Exclusive: Two Clips from ‘Saint John of Las Vegas’ Introduced by Writer-Director Hue Rhodes

Hi, I’m Hue Rhodes, the writer/director of “Saint John of Las Vegas.”

You might ask, what is the deal with women in this movie? Strippers in wheelchairs, women who like hair pulling … what are you trying to say?

Good question.

Anyone who knows a stripper personally understands how businesslike sexual attraction can be. From the first hello to your last $20, it is a purely financial dynamic.

Conversely, boring cubicle life can be sexual. Office conversation is surprisingly risque, and it only escalates on business trips and corporate boondoggles.

So maybe I’m saying that as sex becomes more commercialized, commerce takes on a more sexual tone.

Or maybe I just thought the hair tug and the neck brace were funny.
