You sit eating your danish reading the morning paper insolated in the cacoon of middle class bliss and listen to those youth talk a few booths over at a fast food resturant. Go there each morning for coffee and you hear how these hardened urchins cling to a clutch of tattered pie in the sky pipe dreams each more unrealistic than the last. You look at their arms and see evidence of the losing game they play with drugs and worse. If you eat in a place often enough soon comes a day when one of the regulars comes in beaten bloody bandaged if he is lucky having survived a date gone wrong. I work in a clean nice safe office as a computer geek one floor up and one trillion miles away from the horrid depraved street life people like those protrayed in this film call home every day.
Is this film a downer I guess maybe it is if you wanted a happy sugar coated hollywood ending. While I have never been homeless or on the stroll selling myself I have helped people who have known and lived this ugly world 24-7. From my vantage point I see very little about the world of male prostitutes, drugs and street life that is redeeming light and fun which is what this movie shows.Read more ›
Let me start by saying: This film is much darker than you may think considering it's star is a goof-ball with the majority of his other acting roles.
This is not a Comedy.
And it is not for the weak stomached.
The Jesus Metaphore throughout was a bit much at times...but worked very well with the story.
You MUST see the DVD for the extras. I watched the film then immediantly watched the David and Lucas commentary throughout the film. (DON'T WATCH THE TRAILER OR THE COMMENTARY BEFORE YOU SEE THE FILM...IT GIVES AWAY TOO MUCH).
VERY GOOD...A Flick that Sticks With You.

What can one say about the darker side of real life? It is despicable, sad, frustrating, joyful, unrepentable and noxious. Read morePublished on February 14, 2013 by Norvell J. Maher
