Movies

Lauren Bacall, Woody Harrelson

With writing credits like Taxi Driver, American Gigolo, and Raging Bull, it’s no surprise that Paul Schrader looked to his past for inspiration. ”I was wondering what would have become of that character in Gigolo,” says Schrader. The result is a thriller about a D.C. socialite (Woody Harrelson) involved in a murder mystery. Don’t expect another downer from the man behind Travis Bickle. ” Maybe because my name’s on it the letters d-a-r-k come up, but I wouldn’t say it’s a dark film,” he says. ”As the gigolo was handsome, the walker is funny.”
