Stylish and full of sense love story about Gere being a very sensual gigolo who gets involved in a murder. Schrader makes and obvious critic, not only of American high society life, is about loneliness and, at the end, change. The film is full of colors and sticky Giorgio Moroder score (Inclcuding Blondie's hit "Call Me"). Of course, it tries to be a thriller, but it really doesn't work like that. Is about Gere character, how he think, how he dress and how he smiles making a interesting character study as a study about the sordid and lost life of pleasures. Co-starring Lauren Hutton as a women searching for a new life.
