Inside Out 2017: ‘Hooked’ Review

Hooked Inside Out

Hooked follows Tom and Jack, two homeless LGBT youth who run away from home in order to start a life together. To survive, Jack gets involved in sex work to make money, but the more he makes the more disillusioned he becomes with his safety, both financially and physically.

Instagram star turned director Max Emerson has a good idea for a film, but nothing about this film works. It’s a directionless story with too many side characters, none of which you end up caring about, except maybe Tom. Jack’s antics are so ridiculous – he takes nothing seriously – that it does a disservice to other homeless LGBT youth, painting them all in a negative light.

Rating: 2.5/10
