An average movie

9 years, 3 months ago at Oct 19 8:57
After watching ‘An Officer and a Gentleman’, I thought it was time to see Richard Gere’s other classic from the 80’s. Even though I didn’t really like ‘An Officer…’, I could see its appeal but I had even more a hard time to enjoy this other flick though. Why Roger Ebert loved this movie so much and even put it on his top 10 best movies released in 1980? It is beyond me… I can u... read more

American Gigolo

7 years, 9 months ago at Apr 15 21:35
American Gigolo is all slick surfaces and neon glossed artificiality. Midway through there’s a murder-mystery thrown in, I don’t really know why, and frankly I don’t care. I think this film is all pretty on the outside, with nothing much going on beneath the surfaces. Of course, what else should one expect from producer Jerry Bruckheimer but a series of glossy images masquerading at somethin... read more

Julian makes a lucrative living as an escort to older women in the Los Angeles area. He begins a relationship with Michelle, a local politician's wife, without expecting any pay. One of his clients is murdered and Detective Sunday begins pumping him for details on his different clients, something he is reluctant to do considering the nature of his work. Julian begins to suspect he's being framed. Meanwhile Michelle begins to fall in love with him.

" Date: 11/2/2021 Viewed: HBO Max First Viewing Note: I've only seen a couple of Paul Schrader movies, and I really enjoy them. American Gigolo sparked my curiosity, so I decided to watch it after hearing about it for years. Unfortunately, the film did not live up to my expectations. American Gigolo isn't a bad film, but it isn't for me. The concept of a male prostitute who is a prime suspect in a murder investigation appeals to me. To be honest, I found the film to be slow and boring. It too"

"Losilaista mieshuoraa syytetään murhasta, jonka hän saattoi tehdä tai olla tekemättä. American Gigolo taitaa olla Richard Gere -yleisölle liian raskassoutuinen ja eksentrinen, sekä Paul Schrader -yleisölle liian pintapuolinen ja terätön. Minusta American Gigolo on kelpo neo noir, mukana sopivissa määrin silmäniskuja lajityypin perinteelle, vieraantuneen yksilöihmisen kujanjuoksua sekä räkäisiä yksityiskohtia. En tiennyt aiemmin, kuinka suuressa velassa Amerikan Psyko (kirjaa t"

"Richard Gere actually shows some versatility. I like the early 80s synth but the sound editing was amateur and the story loses the great interest it created, by the end."
