Editorial Reviews

Bobby Blue (Alex Ferdman) is an 18-year-old New Yorker with street smarts and an athletic body. He provides for himself and his alcoholic mom (Anna Thompson) the "old fashioned" way, turning tricks for lonely businessmen. Mr. Smith (Larry Pine) is married banker who engages Bobby's "services". But Mr. Smith isn't like other johns. He's repeat customer who spends $600 a night with Bobby, asking him about his hopes and dreams, but appears oblivious to Bobby's physical allure. Bobby isn't the only one kept under the thumb of his sleazy, drug-dealing pimp. A new boy arrives on the scene, driven by desperation and a debt that must be repaid. One day, a sinister customer comes sniffing around asking the new kid questions about Mr. Smith. It isn't long before an amazing past is revealed, and the lives of both Bobby and Mr. Smith are changed forever.

The movie was interesting and engaging. And the character Bobby is extremely attractive. But the copy of the video is bad and it is often hard to hear the conversations even at maximum volume.

"Mr. Smith Gets A Hustler" is one of those gay-themed films that frequently plays to GLBT film festivals and leaves audiences with a big "What?" at the end. Well acted, directed, and filmed the problem doesn't lie with what's happening on-screen, but the predictable formulaic script and its inconclusive ending. Populated with characters that aren't quite fully-fleshed it's hard to feel any connection or empathy for the characters that come across as two dimensional. Hustlers and Pimps are portrayed as money-hungry and profoundly amoral. The mysterious Mr. Smith reveals perhaps the most of any character in the movie; a former bank vice-president on-the-run after bilking a customer out of money. He's in New York to try and reconcile with his son, Bobby Blue, by his estranged lover, only Bobby has no idea that Smith is his father. His discovers the secret of Mr. Smith's true identity in a way that screams predictability and the film unfolds as an equally shady character tries to track down Smith via the hustlers, although its never clear why. Mr. Smith's pursuer finally entices Bobby Blue up to his hotel suite to get the goods on Smith only to have Bobby's pimp spare him by ratting out where Smith is. Another hustler, Abe, comes to save Bobby only after Smith's pursuer has left to get Smith. Rather than trying to save Mr. Smith from his pursuer Bobby and Abe instead commiserate about what to do. The following day Bobby coaxes a hotel staffer to let him into Smith's suite only to find it emptied, neat, and tidy. The film ends with Bobby getting into a taxi going who knows where; the end! Yeah. No indication of what happened to Smith, no insight into why Bobby wouldn't try and save Smith, no reflection on what Bobby is feeling other than his facial expressions as the credits roll.Read more ›

The only hustle here is the poor sap who gets hustled into spending bucks to see this movie because it stinks. Stinks big time. It looks like they took two dollars and got the cheapest sets and cameras they could and they begged their next door neighbors to be in the movie. The so-called hot guy isnt hot either, and if you cant figure out who Mr. Smith is ten minutes into the movie you need to get out more often. Waste of time and money.

The only thing that might be good about this film is its cover art work. Even that leaves a lot to be desired. I wish I hadn't wasted the time watching it. I would have given it negative stars but it wasn't an option.

Another gay theme film I watched holding my finger on "forward" button. Of course it is an american production. I write "of course" because I have never seen movies with gay issues so bad as those made in US (WITH ONLY A FEW DECENT EXCEPTIONS).
"Mr Smith gets..." is boring. The director tried too much to shoot...yeah, what kind of movie is this btw. A thriller? A drama?
The whole enterprise is amatourish. Acting, pictures, script...
Don't waste you time and money on this crap.

This was a pretty good story but the quality of the movie was very bad especially the audio. Parts of the movie I couldn't hear it even by turning my volume all the way up. I continually had to have my finger on the volume control.

Having trouble getting to sleep? Get this movie with its bad acting, bad music, bad lighting, bad sound, and a restaurant that never has any customers, and you'll be out cold before the second act.

The only reason I made it through this snorer is that I was waiting for the twist. The relationship between Mr Smith and his hustler is so obvious that I figured it must be a setup. Well, it's just exactly what you think it is, so there's no need to wait around.

This is quite simply a precious gem of queer filmmaking. From the extravagant, lush shots of of the twinkling NYC skyline interspersed with the raw and gritty back alleys and cheap bars they hide -- to the many erotically charged, voyeuristic snippets of the NYC hustler world, teeming as it does here with gorgeous boys for rent -- to the move-you-to-tears performances of a top-notch cast -- this is a pure winner as entertainment and as art.
Ian McCrudden's direction is nearly flawless here, whether he's revving his audience up with smoldering not-quite-but-almost-pornographic action shots featuring the gorgeous Alex Feldman (and several other unnamed hotties you may recognize from more, er, "artistic" films -- blessedly, these actors don't need large speaking parts here), or whether he's leading you down the shadowy, forlorn path of the emotional mystery story that forms the core of his plot. Skilled craftsmanship and a keen sense of style were required to elevate this world of "smut" to these artistic heights. You will grieve for Bobby Blue as his world is shattered by Mr. Smith's secret. And you will at once love and hate -- and fear -- Mr. Smith for thrusting his mysterious presence into the world he himself made, and for suffering so brutally the consequences. (It isn't quite Hitchcock, and it isn't quite Chi Chi LaRue, but there are brilliant elements of both here.)
McCrudden may be legitimately questioned on one score: Are the hustlers' encounters so erotic and the climactic violent acts so brutal that they detract from the very human story that he is trying to tell? Perhaps. But perhaps it is with intent that he means to contrast the startling emotional impact of this story with the raw, super-sexualized energy of the world that frames these weak, lost characters.
