Format: VHS Tape
This has to be one of my favourite films of all time. Nicole Kidman is superbly seductive in this movie about a local TV weather girl who wants to excel in the world of news reporting. Matt Dillon plays the ignorant husband unaware of his wife's dark plans for him.
The best performance comes from a younger Joaquin Phoenix as the dimwitted high school student besotted by the stunning redhead who has requested Jimmy's (Phoenix) help on a project. He is sucked into Miss Kidman's plans and used along the way.
This film is fantastic. Stunning performances all round. A fantastic plot, Nicole Kidman for the guys and Matt Dillon for the girls. (Well Joaquin Phoenix has a mullet!) All in all a wonderful film. Buy it!!

Nicole Kidman: star of Moulin Rouge, Australia and multi-million dollar perfume ads. Great performances in great movies but when you strip away the huge budgets you'll find some of Kidman's best performances are in her smaller indie movies and To Die For is one of the best.
Kidman plays a great, complex character and her performance creates empathy for this magnificent character. Many actresses would play it too hysterical but Kidman finds the perfect balance between manipulative and desperate while always keeping us on her side.
All reviews talked about her performance and she reaped a lot of awards for the part, justly earned but perhaps causing people to forget that the film is more than just one magnificent performance. Director Gus Van Sant keeps the innovative indie stylings of 'My Own Private Idaho' but with the mainstream accessibility of 'Good Will Hunting' it is also one of his funniest films. More great performances come in early roles for both Joaquin Phoenix and Casey Affleck and the underrated Matt Dillon.
A great indie film where the performances really shine and Van Sant mixes documentary style with some surreal images that will bring you back to this film again and again.

Format: DVD
Suzanne Stone (Nicole Kidman) will do anything to be the next Barbara Walters. She starts out as a small town weather girl and makes a TV documentary with some high school students, while hatching a diabolical scheme to kill her husband (Matt Dillon) whose ambitions don't match her own.

Loosely based on the true story of Pamela Wojas Smart, this movie is a clever comedy focusing on the blind ambition of Kidman's character. She plays her as an outwardly dumb blonde who is, in fact, ruthless and willing to do anything to be famous. Joaquin Phoenix plays Stone's teenage lover who blindly carries out her plan. He's quite young-looking and completely believable as the adolescent pawn in her deadly chess game.

The story is filmed like a documentary, in keeping with Suzanne's goal of being a celebrated interviewer. Having the characters speak into the camera reduced the tension but increased the humor, as most of the people involved were completely gullible and fell under Suzanne's spell. It's a macabre story played mostly for laughs with good acting all around.

Gus gave matt dillon a second chance to be a good actor agsin, gave Kidman the chance to show she could be more than just a blonde, gave the world the opportunity to discover a great director like him, proving he could make great films even when he didn't make "autheur films" like those he shot before this one.
To die for was regarded as Gus bettaying his past to get to compromise with Hollywood, while he showed how a great director can deal with important issues in an uncomventional yet entertaining way, without losing his touch.
With a brilliant mix of captivating editing and direction.
Excellent blu ray

I thought Nicole Kidman was brilliant in this film. I have an earlier version of this story called "murder in new hampshire" but it wasn't as good. Treat yourself you wont be disappointed.

This is a clever, dark and funny film about the lengths a very ambitious woman will go to in order to find fame. Nicole Kidman is fantastic, Matt Dillon and Joaquin Phoenix also give strong performances. A Must-see Film!
