Rebecca De Mornay is a troubled shrink who whilst dealing with the mind games of a serial killing loony (Harry Dean Stanton), meets sexually charged Latino guy (Antonio Banderas) and indulges in passions unbound. Then she starts to get very unwelcome presents in the post...
The erotic thriller has been well trodden, and will continue to be so for sure, so it feels a little churlish to decry Hall's movie for coming off as a weak willed imitator of previous purveyors of the sub-genre, but this blend of Silence of the Lambs meets Sea of Love - cum - Dressed to Kill - cum Fatal Attraction etc etc just comes across as a cheat. And that's because it is!
The makers know this and try to hide their ridiculous folly behind eroticism as the two lovely looking headlining stars get sweaty and wet, indulging in sexual play that's as powerful as the surroundings (Banderas lives in a loft apartment resplendent with metal cage and wrought iron doors). But, or should that be butt? The mystery element is weak, the suspense equally so, while the back story of De Mornay's father (a key character) is hopelessly under developed.
Then there is H.D. Stanton, stealing every scene is he is in, quid pro quo indeed, yet he's hardly in the film, which ultimately proves to be a tragedy as the plot hurtles towards its implausible and risible revelations.Read more ›
No spoilers - well actually one ish
well crafted film. all the performers did good jobs. the usual twists. In fact this story is becoming so hackneyed there ought to be a moratorium on it. Really there must 10,000 variations on this story. the only thing that separates them is the crew (and even then I'm sure some of them have done several versions).
does it stand out from the crowd? a bit. but the point of these reviews for me is did I like it not what score does it get from the international board of film score-ers - there ought to be one of those ( I copyright the ide right now.
I did like it and I liked the 'Lambs-esque' interviews that lead me in the wrong direction.
What I didn't like was the universal cop out ending - It's sooooo tired. Can someone please come up with a refreshing point of view. JUST ONCE it would be nice. In fact I should really kick myself that I didn't see it coming - perhaps I watch these things hpong that just once this might end differently. This is why it lost a star
ACID TEST: would I buy again/recommend - YES
