Schrader's third outing as a director is betrayed by a curious, uncharacteristic evasiveness at its core.
June 24, 2006
It all becomes something of an academic, if entertaining, exercise that fails to stir the emotions.

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

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...

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.

While certainly not Schrader's best film as either a writer or director, it is still an interesting signpost of the early 1980s
| Original Score: 3/4

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.

Although the film rather loses its grip in the last two reels, this is, on the whole, an impressive piece of work.

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.
