Reviews:

Another sleazy tale from the mind of Paul Schrader.
Fresh off his eye-opening 1979 effort Hardcore, writer/director Paul Schrader struck again in 1980 with American Gigolo. This is the story of a high-end male prostitute (Gere) named Julian Kaye. Julian caters to the every need of several well-to-do older women whose husbands either are unable or reluctant to satisfy them. Julian is good at what he does, and he knows it. But that’s his problem. His subtle arrogance is beginning to rub others in his line of work the wrong way. After he is framed for the murder of a kinky wife, Julian finds that none of his associates will help him clear his name. Adding to his misfortune is the fact that in order to clear his name, he will have to reveal much of what he does, as well as the identities of some of his powerful clients to the police. Either way he’s screwed. He either goes to jail for the murder, or he never enjoys his profitable career again. The only person who seems interested in helping him is a state senator’s wife (Hutton) who has fallen for him.

The film is really not bad. Maybe better than it deserves to be. Much of the credit goes to Richard Gere. Say what you want about the man’s odd behavior off screen, but as an actor he is always top drawer. He plays Julian as a smug, intelligent, and sexually ambiguous young man. The performance keeps you guessing as much as the screenplay. Lauren Hutton is very beautiful and plays her part with classic sensuality. This woman never did that much after this, but she gives a fine performance here. Hector Elizondo is on hand as a sleazy detective, and look out for Bill Duke in an early role as a homosexual hustler at odds with Gere.

As for the direction, Schrader does what he can, but he is much better as a writer than a director. There is nothing overly creative about how much of this film is shot. George C. Scott tried to convince Schrader to stick to writing while on the set of Hardcore. American Gigolo is a much better film, so maybe Schrader took those comments to heart and made himself better. Still, the man is just not quite the director you’d hope. Some of the scenes are just a little too stale, with only the actors to breath life into them. One downfall might also be the conclusion. The film just kind of ends without a lot resolved, and a tough choice made by a major character just isn’t given the proper motivation you’d think it would need. That said, American Gigolo is not a bad film at all. It was better than I expected, and it is a nice time capsule from 1980 Los Angeles. Give it a try. 7 of 10 stars.

The Hound.

gigolo turns good boy
I actually thought it was a pretty decent film. I have seen Gere act before but this has to be one of his best performances, he is at his prime of his good looks. I have seen him in later films but he is truly good-looking here and easily fits the mold of a high end call boy. He is framed for a murder he did not commit. It shows the seedier side of Los Angeles, the gigolo business, the loneliness of rich women with husbands who don’t love them. The love story between Richard Gere and Lauren Hutton I don’t think was fully explored. It’s a great little movie and I was very surprised at how much liked it not because of the storyline but also Gere’s acting. He has an understated believable type of acting which is fully seen in this movie, the movie also shows flashes of Gere and his marvelous physique, having previously trained as a gymnast before acting. In the end, he is finally acquitted and can join Lauren but the ride was flashy, dangerous in the meantime.
