REVIEWS:
"Two thumbs up, way up."
- Siskel and Ebert

"Like many of the people Mr. Broomfield approaches, they take stock of his milquetoast manner and underestimate him. Big mistake."
- Janet Maslin, The New York Times

"Watching Nick Broomfield's fascinating 'Heidi Fleiss: Hollywood Madam,' with its parade of pimps, madams, hustlers, call girls, informers and cops, you quickly catch on that nothing can be trusted. Everyone lies. It's 'Rashomon' deep-fried in sleaze. This one hypnotic and wretchedly funny movie casts a queasy light on the dangerous world of a reckless young woman addicted to quick bucks, celebrity and the abusive love of a powerful old man."
- David Ansen, Newsweek

"Watching Nick Broomfield's fascinating 'Heidi Fleiss: Hollywood Madam' is like reading a covoluted Raymond Chandler mystery that takes us into the seamy side of Hollywood. The people that Broomfield tracks down so implacably are so shifty, so ominous or simply sad yet so compelling that at times it's hard to remember that we're not watching a fiction film."
- Kevin Thomas, The Los Angeles Times
