Boy Culture is a 2006 movie that centers around a young escort named X, played by Derek Magyar. X is highly sought after by his clients who are primarily wealthy men. In the film, X introduces the audience to a world of sex, money and power that he thrives in. He often speaks directly to the audience about his experiences and philosophies on life.

The film is based on the novel Boy Culture by Matthew Rettenmund and was adapted for the screen by Q. Allan Brocka, who also directs the movie. The novel was highly praised for its frank portrayal of gay life in America, and the movie follows suit.

The story follows X as he juggles his long list of clients, including a wealthy man named Gregory (played by Patrick Bauchau) who becomes X's closest confidant. X's two closest friends are Andrew (George Jonson), a quiet and reserved man who is trying to figure out his place in the world, and Joey (Jonathon Trent), a wild and carefree personality who balances out X's more serious nature.

As the film progresses, X begins to realize that the power he has over his clients is not as fulfilling as he once thought. He begins to question the validity of his relationships with them and what his ultimate goals are. In the meantime, Andrew becomes increasingly interested in X and begins to pursue a relationship with him.

The film is a coming-of-age story that explores themes of love, friendship, and self-discovery. It delves into the complexities of human relationships and how difficult it can be to find oneself in a world full of conflicting desires and values.

One of the most notable aspects of Boy Culture is the frank and unapologetic way it portrays sexuality. The movie is full of explicit scenes that are not meant to titillate, but rather to show the reality of X's life and the lives of those around him. The film also touches on the subject of HIV/AIDS and how it affected the gay community in the 80s and 90s.

Overall, Boy Culture is a well-written, well-acted movie that gives an honest and refreshing portrayal of gay life in America. It is not afraid to tackle difficult subjects or show graphic scenes, but it does so in a way that is thought-provoking and powerful. The movie is a must-see for fans of LGBTQ cinema, and for anyone who wants to see a coming-of-age story that is both honest and engaging.

Boy Culture is a 2006 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 28 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.8 and a MetaScore of 56.
