"Janis Cole and Holly Dale have explored the margins of society in jointly-made documentaries about body-rub parlours, transvestites, prostitutes, and prison inmates. Their films, often empirical in style, present their subjects without moral judgement or analytical commentary; however, by including details that suggest parallels with the routines and norms of non-deviant behaviour and feelings, they display a passionate humanism."
