‘Call Girl’ Review

by Larry Dwyer

The tagline for Jill VI Gevargizian’s first film, Call Girl, is “Some people like to watch…do you?”


Well, the answer to that question is yes…again and again. As a matter of fact, I watched the screener that Jill sent me four times. No, I didn’t watch it that many times because I missed a part or because I couldn’t understand something; I watched it because it’s fucking amazing and it left me wanting much, much more.


Ms. Gevargizian’s directorial debut stars Laurence R. Harvey (Human Centipede 2 & 3) as a well-dressed fellow who’s hired a lady of the night, played by Tristan Risk (American Mary), to be his date for the evening. What she doesn’t know is that this gent has a webcam on and that the evening is to be viewed by his friend who is logged in and watching. As the film is under six minutes in length, I don’t want to give too much away but let’s just say that the night doesn’t go how any of them imagined it would.


What I can tell you is that Laurence plays his part brilliantly; anyone who has seen him in THC2 knows what this man can do without dialogue and with dialogue…he proves he can be just as creepy. Tristan Risk is lovely, as always, and perfectly suited to play this role. I said when I reviewed her performance as Beatrice in American Mary that she was remarkable and she proves it to be true again.


However, the true star here is Jill VI Gevargizian. I’d bet my Irish ass that there are a ton of directors out there who wish that their first effort was as successful a debut as Call Girl is. My only complaint is that I want more; but I’m sure that Jill will deliver it in the future…

…and you can guarantee that I’ll be watching.
