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
panning this film feels a little unfair, a bit like criticizing a high school drama production. but having read the sterling evaluations given here (which i can only assume must have come from the cast and crew) i felt like i needed to comment. this film is excruciatingly bad and is made all the more so by the 'heavy' subject matter it so poorly addresses. the brilliance of the dogme manifesto is that it leaves cinema bare to its crucial elements (acting, directing, storytelling, etc), there is nowhere to hide. when these elements are at a high level, the result can be wonderful, but when these elements are amateurish and clumsy the result is torture. this film was torture.
