Movie Review: Flesh Peddler
Writer/director Jacquie DiTroia adds intensity and sizzle as Holly in her filmmaking debut Flesh Peddler, a quickly moving 10-minute short film about a stripper who cons her way into a job at a talent agency and keeps finagling her way through the Hollywood structure until she learns there are more dangerous grifters than her at the agency.
Flesh Peddler has been making its way through the indie fest scene picking up a few awards along the way. Understandably, DiTroia's compelling lead perforrmance is a big attraction in the film with Rynier Gaffney also proving to be rather impressive.
Lensing by Mitchell Brinker and Alex Velasco maximizes the film's dramatic impact and Flesh Peddler is a short but high-impact film with a tremendous turn by DiTroia and a strong directorial debut making me anxious to watch her future efforts. A relative newcomer, this certainly won't be the last time we hear from Jacquie DiTroia.
