TIFF 2011: Ricky D’s 10 Alternative Picks #9: Trailer for Michael Glawogger’s ‘Whore’s Glory’
A documentary from Acclaimed Austrian director Michael Glawogger on three brothels around the world: Thailand, Bangladesh and Mexico. The filmmaker goes in search of the plain truth of prostitution without judgment while focussing on ordinary people leading extreme lives. Thanks to Glawogger’s solid reputation, the inevitably adults-only content should find a distributor, but don’t expect to see it anytime soon; so in other words see it at TIFF.
Also worth noting: Glawogger once again teams up with editor Monika Willi (a frequent Michael Haneke collaborator) and regular cinematographer Wolfgang Thaler who judging by the trailer, does an outstanding job capturing the atmosphere of the whorehouses.
