Named to the National Film Registry by the U.S. Library of Congress in 2006.
At the center of a storm of controversy upon its release for daring to address the subject of prostitution, TRAFFIC still wields a certain power over the viewer as it takes a "true crime" approach to vice in the Victorian era. Tucker skillfully guides viewers through various dens of iniquity, the processes of crime detection and finally to a dynamic climax in which the police attempt to bust the white slavery rackets.

I appreciate the modernity of it, the obverse and the reverse of the 20th century modernity.
I think it was a good film. But, it should have had more subtitles telling you more of what was going on. Too many scenes, especially in the beginning- were hard to understand as there were too few explainations or written lines.
