Critic Reviews of "American Gigolo"TIME MagazineMay 09, 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...VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Schrader's third outing as a director is betrayed by a curious, uncharacteristic evasiveness at its core.Time OutJune 24, 2006
It all becomes something of an academic, if entertaining, exercise that fails to stir the emotions.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 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.EmanuelLevy.ComJune 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.Film4May 09, 2011
Schrader manages to underline the glamour of the protagonist's profession while at the same time illustrating its seedy underside.TV GuideMay 09, 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.Sky MoviesMay 09, 2011
Although the film rather loses its grip in the last two reels, this is, on the whole, an impressive piece of work.ColeSmithey.comMay 24, 2008
