Editorial Reviews

Ten years ago, Heidi Fleiss - the infamous "Hollywood Madam" - had a dream to make millions by running a high-price escort service - a goal that ultimately sent her to prison. Now, she has another dream: to open the first legal brothel for female clients in the tiny desert town of Crystal, Nevada. As a convicted felon with a headline-grabbing past, Fleiss inspires both fascination and opposition from local residents and authorities. Then, in an unexpected twist, she finds herself drawn into an eccentric world, caring for a dazzling collection of exotic birds as she battles her past demons, including drug abuse, and tries to keep her dreams in sight.

An official selection at the 2008 Los Angeles Film Festival, Heidi Fleiss: The Would-Be Madam of Crystal is a fascinating chronicle of one woman's struggle to keep her dreams alive through a combination of grit, humor and sheer perseverance.

Heidi Fleiss is a household name to anyone who was around in the early 90's. However most people have only a superficial awareness of her (Hollywood Madam, Charlie Sheen). This documentary updates us on what Heidi is doing today and offers a rare look into her private life akin to today's reality TV shows. Found her idea of starting a Stud Farm for female clients only to be an unusual idea (albeit the fact it hasn't been done before might be cautionary). It was interesting to see that she arose from a nice middle class home and had no particular traumatic events that drove her into her chosen profession (more a matter of chance).

Heidi was the madam to the stars and as her attorney said, she was railroaded as she was the only one prosecuted.
The post Heidi at the begining after her incarceration was a lucid, well spoken, seemingly inteligent woman. This film was sad in how it shows a woman with an idea and how she envisions it. That is worthy, but during the film what it shows is how Heidi is slowly falling apart and how the drugs are destroying her not only physically, but mentally.
A sad film of how Heidi, who admits having issues and constantly failing to stay sober is on a downhill slide.

This video was a surprise to me as it was very meaningful about Heidi finding herself through her work with the beautiful parrots introduced to her by her elderly neighbor. I too have parrots and volunteer with a Parrot Rescue and Adoption Agency so this video was very much enjoyed by me and my friends. It is wonderful when someone who is lost inside finds themselves through something they love, whatever that may be. I would definitely recommend this video.

Great movie of an infamous 90s character. I had seen her on celebrity rehab so I was excited to see this documentary. I love movies in small middle of no where towns and seeing the kinds of people that live there. Not sure of all the low reviews here, but its a great movie!

Not much information about for a documentary, but still somewhat entertaining to see the many colorful characters involved in this tale.
