Boy Culture (2007)
Critic Consensus: Eloquent one-liners and quick pacing make Boy Culture sharper than the typical gay indie flick.
A male prostitute who has dismissed the need for love in his life learns a lesson about affection from one of his customers in this independent comedy drama from filmmaker Q. Allan Brocka. X (Derek Magyar) is a gay hustler whose enigmatic name reflects his emotional distance from the world around him; he doesn't much believe in love, and isn't interested in sex unless he's being paid for it. X has a dozen regular customers he calls his "disciples," and shares his home with two roommates -- Andrew (Darryl Stephens), whose good looks sometimes tempt X, though he's still uncertain about his own sexual feelings, and Joey (Jonathon Trent), an uninhibited and outré teenager who openly lusts after X, to no avail. Gregory (Patrick Bauchau) is an older man who regularly hires X for companionship, but he refuses to have sex with the hustler until he's willing to acknowledge that their attraction is mutual. X isn't about to admit to any such thing, but one day Gregory shares a story with X that forces him to reconsider his thinking. Boy Culture received its North American premiere at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival. … More

Critic Reviews for Boy Culture
Actor Derek Magyar makes an impressive feature debut in this somber video drama about a financially savvy but emotionally distant male escort.
If anything about this scenario sounds remotely interesting, it's not.
Boy Culture is an undemanding but sufficiently engaging serving of smut and sentiment. As such, it reclaims territory that queer cinema has largely ceded to TV shows like Queer as Folk, The L Word and Six Feet Under.
It's a better-than-average gay relationship film, largely because neither plot mechanics nor the same old camp intrude much.
Audience Reviews for Boy Culture
A poor attempt to make a hustler seem likable. When a character is this cocky... I do not care if he has a soft emotional side.
It's different and not for everybody, but I thought it had a good storyline. Plus, the adorable boys that make up the cast are nice eye-candy.
A male prostitutes narrates his life of complicated relationships. None of the characters were likable nor did the plot interest me, it is essentially a low budget soft core porn.
