(mx) wrote: It takes just a single Cary Grant movie to deeply ruin any real romantic chance that I could possibly ever have with any male. Everyone is so un-Grant it frustrates me to death. Can't help feeling rather gloomy this morning, like I could never ever be fully satisfied with men or a life sans-Grant.
(it) wrote: i know what you're thinking:"looks like a big, fat, and old (released in 1944!) marshmellow!" and you wouldn't be far wrong, but this still manages to be one tasty 64 year old campfire treat. first off, the plot: (and who really cares?) silly campus hijinks ensue when a guy joins a womens college to win back his wandering wife. the focus here though is equally on both the music and the comedy. the music: harry james, xavier cugat and a slew of old school composers fill out an agenda that veers incredibly from boogie woogie to samba to classical. and look particularly for a scene featuring red skelton in a ballerina class for comedy. the audience i saw this old school everything-but-the-kitchen-sink effort with was laughing throughout, like the work was made yesterday, and the old skeptical cynic in me turned to mush during the picture closing esther-in-a-swimsuit choreographed free-for-all. all this and more big names than your palm tree's got coconuts! me likey bigtime!

(mx) wrote: I'm not at all a Richard Gere fan and for that reason I've stayed away from this film. However, I've been a longtime fan of writer/director Paul Schrader and I've been lately checking out the music of Giorgio Moroder, who did the music for this film, so I finally broke down and watched this film and was quite taken with it. Schrader tends towards the seedy underbelly of society in his films and this one is no exception. Here Schrader follows high priced male prostitute, Gere, as he provides her services for a variety of ladies. When Gere has one "rough trick" he end up being accused of murder by the police and that's the hook to see how Gere moves through high society, political interests, 80s leather bars, rich fetishists, along with lowlife pimps and drug dealers. Besides the social commentary on wealth, power and control, the element I found most interesting was Gere's slow realization that he's a shallow low life who's not the in control guy who he thought he was. I'm not sure if it's the acting or the writing, but Gere seems dominated by the characters around in through most of the film, whether it's his latest client, the gorgeous Lauren Hutton, or the police detective, Hector Elizondo in one of his best roles, or an ex-pimp of Gere's, Bill Duke with hair. You even get Frank Pesce as Suspect #4 in a line-up scene. An element of a lot of Schrader films, like "Taxi Driver" or "Hardcore" is the subculture element, where the audience is taken into a strange foreign world lurking below the otherwise squeaky clean California image. Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, with a nice synthesizer score by Giorgio Moroder and glossy neon 80s photography by John Bailey, this film is a real classic (despite my dislike of Gere).
