Tagline: Stripping, the untold story

In this stop-motion animation, we hear from a woman who has been stripping for some time, but whose boyfriend and parents do not know about it.

I enjoyed the style of animation as it was full of character and it was a good way to tell the story without having to reveal the identity of the subject.

As with most things that are meant to be exotic, the reality is far more mundane.

I have lost count of the amount of supposed ‘exposes’ of various people working in the adult entertainment industry and most of them are really not that interesting.

In this case as they concentrated on the one person, the story was unique and it allowed it stand alone that really helped the film.

Rating: 8/10
