Storyline

The well-ordered life of Dylan Thomas, a high-priced male escort, goes into moral free-fall beginning with the night he impulsively takes home a young woman he finds passed out drunk on a sidewalk. A sad little stray cat in a Lycra dress and Prada shoes, Allison Campbell is looking for security or love, and she may not know the difference. While Dylan plies his trade in swank hotels, a tentative domestic relationship with seemingly homeless Allison evolves, based on the illusion that neither of them has a past. Voyeurism is the dramatic strategy and the lure for this story. Written by Anonymous

Realism in the underworld
26 August 2002 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After conversing with the director/co-writer, Michael Sorenson, at the world premiere (Montreal World Film Festival), he told me that he wrote this story after he and Alija Sighvatsson, the second co-writer, found out that a common friend had committed suicide. The woman in question had been living a double life of prostitution and the writers wanted to find out how this atrocity came to be and attempt to bring closure to their emotional pain. After some research in the streets (which by the looks of it payed of), they completed the screenplay.

The story of Converging with Angels is a great look at the ins and outs of prostitution and has a very sincere and real quality to it. It is a study of the underworld, but also a study of life and people. The Dogma certification adds a touch of homemade real-life story, but occasionally decreases the quality of the picture (especially the lighting). This is no real obstacle though. What is the most tedious however is the editing chose of keeping the running time up at 2hours 42mins. There were no scenes that should really have been cut out, but certainly long silent scenes that could have been trimmed without losing any of the essence of the film (e.g cooking scene or dark sex scene).

Overall, the film is very good. The dialogue, the story, the acting (nods off to newcommer Robert Tobin who conveys a good range of emotions), and the realistic portrayal of the underworld. The final scene more than adequately tops of the movie and artistically captures the conflicting reality of a sex worker.

7/10
