If “Intersection” had been made in 2014 instead of 1994, it would have been called “White People Problems.” Handsome, successful architect (Richard Gere) struggles to reconcile empty marriage to beautiful, successful socialite (Sharon Stone) and complicated affair with beautiful, successful journalist (Lolita Davidovich). Don’t you just hate when that happens? Privilege plus angst equals meh. Anyway, the whole thing is gorgeous to look at (especially Ms. Davidovich) but totally devoid of depth. Which pretty much sums up Gere’s career in a nutshell. Which is why this movie holds some importance. This, not “Pretty Woman,” is the definitive Richard Gere film.
