American Gigolo
Richard Gere became a style icon in this seminal snapshot of the image-obsessed 80s from Taxi Driver writer Paul Schrader. He plays the narcissistic young escort whose services to older women put him in the frame for murder. A cool yet steamy modern noir, it had everyone getting their Gere off two years before An Officer And A Gentleman.
