June 30, 2011
Stylish but emotionally hollow, Paul Schrader's morality tale of a callboy (played by Richard Gere), offers some visual pleasures, including Armani's slick wardrobe.

May 9, 2011
Schrader's development of the frame-up story is mechanically melodramatic, and Gere, essentially a boring actor, doesn't help much either. He just cannot carry a picture, even when his passivity and gentleness well serve some aspects of his character...
May 9, 2011
Schrader manages to underline the glamour of the protagonist's profession while at the same time illustrating its seedy underside.
May 9, 2011
The story becomes increasingly implausible as its thriller elements kick in, but the moving last shot achieves a sense of spiritual transcendence and grace rare in American movies.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
May 9, 2011
Although the film rather loses its grip in the last two reels, this is, on the whole, an impressive piece of work.

March 26, 2009
Schrader's third outing as a director is betrayed by a curious, uncharacteristic evasiveness at its core.
May 24, 2008
Pure fantasy.
| Original Score: 4/5
June 24, 2006
It all becomes something of an academic, if entertaining, exercise that fails to stir the emotions.
October 23, 2004
The whole movie has a winning sadness about it; take away the story's sensational aspects and what you have is a study in loneliness.

Slick, empty and far from sensual
| Original Score: 2/5
January 29, 2004
American Gigolo explores the flashy career of a male hustler.
July 25, 2003
A trama policial é fraquíssima, e nem Schrader (também roteirista) sabe como lidar com ela, já que o ato final da história abusa de cenas episódicas em fade, só para amarrar o desfecho.
| Original Score: 3/5
February 27, 2001
While certainly not Schrader's best film as either a writer or director, it is still an interesting signpost of the early 1980s
