It's hard to believe it's been nearly 17 years since Heidi Fleiss entered our consciousness. In case you're too young to remember -- or know her only as one of those unfortunate plastic-surgery victims-Fleiss, aka "The Hollywood Madam," was busted in 1993 for running a brothel that catered to some of Hollywood's elite actors, movers, and shakers -- a client list that read like roll call at a SAG meeting.

Nick Broomfield's documentary recalls the whole sordid mess, getting down in the dirt by interviewing various hookers, porn stars, and most importantly Fleiss, her movie-biz boyfriend Ivan Nagy, and "Madam Alex," the woman allegedly ushered Fleiss into the oldest profession.
