This is an intriguingly ironic “hustler” film that does not follow the traditional formula:
down-and-out, desperate young man who turns tricks out of desperation, gets used and discarded by his clients
and society until he, perhaps, finds true love and redemption in the most unexpected place.
Instead, in Boy Culture, we find a society call boy guided by an intricate moral compass–a sense of morality
that seems to keep him from true love, gratification and fulfillment. Pleasantly missing from
this treatment are the gratuitous drug use and grittiness of rough trade, which typically characterize this
genre. We find, here, four attractive (in virtually all senses of the word) main characters presented with
superb production values, yeoman like performances and decent writing. It is ultimately affirming without
being a gay fairy tale (pardon the pun).
