"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 eecutive. 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."--Container.

Without Richard Gere, this doubtless would have been forgotten long ago, what with it's languid pacing and TV-level acting. . . .
But it remains interesting for its examination of a way of life that, with the advent of AIDS, was about to crash and burn. The director, Paul Schrader, is obviously fascinated by it, and not least by the gay aspects. Scarcely surprising, when you learn that he grew up in a strict Calvinist household and wasn't even permitted to see a movie until he was 18.

Even after all these years Richard Gere has not lost his sex appeal. I loved seeing him in his youth. Good movie - a classic.

We did a class discussion in film school. I don't quite relate everything to the late 80s, but this movie offered lots of great techniques in film making. The issues behind it includes morality, fashion (his impeccable Giorgio Armani suits), sexuality, trust and integrity.
