It's hard out there for a ... gigolo(?)
Not really, but the Three6Mafia song (title) just was a adequate start for this movie (imho). A movie that shows us the little known (to most of us I believe) life of a gigolo. And his valet and their relationship of course!
It begins slow and the (recorded) audio isn't near the one you're used to from big budget movies. Being a low budget movie, that isn't something you'd expect. The shaky camera adding to that feeling of rawness and the bleakness of a life, that can break you down. Speaking of feelings, that's something the movie never quite achieves. Yes you will get to know the characters a little bit and yes you will like them and care for them. But you never really get deep ... now that's something that could be intentional and would fit the mood/character of a gigolo. Still it disconnects you quite a lot from the main characters. Another thing that wasn't fleshed out, are the subplots. Some starting, but having no conclusion. Some might like that, but it didn't felt right to me. An average movie then, that could've been better!
