Editorial Reviews

Billie danced to support herself as an actress. As much as she loved women who tore their clothes off in MGM Musicals, she had a love/hate relationship with topless dancing. Vicki had chin and cheek implants and two breast augmentations and felt a lot better about herself. With an MFA from NYU, she found stripping the most lucrative dance. Angela was shark- like in her approach to extracting dollars from men. She said she didn't think sexually when she worked but used "shrewd business tactics." Susan wrote for The Village Voice and danced to support herself and her son. She detested stripping but continued doing it. She said she was addicted. Then theres Jill, the director, the stripper. She wrote and performed in True Confessions of a Go-Go Girl to critical acclaim including NY Times, Backstage, Extra! and Penthouse. "Six years ago I became a stripper. I had the kind of access and privy that is only made available to those inside the trade. By profiling four other dancers, and myself, I explored the inner workings of exotic dancing: the women who want to try it, those who enjoy it, and those who want to quit. They all spoke openly about their occupation, breast implants, empowerment and exhibitionism. All of them feel deeply conflicted about stripping. By the end of Stripped, two out of five woman die because of their entrenchment in this lifestyle. Vanguard Cinema Release Date: 8/27/2002. Run Time: 78 minutes.

I used to dance, so this film really appealed to me.

The very talented film maker, Ms. Jill Morley has done an excellent job documenting their prospective worlds.

It's the delusions of the women who believe that this is a great way to fix financial woes quickly.

Finally, a doc that tells the truth about strippers!!!
I used to dance, so this film really appealed to me. The women were sexy, fascinating, and intelligent. It was cool to see how articulate women view the industry.
Last year, I watched G-String Divas in horror! There was not one ounce of truth in it. Just a softcore service for its viewers. STRIPPED drives home the reasons why women dance, why it's soooo hard for them to quit and how it can be quite addictive in so many ways. Very moving and insightful.
Thanks for making a movie like this!!!! If anyone wants to be blown away by truthful storytelling abut this industry, BUY STRIPPED!
Bravo Jill!!!
Kirsten

Since Jill Morley worked as a dancer she tells the true story of the profession. If you don't want to spoil the illusion or fantasy about women in this profession then this isn't the film for you. It is about women on the job and like most jobs some hate it and some love it but mainly they are there to make a living just like everyone else. This film is not about the titilation you get from most films on the subject but about real people with real lives. (Some of which are tragic.) So if you are interested in a truthful look behind the glitter this is for you.
Now I can hardly wait for Ms. Morley's next film which will be about the neo-burlesque movement.

I've seen this film several times and every time it's made me laugh...and cry. Director Jill Morley gives us honest-as-hell, fully rendered portraits of 5 dancers who emerge as funny, smart women dealing with different degrees of emotional damage. Along the way we meet the male characters that populate this world, from the illusion-free sweetheart who drives his "girls" to and from the clubs to the tipsy customer who tells Jill, "I would never sleep with a go-go dancer...I'd bleep her and go home!" A very entertaining and insightful film.

This documentary profiles several erotic dancers - most of whom I found to be very sympathetic. The very talented film maker, Ms. Jill Morley has done an excellent job documenting their prospective worlds. The young women are intelligent, educated, and I genuinely liked them all. For this reason, you grow to care about them almost immediately. My reason for purchasing this DVD was because I saw another documentary (on the History Channel no less.) It was about the history of vampires from long ago thru modern times. There was a segment about Susan Walsh who went missing in July of 1996 after researching a piece (about the modern day vampire subculture) she was working on for the Village Voice which they declined to publish. As it turns out,at the time Ms. Walsh had returned to erotic dancing, and she is still missing at this writing! There were numerous articles written speculating on her disappearance and Unsolved Mysteries also did a segment on Susan. Those who knew her best were absolutely convinced that she would NEVER just walk away and leave her son, and based on my research I agree! Friends reported that she felt she was being followed, and she says that very thing in the documentary Stripped. Prior to the vampire project, She had previously done a story about Russian organized crime figures forcing young Russian women to dance in clubs in New York City in the early 90's. She was very apprehensive about her safety after the article was published. Her story was so compelling, I was hooked - hence my interest in Stripped. This is such a well made documentary, and I too saw the G-String Divas series on HBO (like one of the other reviewers) and am sure this is much more true to life. The thing to come away with here, is that these girls are human beings, not just objects! Ms.Read more ›
