A REVIEW

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.
