DVD Review: Tricks (Live From Memphis)
Tricks debuted at the 2007 Indie Memphis Film Festival, and received rave reviews at the 2008 Hollywood Black Film Festival. Filmed in Memphis in 2006 and 2007, it tells the story of a group of prostitutes who operate out of the Healing Touch Massage Parlor. The film explores the motivations and experiences of the women who work there and the situations that led them to their occupation. Tricks never fully condemns or condones the lifestyles of the women, it simply shows many of the obstacles and experiences faced by members of the “world’s oldest profession”.
