a brilliant but not raunchy story of one new york hustler
20 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I checked out this film because I have come to really enjoy the work of Mr. Swan the writer, whose film, Relative Evil (Ball in the House), I couldn't recommend more highly. While perhaps not quite the caliber of Relative Evil, I submit that the film is another damn good example of some brilliant writing. I was not distracted by the things that appear to have distracted one reviewer at this site, Havan IronOak -- I doubt many people would be. Like Relative Evil, also darkly comic, but more comic. Also a character study, I will eat my sock if you don't get a lot of good laughs and enjoyment from this one. And when you do, post your comments, as I am curious to see what others think.
