Movie: American Gigolo
Director: Paul Schrader
My wife calls this movie “time travel” – and it is.
Sit back and watch Richard Gere slickly slither through the hot spots and underbelly of Los Angeles as a male escort at the beginning of the Greed Decade.
Then add Lauren Hutton, some smooth cinematography, a murder, and a sprinkle of Blondie’s “Call Me,” and you have something special.
The film’s only problem? Its patchwork ending.
