Storyline

101 Rent Boys is shot on location in various motel rooms situated on the length of the Santa Monica Boulevard, and features 101 different hustlers. Although the film features 101 different people, it focuses on the lives (and loves) of a few key men. They have been chosen to reflect the immense diversity of the boys of the Santa Monica Strip. An amazing thing happens when you cross a video camera with award-winning directors, $50 and a hustler. The pieces are slickly grouped to cover certain themes; such as their first john, gay for pay, homelessness, drugs or the reason that they began to work as a rent boy. It also explores the variety of insiders' opinion on subjects such as; how a rent boy should dress, speak, act, think, give head, receive head, increase cash flow, keep safe, walk, eat, smoke, and flirt.

Fascinating and Hard-hitting
14 September 2000 | by (Houston,TX) – See all my reviews

101 RENT BOYS is an interesting documentary comprised of exactly 101 interviews with various male escort types found around Santa Monica Blvd.! The majority of them are street hustlers with rough lives to match their rough features. Obviously some were also "call-boys" who looked well-groomed and a little less street-worn. The filmmakers chose the most sensational sound-bites and presents them to us in no certain order except around themes such as "gay", "homeless", and "drugs". It's not surprising to hear about the rampant drug abuse or weird sexual requests of some "johns", but it is a surprise to hear these guys worry about things like family and their future. Great movie!
