Film Analysis: Paul Schrader's "American Gigolo" (1980)

     Here's a piece that I wrote for the website Flickchart.com/blog concerning Paul Schrader's misunderstood masterpiece American Gigolo (1980).  This year, the film celebrates its 35th anniversary, and is in need of a proper reevaluation as there is a lot more going on beneath the surface than meets the eye.  http://www.flickchart.com/blog/movies-to-see-before-you-die-american-gigolo/

     Beyond my analysis of the film American Gigolo, Flickchart.com is a site that I've been using for several years to keep track of every film that I've seen and maintain an ongoing list of favorite films.  I highly recommend it.
