American Gigolo ★★ 1979 (R)
A Los Angeles loner who sexually services the rich women of Beverly Hills becomes involved with the wife of a California state senator and is then framed for a murder he did not commit. A highly stylized but empty view of seamy low lives marred by a contrived plot, with decent romp in the hay readiness displayed by Gere. 117m/C VHS, DVD . Richard Gere, Lauren Hutton, Hector Elizondo, Nina Van Pallandt, Bill Duke, K. Callan; Cameos: Paul Schrader; D: Paul Schrader; W: Paul Schrader; C: John Bailey; M: Giorgio Moroder.
