Never mind the promise of intimate, hush-hush secrets implied by the "model's diary" subtitle. This doc is an 82-minute series of nonbombshells: Models are pampered! They have body-image issues! And sometimes they have to contend with the unwanted sexual advances of male photographers! Established model and codirector Sara Ziff tries to address the fashion industry's darker sides, as well as her own conflicted feelings about choosing her lucrative career over higher learning.

And sometimes they have to contend with the unwanted sexual advances of male photographers! Established model and codirector Sara Ziff tries to address the fashion industry's darker sides, as well as her own conflicted feelings about choosing her lucrative career over higher learning. Yet despite her attempted thoughtfulness and the candid confessions of many colleagues, this behind-the-curtain portrait winds up revealing only the most superficial---and glaringly obvious---of truths.---Nick Schager
