From Amazon.co.uk

Linda Fiorentino is like a home-grown apocalyptic nightmare in The Last Seduction as the sizzling, sexy dame who thinks "sharing" is a dirty word. Fiorentino, a master of the double-cross, hooks up with naive Peter Berg, a nice guy desperate for a little adventure. There are endless twists to this cleverly vicious story, but the real draw is Fiorentino, whose performance is brilliant. She is the everywoman you never want to meet: cool as ice, passionate, tough, self-satisfied, smart, and amoral. Bill Pullman is a surprise as a Machiavellian doctor who is almost her match. Definitely not a date flick, as this represents one vicious battle in the sex wars. --Rochelle O'Gorman

Product Description

Linda Fiorentino plays the 'femme fatale' in this cynical thriller about a clever and beautiful woman who runs rings around everyone in order to get what she wants. After persuading her doctor husband to sell a batch of pharmaceutical cocaine on the street, she double-crosses him and takes to the road with the profits. Taking refuge in a distant hick town, she condescends to have an affair with a naive local, but only so that he can further her devious plans to return to New York.

By russell clarke TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Wendy (Aka Bridget played by Linda Fiorentino) is sitting in a bar in the salubrious surroundings of Beston, which is near Buffalo NY apparently. She is enjoying a quiet drink alone, the archetypal femme fatale dressed in black smoking sultrily, when local boy Mike (Peter Berg) decides to try his luck with this lavicious beauty. She looks at him like he's a pool of something vile and unidentifiable on a pavement and tells in no uncertain terms to leave her alone .Mike in a last desperate attempt to impress tells her he's hung like a Grand National winner. She promptly checks this out herself and satisfied designates him to service her carnally. Mike is blown away, if you'll forgive the pun, this is the best sex he's ever had. He is putty in her hands. Which is good for his libido but very, very bad for his long term well being. This is one cruel amoral lady. Just how cruel and calculating, the audience like poor dork Mike has yet to discover.

The Last Seduction was released in 1994 and may well have earned Fiorentino an Oscar nod, but she was denied because it was shown on cable TV before it's theatrical release. A great shame, as she is truly superb in this movie dispensing caustic home truths and waspish witticisms with laser like accuracy. She is also undeniably incontrovertibly sex on a stick. Her allure exudes from the screen. This woman should have been a major star but somehow it never happened and we have ended up with Jennifer Aniston and Katie Holmes who are about as sexy as a supermarket trolley......in a canal.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last this is available once more on video... 11 Feb 2001
By Colbane
Format:VHS Tape
The Last Seduction is a classic of Film Noir and one of the best films of the 1990's. I have been seeking it on video since I first saw it on TV but it has been unavailable in this country for many years. At the price it is now offered at no one should miss this opportunity...now where is the DVD version? Renowned at the times for it's sex scenes this was perhaps a little unfair to such a wonderful film. Certainly it is sexy, but even for 1993 the sex scenes were not over the top and are absolutely essential to both storyline and character development. Linda Fiorentino is both alluring and blatantly sexual in the main role as a femme fatale running away from New York and her husband with the proceeds of their first and only drug deal end up in a small town, which as a city gal she despises. He, played by Bill Pullman, understandably attempts to get the money back but is thwarted by his ice cold wife and her new lover (Peter Berg) who she manipulates mercilessly into solving all her problems. To reveal more would be to ruin the storyline of this brilliant film. Fiorentino demonstrates here that she is a cut above the typical hollywood actress, Bill Pullman is great as her husband and Peter Berg suitably unsophisticated as the small town lover out of his depth as her latest conquest. The late J T Walsh puts in a typically excellent - though small - performance as her lawyer. In a word buy it....wait for the inevitable DVD then buy that too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Last Seduction Two Disc Set 16 Oct 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great performances from Linda Fiorentino, Bill Pullman and Peter Berg in this 90's film noir, full of twists and turns. Directed by John Dahl who also directed another underated film in the same decade called "Red Rock West."

Fiorentino's Bridget will literally stop at nothing to get what she wants. She runs rings around the men in the film by messing with minds, taking advantage of love and lust, and even murder in this tale of passion, greed and revenge.

Apart from the original 1 hour 45 minute film presented with an excellent print and 5.1 audio, this two disc package contains an "extended directors cut" which lasts 2 hours 9 mins. The annoying thing about this is that the quality of this version is interrupted by the additional scenes shown as "rushes." These scenes are out of place in sound and viewing quality with the rest of the film, and the timings are shown at the top of the screen. The directors cut should have just been shown like a normal film as it looks a decent alternative to the original release.

Various bonuses include a commemorative 12 page booklet, alternative ending, commentaries, "The Art Of Seduction" documentary, trailer, and a short film (29 mins approx) starring Bill Pullman and Heather Graham, which is really just a filler to the overall package.

An excellent soundtrack is worth highlighting; provided by Joseph Vitorelli, the jazzy main theme stays with you long after the film has ended - it is endearingly beautiful. The rest of the music is a mix of jazz and blues and I recommend getting the soundtrack on cd.

All in all a good set slightly let down by the viewing and sound fragmentation of the directors cut.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Fiorentino is ferociously good" ... 20 Mar 2005
Format:DVD
"[The Last Seduction] is a roller-coaster of twists and turns. It is the classic film noir thriller, but it turns everything on its head. Just when you think you know what's going to happen, it does a twist into the unexpected. I'm a fan of the [noir] genre. I like atmosphere and I'm fascinated by the psychology of the characters - the deceit, the betrayal and the desperation." - John Dahl, director of THE LAST SEDUCTION

Linda Fiorentino has since appeared as fluff in, for example, MEN IN BLACK ... but why oh WHY is such a talent being made to go to waste? As tough-as-nails, rotten-to-the-core femme fatale Bridget Gregory/Wendy Kroy there was just no stopping her - "Fiorentino is ferociously good" ...

John Dahl (KILL ME AGAIN and RED ROCK WEST) delivers this unusual, dark, tongue-in-cheek neo-noir thriller about Bridget Gregory, a sexy and oh-so-savvy hustler who connives unlikable husband Clay, a struck-off doctor, into selling pharmaceutical cocaine to pay off a loan shark ... then takes off with the $700,000 whilst he's in the shower. No packing of bags, no checking for passport - nothing. She simply takes the haul and leaves. Stopping in Jerkville, USA (Beston in up-state New York) to 'phone her lawyer (the late J.T. Walsh: stripey shirt, red braces, slick dialogue - yeah, he's The Sharp Attorney), she is advised not to start spending the $700,000 loot for another six months at least.

What now? Oh well, have a beer first. She breezes into the nearest bar, where local boy Mike Swale (Peter Berg) is berating Beston, NY and all its inhabitants for its bland and unimaginative provincialness.
