"Exploited" DVD (director: Moses)

No, this isn't a film dealing with mohawked English punk thugs. What it is, ironically, is a sort of faux documentary/exploitation film that follows around a young and naive aspiring model named Mercedes in her travels to "make it" "at all costs" in the glamor and fashion industry. The film gradually presents her cliched "downward spiral" into drugs, alcohol, and less-tasteful "modeling", which leads her into the porn industry, and a meeting with Ron Jeremy himself.

Needless to say, things don't go well for Mercedes, and she bottoms out. As in, face down. In more ways than one.

"Exploited" looks good, and is well-enough acted. In fact, except for the silly black censor bars placed on certain sexual situations, this rather exploitative film fares well, and even ties things up pleasantly at the finish, as Mercedes "cleans up" and finds her inner confidence and balance. Overall, an enjoyable if slighly flawed film. (Independent Entertainment via MVD VIsual)
