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.

This is a fantastic movie from actress Nicole Kidman, she looks stunning in this movie playing a very manipulative woman, a woman who's only dream is be seen on TV and looked at and loved by everyone, a very attention seeking woman who will stop at nothing to make it all come true, after getting married and starting a real life she slowly decides its not working and people are just getting her way, she very slowly starts to slide out of reality and plots a way to rid her husband and manipulate everyone around her to build her ambition, Nicole plays this role really well, a very convincing performance and one of her best, she's a very sexy seductress and manipulator throughout, the story is paced out really well with characters from her life telling the events as they unfolded, friends and family are all shaken and stirred by her presence which leads to an expected conclusion at the end, if you love a good story with plenty of drama this is a must see dark comic tale, the support cast around Nicole is fantastic too, worth picking up now it has a great Blu-ray.

Blu-ray has a great 1080p HD picture presented in its original theatrical ratio,
Features include a trailer, TV spots and many galleries featuring deleted scenes, promotional material, behind the scenes etc.
Region B, 107-mins, 1995.
Comes in a nice slim-line Blu-ray case. (the inside cover has some poster art and a nice picture of Nicole from the movie)

Format: DVD
Gus Van Sant’s dark media satire appeared in 1995 but it is as relevant now as it was then, arguably more so, since although it explores the pervasive influence of television (in particular the cult of celebrity) its observations may be extended to include social medial. The movie is set in the aptly named small New Hampshire town of Little Hope and concerns the twisted obsessive ambition of an amoral wannabe media professional who believes that “you’re not really anybody in America unless you’re on TV” and who will do anything it takes to reach her goal of becoming a world-famous television news anchor. Nicole Kidman’s portrayal of local cable station weather girl Suzanne Stone is inspired. Suzanne is attractive, self-delusional, narcissistic and manipulative, who imagines herself to be intelligent (her regurgitating of pseudo-truisms is priceless) and through her alluring charm and persistency is able to persuade people to do her bidding. The movie is presented as a crime mockumentary with straight to camera interviews and flashbacks, adopting the style and utilising the techniques of tabloid television programmes it is satirising. Although Kidman’s performance is undoubtedly excellent, sound support is provided by Matt Dillon (as her ‘nice but dim’ conventional husband); Joaquin Phoenix, Casey Affleck and Alison Folland (as gullible inarticulate disadvantaged misfit teenagers she befriends and exploits) and has notable cameo appearances by Buck Henry, George Segal and David Cronenberg. Approaching the quality of Sidney Lumet’s Network and Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler this gem of a movie exploring the pernicious nature of television is definitely worth seeking out.

By Kona TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 5 Sept. 2009
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.
