Whore (1991)

Rating:NC-17
Genre:Drama
Release Date:October 4, 1991
Running time:85 minutes
Cast:Theresa Russell, Michael Crabtree, John Diehl, Antonio Fargas, Robert O'Reilly
Director:Ken Russell
Distributor:Trimark Pictures

Description: Russell's avowed purpose with Whore was to avoid the glamorous depiction of prostitution common to such slick Hollywood products as Pretty Woman. As played by Theresa Russell (no relation to Ken), the eponymous character lives a hellish existence. Relating her story directly to the camera, Russell introduces us to her no-good former husband (Jason Saucier), her brutish pimp (Benjamin Mouton), and the kinkiest of her johns. Her one true friend, a bag man named Rasta (Antonio Fargas), also saves her life -- but not her soul. The film exists in three versions: an 82-minute R cut, an 82-minute NC-17 cut, and the 92-minute European version, which sometimes carries a rating, sometimes merely a disclaimer.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
