julian kay esercita il poco onorevole mestiere di "gigolo" un tempo alle dipendenze di anne e ora nell'interesse di leon jaimes, un negro privo di scrupoli. incontrata casualmente michelle straton, giovane e trascurata moglie del senatore charles, julian ne diviene l'amante non prima di essere venuto in contatto, per commissione di leon, con i coniugi rheiman di gusti depravati. quando judy rheiman viene trovata sadicamente uccisa a palm spring, julian kay si trova ferocemente incalzato dall'ispettore sunday e invano chiede soccorso alle precedenti amiche o clienti anne e lisa williams. per quanto non gli sia difficile capire di essere vittima di una macchinazione partita da straton e manovrata direttamente dal traditore leon, julian non puo' dimostrare alcun alibi. schiacciato da numerosi indizi, il giovane tenta di reagire aggredendo il jaimes nel suo stesso appartamento. il colloquio, tuttavia, chiuso con il volo del negro dal balcone nonostante i tentativi del suo salvataggio da parte di kay, induce la polizia ad arrestare l'inguaiatissimo julian. michelle, costretta dal marito ad allontanarsi per due mesi, avendo preso piena coscienza del cinismo del marito candidato come governatore della california, se ne distacca completamente. incurante dello scandalo, la signora straton dichiara agli inquirenti che nella notte del delitto julian si trovava con lei.premi e riconoscimenti1996 - 100 i migliori film della storia [bbc]

5.0 out of 5 stars An introduction to Mr Gere 19 Oct 2009
This was the first film I ever saw with Richard Gere, and he gives an excellent performance as Julien, a gigolo, who lives on the edge. Enjoying a lifestyle with designer-label clothes, beautiful women and money, he meets an upper class woman, Lauren Hutton, who falls in love with him. Down and out, and facing trial and prison for murder, she is his saviour. But Julien finds it impossible to understand why a woman of her background would want to be with him.
Very enjoyable movie

4.0 out of 5 stars 1980's = very bad for movies 29 Jan 2009
Talented writer-director Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver) sees Gere as a lonely man (Male Escort) trying to deal with both his own spinning moral compass and the hypocrisy of the society that's trying to tell him what to do for money. Gere is immaculately dressed; a stud for hire who services the wealthy women of Beverly Hills without ever allowing himself to be touched emotionally.

This is a thriller, but not an exciting one. The music of Blondie complements the film and gives it even more atmosphere. It needs it because the film drags along too much. The plot takes a few twists and turns as the film comes to its surprising conclusion, but one thing that's never made clear, or perhaps I wasn't paying attention, is where exactly Julian(Gere) was on the night of the murder. It's obvious that he's innocent, but where was he? He may have spent all or part of that night with the wealthy woman who, along with her husband, repudiates him, but I'm still not sure. One of the better thrillers of the 1980's even though it was a poor decade for movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best plot of any Richard Gere's films 11 April 2001
Julian Kay (Gere) is an male escort, with all the physical attributes and attitude, oozing charm, who takes his work very seriously. When helping out a friend, the nature of his work changes and the plot becomes much darker. Lauren Hutton is superb too. A must see for Richard Gere fans
