there are no rules. If you're hungry, you'll do anything.

Surprisingly good
18 January 2001 | by teadmSee all my reviews

An aging stripper (Tan'e McClure) comes into a $2 million inheritance and seizes the opportunity to leave the business and resume her previous "normal" life. What she finds is a reluctant ex-boyfriend who resents her tainted past and a young aspiring stripper on her way to Vegas. The interaction among these characters forms the bulk of the film, and it's mostly fascinating to watch. Some extended softcore sex scenes are thrown in for good measure, but they don't detract from the script's worthiness and the thoughtful direction. At times, the existentialist nature of the story and its presentation reminded me of a Bergman film, and the Death Valley locations are used to excellent effect, to convey the characters' inner turmoil (shades of Erich Von Stroheim's "Greed"). All around, an independent film I can strongly recommend.
