Whew. Linda Fiorentino is like a home-grown apocalyptic nightmare 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, Amazon.com

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.
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.
Fiorentino is the main reason this film works so well but it's directed with metricious zeal by John Dahl who you feel is aiming for a noir classic but the scabrous wit in Steve Baranciks screenplay and the zesty interplay between the characters lets the light in too often for that. Though be in no doubt the films heart is blacker than a space shuttle full of Republicans orbiting a dark star.
The plot has Bridget duping her husband Clay (Bill Pullman in a wonderfully lugubriously outraged role) out of near a million dollars after persuading him to run a scam involving cocaine and some not very nice people. She has fled with the money and left him to face whatever unpleasant consequences ensue which is why she has hitched up in Hicksville. Which brings us to her meeting with Mike, who she promptly gives the run around in a way that makes you question whether anyone would be that gullible .But then you remember as a bloke, some of the trials and travails you have undergone in order to get laid and realise that just about any bloke would have done exactly the same as the unfortunate Mike. Berg is great in this movie, resisting the temptation to play Mike as a downtrodden hero, content to sit it out in a manipulated naïve role. Some may feel outraged that there is no moral payback for Bridget but if there was the film would not really work as well as it does. Life is sometimes as downright vindictive and iniquitous as this film.
This two disc set includes a directors cut with extra scenes which are ostensibly sex scenes though there is an alternative ending. This also includes a making of documentary, a dry director's commentary by Dahl and for some reason an episode of "Fallen Angels" starring Pullman, Heather Graham and Jon Favreau which was written by Dahl based on a Mickey Spillane story. But the main draw is the film, which is a cold yet cool classic......and Fiorentino of course.
This disc contains nothing more than the DVD which has been upscaled to produce a blu-ray.
There is consequently no improvement whatsoever on the DVD release and so purchasing this low-definition blu-ray over the DVD should be avoided!
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! DO NOT BUY THIS DISC!
