A24 Zine 17, American Hu$tlers, edited by director Sean Baker for the launch of his film, Red Rocket. As Baker wrote in the zine intro, there is a long tradition of "hustlers" in American cinema—Midnight Cowboy, Panic in Needle Park, Mean Streets. These hustlers are really just a reflection of the rest of us. It’s human nature to always be leveling up, or at least trying to level up. And there’s a certain American ingenuity to the ways people think they can do it. This zine is an homage to American hustlers—from the sex workers to the 1-800 psychics to the savant counterfeiters to the multi-level marketing believers—and as such, thee zine promotes what they’re selling. Some of the ads in it are real, and others are fake (but based on real hustlers). See if you can spot the cons, or just let the naked ambition wash over you.
