There is one sex scene between these two in the end and it was so bad I wanted to cry.

Amy claims she knows Saffron, but clearly what she relates to the police is not the reality.

Love me, love my food, a simple rule for life. Amy (Heather Graham) lives in a delusional world where she has her own TV cooking show which openly equates food with sex. Her boyfriend Fred (Kevin Dillon) doesn't share in her compulsion and makes the mistake of openly loving his rare African parrot more than her food. The police (Joe Mantegna) is investigating the disappearance of the neighbor Saffron (Carrie-Anne Moss). Amy claims she knows Saffron, but clearly what she relates to the police is not the reality. Saffron is an actress who has fallen on hard times. Amy cooks for her not realizing Saffron is a closet bulimic, well not actually a bulimic in that she doesn't binge eat.

The film has great scenes of Heather's cleavage, cooking food and relating it to sex, eat your heart out Rachel Ray. Outside of that, the plot displayed weakness. You have a basic idea where the story is going to lead, just unsure how it gets there. Good character portrayals, unfortunately the script didn't measure up. The film is classified as a drama/thriller but is more like a hit or miss dark comedy.

Worth a rental for quirky indie style film lovers.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex. No nudity.

just so bizarrely filmed and acted. I don't know what to think. It was very melodramatic and filmed much like a soap opera. Or on a theater stage. So much overacting. All the vivid colors and perfect props made it look a tad surreal. Loved the concept for the storyline and felt it had so much potential, but it actually moved along pretty slow and I'm not sure it had the shocking or sexy effect it might have intended. I'm not really sure what it intended. It's a remake of some older Korean movie... perhaps that might have more answers, lol.

Heather Graham plays Amy... a completely deluded, but very well-dressed cook who imagines she is prepping for her own cooking show. All she seems to do is cook all day long. And talk to her imaginary audience. The guy she lives with (husband?) has lost interest in barbie gone crazy and is bored to death hearing about food. They can't even have sex without food being involved, lol. He spends more time talking to his pretty parrot and prefers the company of his lovely (and sane) colleague. Bad idea... this is not the happy lady you want to make unhappy. Not showing appreciation for her dishes is like moving the perfectly placed labels on the shelf of someone with some mad OCD, lol.

All Amy wants is someone to feed. When the guy she lives with is no longer an option, she takes a more extreme interest in feeding her reclusive neighbor Saffron, who is played by a very corpse-like Carrie-Anne Moss. Saffron is a former child star AND a bulimic, no less, lol... which is very unfortunate for the nutcase who wants to feed her every 5 minutes, lol. The depressed and suicidal Saffron is in a dead end career and has become a shut in... boney and draped in black in every scene. She's not letting anyone in.

You might like this movie if you enjoyed:
Fatal Attraction (1987), Single White Female (1992)

Long Story Short: A young woman (Heather Graham) with an extreme passion for food is suspected to be involved with the disappearing of her neighbor (Carrie-Anne Moss). While she is preparing a meal for the investigating officer she is reminiscing, and the truth slowly gets revealed.

Review: It saddens me to see Heather Graham in all these weird B-movies, but I guess once you did one, you are stuck in this genre forever. The movie starts very appealing by showing many different food shots and colors and Heather Graham in many different Stepford -wife -like outfits, and the story seems interesting, too. But after about 30 minutes it starts getting a little boring, there doesn't seem to be any character development, and I honestly don't remember the dialogues, because they have been so meaningless. It seems like Egidio Coccimiglio had a good idea but didn't know how to breath life into his characters, so it is hard to even feel anything. When the end credits rolled out, I felt clueless and untouched. Compulsion is one of the better movies Heather Graham has come out with lately, nonetheless it doesn't deliver any tension or depth.

The Korean movie has a much better story and much more well done. This movie ripped off most of the themes and ideas.
