'Trade': Botched Deliverynew

The film trudges on lethargically like one of its drugged characters, crossing the finish line with cliched resolution, ultimately doing an injustice to the sex trafficking story.

'Trade' Has Vague Basis at Bestnew

There are more than 300 million sex slaves in the United States, and this number is all the more alarming because I just made it up. Kinda like the "1,000,000" being trafficked across borders (ours? all international borders?) cited at the end of the film Trade.

Whatever Rocks Your Boatnew

This trite German tale of youthful angst and sexual confusion is fashioned in the form of a torpid, slow-moving softcore fantasy.
