John Turturro Stany Zjednoczone, 2013

El Biffo's rating of the film Fading Gigolo

The pimp/gigolo shtick is really just that, a shtick to lure viewers into what is actually, at its heart, a sensitive drama. The cast is great, and Woody is better in this than in his own (recent) films. And this isn't really a comedy, its a quirky thing about love, but not really a love story either. Straight to internet, no theatrical release, but Turturro deserves more credit for this, it has charm.
