Rio, I Love You. Rio, Eu Te Amo. Trailer. Rodrigo Santoro. Wagner Moura. Emily Mortimer. John Turturro. Vincent Cassel. Harvey Keitel.

A series of short films set in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro.

Fading Gigolo. Trailer. Toronto International Film Festival. 2013.

Woody Allen plays as bookseller-turned-pimp to John Turturro’s middle-aged neophyte hustler, in actor-writer-director Turturro’s inspired left-field comedy. The premise is as inspired as it is absurd, and Turturro carries it off with his own affecting and surprisingly romantic vision of New York City.
