4.0 out of 5 stars We work well together....right? 11 May 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a single disc DVD with no frills, all you get is the basic movie with the standard audio and scene selections.
Two women advertising executives have been work colleagues for eight months and seemingly get along well but then their latest advertising campaign sets them apart as Christine [Rachel McAdams], takes credit for her subordinate, Isabelle [Noomi Rapace] work. Meanwhile Isabelle embarks on an affair whilst on a business trip with Christines lover Dirk [Paul Anderson] unaware of Christine' actions. What then follows is a meandering tale of deception, corruption and power play as the central characters all fight for superiority.
The film starts with a restrained pace as we pick up the initial tension between the two women, this gradually intensifies as the film progresses until the real bitchiness takes over. The film is somewhat in the vein of Wild Things [Denise Richards] in that the story has a number of twists and turns and sexuality simmers in almost every scene. Humiliation, domination and murder are the name of the game.
The film has a strange late eighties early nineties feel to it and the sets all look they've been given that 90's Italian chic designer look which all adds to the atmosphere. There are even a few innovative moments such as the split screen ballet sequence squaring off with the stalking sequence.
Not a film for everyone but if you like a who-dun-it erotic thriller with a few twists, then this could fit the bill.

5.0 out of 5 stars All I have to do is press send.... 12 Nov 2013
Format:DVD
Rapace and McAdams are bitter rivals working for the same company, in this return to form movie from De Palma.

Rapace is the underling to McAdams exec, and when the latter takes credit for Rapaces work, rivalry ensues. But McAdams takes things a little too far, and eventually it leads to humiliation, and murder.

If you are a fan of De Palma, the first thing you realise is that this movie harks back to his best Hitchcockian 'homages' , such as Dressed to Kill, Blow Out, and Body Double. And in my opinion, these movies are his best pieces of work (Carlitos Way is his best film, but his big budget movies in my opinion, are just side projects).

What you also notice is, besides all the technology (especially Apple), how eighties the film feels, and how sanitised the film, and the sets look.

But I really cannot understand why this has such a low rating, and why it never had a wider release. Yes its schlocky, and almost parody, but one of Hitchcocks final movies was Frenzy, and that was almost parody as well, and this movie owes a lot to that movie.

The film is very humorous, and some of the overacting is intentional, such as Rapaces maniacal laugh, and McAdams little hissy fit, add only to the whole fun of the movie.

But what makes this film so good, is the wonderful story, and the usual plot twists that Depalma delivers in droves.

Just when you think you know the plot twist, he pulls the rug from under you, and gives you a dream within a dream sequence, and the best part of the film, the split screen,showing you the lead up to the murder, and a haunting Debussy Ballet sequence.

A lot of people may balk at the movie, and yes, the product placement sucks, but its so good to see DePalma make another Schlocky movie with so many red herrings, once again.

Would make a great triple bill with Femme Fatale, and Body Double.

Format:DVD
Although this film isn`t a classic by any means it deserves to have a second life on DVD as it didn`t get a proper cinematic release. It saddens me that a film by someone as renowned as Brian De Palma is ignored by the distributors in favour of (mostly) soulless blockbusters. Said blockbusters need to make at least 3 times their budget to be in profit. They rarely do so it surely makes sense to give low budget offerings like this a greater push.

Anyway the film finds De Palma in his element with a dark & twisting plot which allows him to let loose with his characteristic sly wit and stylistic flourishes. The first 30 minutes or so are surprisingly static and mundane but even so it`s nice to see a film unfolding in such an elegant & unfussy style which is rare these days. It allows the actors to shine and you really get to know the emotionally complex main characters played by Noomi Rapace & Rachel McAdams. Soon after however De Palma ramps up the tension with emotional and dramatic scenes with more than a few red herrings. It`s also worth mentioning Pino Donaggio`s brilliant, lushly orchestrated soundtrack which is by turns charming and jaunty then swirling and darkly romantic according to the onscreen action.

I just hope De Palma isn`t becoming demoralised by the short thrift his last few films have been getting & that we can look forward to more from him. He deserves more for never becoming a director for hire & sticking to his guns. Don`t forget this is the man who gave us true classics such as `Carrie`, `Blow Out`, `The Untouchables` & `Carlito`s Way`. I for one would rather queue up for one of his films than the likes of `Transformers 7` or `The Fast And The Furious 13`

4.0 out of 5 stars NEARLY A 5 STAR DE PALMA 2 Nov 2013
By A. W. Wilson TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Just not quite. However this is a splendid on form De Palma. A slow burn for 45 mins or so, then a murder, and a whodunnit, that works very well thanks to direction and acting. I love Noomi Rapace and she is given every acting opporunity here and turns in a terrific performence. I am not too sure about Rachel McAdams, but she sure does a good "Nasty". I loved this film tho perhaps it isn't to everyone's taste (What is?). Don't expect too much sex tho Noomi and Karoline Hepburth share a kiss, but you have to see the film to see how and why. De Palma remains one of my favourite directors, and with a fair price and an excellent print (1.85 Ratio) you can't go far wrong. No Extras (not that that matters to me). Highly recomended and like I said, almost 5 stars-In fact....

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable film.
Although I did enjoy this film, it was quite hard going at times. It's a bit like an abstract painting, difficult to understand but if you stick with it, quite a good watch.
