      Movie Info

      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.

        My logical mind doesn't get what Monica sees in Jesse, but love isn't usually logical.

        I'm not ashamed to say that I enjoy this version a lot more than John Luc Goddard's. I know this must seem like blasphemy to most, but this American counterpart is a lot more fun and worthwhile to me. I think the biggest improvement for me was Richard Gere taking the lead role. He's a great deal more likable and you actually care about him, rather than seeing him as an irredeemable asshole who kills random cops and has no respect for anyone but himself. I much prefer the Silver Surfer reading, Jerry Lee Lewis listening goofball. I'll be honest too, the color scheme in this movie is way too cool. Add that with some nice little changes from the original and it becomes a crazy blend of pop culture and a chase movie.

        Richard Gere plays a great sociopath

        This remake of the classic French 1959 Godard film is very good drama, romance and a bit thriller. French actress Valerie Kaprisky is apparently the hottest in her debut English-language of USA movie.
