Product Description

Product Description

Story of an irresistable male hooker who attends to the physical needs of bored, rich, middle-aged women in Beverly Hills until his involvement with a senator's wife places him as a suspect in a crime he did not commit.

From the Back Cover

Julian Kay is on the prowl and looking for someone to please. Boyish and sensual, he speaks five or six languages, and is equally comfortable as a chauffeur for a wealthy middle-aged matron, and as a translator/companion for the lonely wife of an executive. He is the American Gigolo . But Julian's love-for-sale lifestyle turns deadly when a client is murdered and Julian becomes the prime suspect.

Richard Gere is electrifying as Julian in this stylish, sexually charged darama deom Paul Schrader ( Light Sleeper, Cat People ). Co-starring Lauren Hutton.

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

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.

By Dan Smith on 27 April 2015
Format: DVD
American Gigola is colourful, breezy film and shows America happy with itself: daring, contemporary - in short vogueish. The performances are mannered and gentle, while the soundtrack, set, costumes etcetera, etcetera, are grade A standard Hollywood high-end.

An intelligent film with a lot to say about men and women.

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
