Movie Reviews

Confusing mess of a film looks at two lowclass hustlers
Bob Lind | Phoenix, AZ United States | 11/17/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Simon and Rem are two young hustlers sharing an apartment and a hazy drug/alcohol existence in the city. Rem is the more alert of the two, although he seems content to turn an occasional trick and spend the rest of his time stoned and plugged into his music in the apartment. Simon claims to want more out of life, including someone to love, but feels powerless to attain it through his self-destructive behavior. When Simon meets Evan, the host of a strange late night home shopping show on cable, he sees him as another lost soul of sorts, and initiates their first sexual liason. These eventually take on a S&M bent, but surprisingly appear to relieve Evan's Tourette-related facial tics, which gives Simon some long desired sense of personal worth. As time goes on, Rem points out - and Simon realizes - that the relationship is just another source of depression for Simon, which he doesn't seem to be able to escape.

When I was trying to make any sense out of the first 15 minutes of this film (an "artsy" hodgepodge of quick disjointed scenes), I immediately compared it to the worst gay movie I ever had the misfortune to watch, "Soul Maid," which stands at the very pinacle of my personal "What Were They Thinking???" Hall of Filmmaking Shame. Not surprisingly, I later found out writer/director/screenwriter Jeff Maccubbin is responsible for both of these fiascos. The best praise I can give this one is that it is not AS BAD as "Soul Maid" ... though it is painful to watch. One could cite a comemdable attempt to focus on the lives of individuals who are definitely in the more-slimey areas of the "pond" that is the gay community, but it doesn't really tell you anything new. A little bit of eye candy, rear nudity and simulated sex make this unrated film a definite hard R. DVD has trailer and director interview. I give it 2 stars out of 5."
