Experiencing Interruptions?


Exhorter Portrait of a Street Gigolo. Alan Baxter wrote and directed this powerful film.
Art collector Kingston Watson is a father, frustrated husband and a successful lawyer who lives,
yes, but isn't really alive--until he meets a young gigolo named Action.
Action, also nick-named "White Boy" is handsome and bursting with joie de vivre.
Kingston cannot deny the attraction he feels for this New York City stripper. The ache in Kingston's
soul leads him to Action's heart. But even a heart as young as Action's, struggles whether to accept the
life he should be or should not be living.

This sensitive portrait of lust, aspirations, greed and murder was
magnificently photographed by Ron Gaither with an impressive music score by Robby Allan. Exhorter:
Portrait of a Street Gigolo is loosely based on Alan Baxter's successful play, Juan and Emmett.
Featuring Sal Anzalone, Zach Stoppert and a strong supporting cast including Kevin
Shivcharran, Josephine Pomies, Stephen Anthony and Merc Gaither. Film is seductive without
being pornographic. It's a must-see!

Director Statement

This Film Noir Feature depicts not only a sexual encounter between a lonely Park Avenue Lawyer and a very handsome street gigolo, but also illustrates the major social, economic differences that exists not only in New York City, but throughout the entire USA. We live in a very status conscious society, but when our clothes are off, we are all the same. The lawyer is also an art collector, and various paintings shown in this film gives us a clue to what one of the underlining themes is all about.
