Kaprisky Point

My tribute to my teenage crushes continues with the trailer for Breathless with Richard Gere and the breathtaking Valérie Kaprisky. Breathless is begging for a critical reappraisal - it is almost a companion to Scarface in terms of hyperbolic eighties stylishness (the great Richard Sylbert being the production designer) and a clear influence on Tarantino's brand of cool, but Scarface got the cult following. Gere is pretty good in the film, but watching this great trailer now makes me wish they had cast Mickey Rourke...
