A film by Tony Garnett

One of British television's most critically acclaimed figures, Tony Garnett has been responsible for producing some of the most radical and controversial UK drama, and is associated with groundbreaking directors such as Ken Loach.

His directorial debut, Prostitute is the tale of two women: Sandra (Eleanor Forsythe), an ambitious but naïve Birmingham working girl who moves to London with the hope of securing wealthier patrons, and Louise (Kate Crutchley), her social worker friend, who is fighting to change the antiquated and hypocritical prostitution laws. As both strive to achieve their goals, a cold dose of reality dashes their hopes, and the built-in biases against women in society are unmasked.

This frank and controversial exposé is finally presented here fully uncut and uncensored

Format: DVD
The most boring film I have ever seen. Apart from an early scene in a massage parlour wherein a decidedly rotund masseuse gives a client a little manual attention, and a short scene later on featuring two very bored-looking lesbians, it's a deadly dull and dismal affair from start to finish. Totally devoid of artistic merit, it's quite possibly the worst film in the history of world cinema.
