Take away the story's sensational aspects and what you have is a study in loneliness. Richard Gere's performance is central to that effect. We leave American Gigolo with the curious feeling that if women weren't paying this man to sleep with them, he'd be paying them: He needs the human connection and he has a certain shyness, a loner quality, that makes it easier for him when love seems to be just another deal. Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jan 1, 1980
