A rare no budget film with indie quality
1 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those films that are rare to find. Usually, indie is a synonym of poor taste or bad quality. There are many reason why people get into film making, and this film is one of those where you can tell it's made for the purpose of true love in this art form.

"Aleksandr's Price" is an emotional journey of an illegal Russian boy who is alone in New York and tries desperately to connect with someone, but the fact that he is a prostitute makes it hard for anyone to want to take him seriously. So the more that he tries, the more people take advantage of him.

It's not a movie for the faint of heart. Aleksandr gets repeatedly raped, gang banged and abused by many, if not all of his customers. You may not have a good time watching this film, but it is good insight into the life of a prostitute, and makes you think about people who may do this job because they don't really have a choice.

The character also suffers from what seems to be a bipolar disorder or dissociative disorder, which makes him struggle even more. He does drugs, and sleeps with people for money because he is lost and lonely, and wants to be loved.

Overall, a very good movie. It reminded me of "Black Swan" and "Shame" a little bit. Even though it's an LGBT film, straight audiences will find their place. The sexual scenes are not explicit in any way, which makes it easy on the eyes for those of us who are not into men. You can tell the directors thought of that when shooting this movie. I would have not liked to see nudity for two reasons; it makes it trashy and I would have probably not finished watching.

I give it a 10 out of 10 for the story telling, directing, acting and cinematography. Very well thought out film with very human universal themes.
