| A Harsh Travel to the World of Male Whores
A very dark film. No glamour is to be seen in this story of Hustlers, not completely aware of their position. Trying to sell themselves as actors, they slowly penetrate in a world of sex and abuse. And what a terrifying world this can turn into. The 'agency' to which the main characters become linked deals with the most sordid of sex desires, depraved sex of sadism and masochism, where clients demand daily more aggressive aspects of sex encounters. Lured with the prospects of getting jobs in the main film industry, the supposed actors complain. I found the actors of the film most effective. Beside the beautiful bodies they keep showing to the camera, they have good acting and let us feel the anguish with it they accept their abusive parts, always believing it will come to a better assignment. In particular, B. Wyatt and Alan Boyce give poignant interpretations, making you feel sorry for them and hoping they can get out of that hell. But little hope is to be expected for those involved in this hard core sadistic industry, where people are little more than meat to be served to the lions.
