“A Dreamlike Tale of a Gay Hustler.”
   Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Time

” Strapped is an emotional journey through both an apartment complex and a young man's self-realization. It is mentally demanding, occasionally sad, and really something to treasure.”

  1. :

    When I first read the synopsis of this film, I thought “oh, another gay hustler film”. I soon found out that I was mistaken. Yes, it is indeed, another gay hustler film, but one that gives us so much more. To be fair there are a few clichéd moments, but the genuineness and new vision that this film brings make those moments ok. Writer/director Joseph Graham manages to tell us a story that could have easily been old and tired and instead he gives us something brand new.

    A young hustler leaves his client and gets hopelessly lost in a large and confusing apartment building. Over the course of a night he tries to find the exit, meeting someone new at each wrong turn. The nameless young man (he gives a different name at each interaction) becomes someone new with each new name. Each of these men who hire him are looking for something different from him; a long lost love, a taste of youth, party boys who think he is an old friend. He tries to become all of these things and, of course, as with all pretense it doesn’t work.

    Ben Bonenfant as the Hustler, and that is how this part is billed, is simply wonderful. At the same time he shows us the jaded hustler, you also can see that this isn’t who he wants to be. The fact that he refuses to kiss any of his clients makes me feel he is hopeful that, at some point, there will be someone with whom he can share this intimate action. This is a film well worth watching. It has a great story line, well acted parts and a final scene that is simply one of the most erotic scenes I’ve seen in a long time underscored with a haunting and memorable song “Tomorrow’s So Yesterday” by Windows to the Sky.
