Breathless (1983)
Jesse Lujack (Richard Gere) is a small-time hustler who, while leaving Las Vegas in a stolen car, shoots and kills a police officer. When his picture turns up in the papers, Jesse hides out in Los Angeles with a French student, Monica Poiccard (Valérie Kaprisky), whom he knows from a previous affair. Monica is bewitched by his reckless behavior, enough so that she keeps quiet even after learning that he’s wanted. But when police identify her as Jesse’s lover, she has second thoughts.

Richard Gere is quite simply the whole show in Breathless. To this day, this remains his most flamboyant performance of them all. He’s immoral, yet charming and by sheer enthusiasm you can’t help but root for this tragic character. The story seems to be a mere excuse to showcase Gere’s charisma and sex appeal and he carries this movie as far as it can go.

Although this is hardly groundbreaking stuff, director Jim McBride seems to be an ample filmmaker. The film is filled with nice location photography and some flashy angles here and there.

I also dug the music score, shame there’s no soundtrack album available anywhere. I recommend this film to anyone. Probably seen it over 20 times and I never get tired of it. Granted, I am a Richard Gere fan, but I also think this movie is truly entertaining.
