Finally, I want to praise the documentary of another Bostonian-turned-New-Yorker, David Schisgall, who toiled here for Errol Morris after graduating from Harvard. Schisgall’s VERY YOUNG GIRLS is bold and brave, a deeply felt exposé of prostitution among the barely adolescent in urban America. A substantial work of muckraking. But calling it Very Young Girls?
Okay, I raced off to see Young People Fucking, but that’s trashy me. David, you want persons of true conscience to watch your non-exploitative movie. They won’t if they see this scummy, misleading title.
