No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Though it pretends to expose the life of male hustlers, it's exploitive without being insightful.
Kicks off with an inauspicious premise, mopes through a dreary tract of virtually plotless meanderings and then ends with a whimper.

The actors are forced to grapple with hazy motivations that never come into focus.
