Lot Lizard gives us a look at America’s attitude to truck stop sex work through the personal experiences of individuals involved in the industry. Amongst those who share their views are Jennifer, who has made a life for herself outside sex work, Betty, a long-time sex worker, and Monica, who also works in the industry, impacting her relationship with boyfriend, Bobby. The film seeks to give a voice to women with varied perspectives on their experiences of prostitution, whether they have sought to get out of sex work or have made it their careers. As such, director Alexander Perlman brings a compassionate approach to this human portrayal of women who may otherwise ordinarily be dismissed by society. Dealing with these social issues underpinning many of the individuals’ experiences, Perlman importantly draws on some of the damaging societal attitudes towards sex workers. He touches upon the massively increased mortality rate for female sex workers, as well as the disturbing dehumanisation they often experience. Lot Lizard empowers these women to, albeit temporarily, have some control of the way in they and their work are defined, in what remains a bleak depiction of the topic.
