Filth and Wisdom, is a hilariously sexy tale of three roommates who must delve into mischievous and naughty behavior in pursuit of bigger and brighter futures. A Ukrainian immigrant, A.K. (Eugene Hutz), finances his dreams of trans-continental superstardom with his band, Gogol Bordello, by turning tricks as a role-playing cross dresser. As A.K. literally whips the privileged of London into shape, he also secretly pines for the object of his affection, Holly (Holly Weston), as aspiring ballerina looking for her big break while moonlighting as a slippery stripper. Meanwhile, Juliette (Vicky McClure) steals medicine from her pharmaceutical job in hopes of quenching her dreams of helping Africa s youth. Filth and Wisdom is every bit as erotic and playful as it is poignant and touching, revealing the universal struggles we all face in our pursuits of happiness.

In short, this story revolves around a Ukrainian immigrant (Hutz) who is named A.K. Comically, we see him moonlighting as a cross-dressing dominatrix to make money to finance his rock star dreams. He has two female roommates: Holly (played by Holly Weston), a ballet dancer who works as a stripper and pole-dancer at a local club and Juliette (Vicky McClure), a pill popping pharmacy assistant who dreams of going to Africa to help starving children and whose boss is infatuated with her and fantasizes about her regularly.
A.K. is a character with a very straight-forward philosophical attitude towards life and it played perfectly by Eugene. An interesting tidbit about this film is that Madonna allowed (and encouraged) additional dialogue written by Hütz himself to be included in the film. It's no secret - Madonna is (and always has been) a Hutz fan, supporter and admirer. Who wouldn't be - he's awesome and this film shows another side of him.
very enjoyable film. Eugene Hutz is now one of my new favorites, for his music and acting!
2. Put them in about a dozen predictable situations.
3. Add a pop video and a few of your own songs.
4. Don't allow any comedy.
Put in the blender and mix until gooey or slimey.
Half-bake for about an hour and twenty minutes.
Feed the resultant tasteless pap to an insomniac. Guaranteed sleep within a fraction of that time.
