|The third film in Michael Glawogger's globalization trilogy (following MEGACITIES and WORKINGMAN'S DEATH), WHORES' GLORY is an explicit, unflinching exposé of global prostitution. In Bangkok, Thailand, women punch a clock and wait for clients in a brightly lit glass box; in the red-light district of Faridpur, Bangladesh, a madam haggles over the price of a teenage girl; and in the border town of Reynosa, Mexico, crack-addicted women pray to a deity named Lady Death. An audacious, non-judgmental study — shot with rich, saturated colors, and set to a soundtrack featuring CocoRosie and P.J. Harvey — the film offers an indelible glimpse of ordinary women caught up in the world's oldest profession.
