Storyline

A routine trick at a man's apartment propels a cynical hustler into a series of strange and life-changing encounters in this stunningly photographed drama from San Francisco-based Joseph Graham. Tall and lanky with a mop of unruly dark hair, the young man makes for an attractive prostitute - handsome in body, amiable in personality and efficient in sex. He's just out to make a buck, one guy at a time. But this coldly efficient rent boy begins to look at himself in a different way one stormy night when he finds himself lost in a maze-like apartment building. The evening begins with a tryst with a beefy but timid man unused to gay sex. Their "session" becomes surprisingly tender for both. But time is money, and he's off - that is, he'd be off if he could find the exit. His unexpected odyssey leads him to a series of encounters: there is one with a "straight" guy with issues; a cocaine-fueled queen who thinks he knows him; an older man, hidden away in a leaky attic apartment who assists ...

The best gay movie I've seen in years.
2 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the BEST gay-themed movie I've ever seen in a long time . Three words- Elegant, Erotic and Profound. Some might critic about the stereotypes in this movie, the episodic plot and the ambiguity of it all. But the amazing acting moves the episodes so smoothly, the Honesty of its material makes it more then just your run-of-the-mill gay themed movie.

Another plus for this movie, all the guys are hot and great acting. The ending scenes alone are quite awesome and the beginning scene really pulls you into what the movie is all about. It's a rare movie where it will make you horny and make you weep at the same time (if you get emotional at movies lol).

Ben Bonefant said in an interview: "It's like a gay man's Christmas Story" I couldn't agree more. Gritty and real and sometimes Dream-like Strapped manages to be This Unexpectedly moving movie about a gay Hustler, an emotional experience HIGHLY recommend it A+
