Editorial Reviews

In a "riveting performance" (The Hollywood Reporter) that stunned critics and audiences alike, Farrah Fawcett is the heart and soul of this "edge-of-your-seat suspense drama" (The Film Journal) about a woman who turns the tables on a would-be rapist. Nominated* for a Golden Globe, Fawcett "is genuine, pathetic and heroic here" (Los Angeles Times) and her "unadorned artistry singes" (Time)! After narrowly escaping an attempted rape, Marjorie (Fawcett) is haunted by the fact that her attacker (James Russo) knows where she lives. But when he appears on her doorstep and subjects her to a non-stop barrage of physical and mental assaults, Marjorie manages to disarm and capture him. Filled with fear and hostility, she conspires with her roommates (Diana Scarwid and Alfre Woodard) to take the law into their own hands. But as her rage consumes her, Marjorie shocks her friends with a proposal that challenges the perilously thin line between justice and vengeance. *1986: Actress in a Leading Role

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best. February 17, 2002
Format:DVD
"Extremities" has been my favorite film since I first viewed it in 1986. Although there are a number of excellent performers out there, Farrah Fawcett's portrayal of Marjorie; an attempted rape victim who turns the tables on her attacker, is the best on film. Her excellent two note performance evenly weighs both the victim and victor perfectly. If you have never seen this movie or even if you just haven't seen it on DVD--don't miss out. It originally was produced on the New York stage & it was so real they had to have guards on hand to prevent people from jumping on stage to help Farrah. As the title of this article states--simply the best.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Character Study of Violence and Submission July 27, 2005
Format:DVD
"Extremities" is almost like a filmed play, with a marvelous 4-person cast, and it keeps one's interest even though most of the action takes place in 2 rooms of a small house. This very low budget production may have many flaws, but it is at times riveting viewing. Farrah Fawcett followed her critically acclaimed "The Burning Bed" with this film, and once again proved that she was much more than a "Charlie's Angels" pin-up. Along with Fawcett, James Russo is Joe, a truly creepy villain, and Alfre Woodard and Diana Scarwid are both terrific as Fawcett's housemates. Woodard is one of Hollywood's most beautiful and underrated actresses, and gives yet another wonderful performance, and Scarwid is very moving as she tells her personal history, and how she dealt with a similar trauma.

This is a character study of a depraved man who sets his mind on terrorizing a woman, first by assaulting her in a car, and then in a home invasion. The violence that ensues sometimes feels quite real, and the interest in the film lies mostly in the reactions by the 3 women affected by the psychological rape, and the fear of being killed by this monstrous man. It is a curious film about power and submission that doesn't always work, but the parts that do are excellent, and definitely worth watching.

Written by William Mastrosimone based on his play, and directed by Robert M. Young, "Extremities" is 89 minutes long, is often intense, and has great interaction between its 4 fine actors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Farrah at her best! March 13, 2007
Format:DVD
A must see film starring Farrah Fawcett. I feel she is never given enough credit as an actress. This film is intense and shows another side of the ex Charlie's Angel. She orginally performed on broadway for a year with the play of the same name. One of her best films along with Burning Bed and Poor Little Rich Girl and Beate Klarsfeld "Nazi Hunter".

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough, brutal film with Fawcett deserving of Award October 25, 2006
Format:DVD
What is it going to take for Hollywood to recognise the artistry of Farrah Fawcett and give her the accolades and awards she is due?. No I am not biased being a fan. Here she is stripped of ALL glamour and make up and performs from the gut. If Charlize Theron could win an Oscar for Monster then surely Farrah deserved to be recognized for this performance, a repeat of a role she took in the Off Broadway production. Extremeties is the story of a woman to exacts revenge on a would be rapist and traps him in her fireplace. Much of the first half of the movie focuses on the abuse that Marjorie (Fawcett) endures at the hands of the 'rapist' (brilliantly played by James Russo) before she turns the tables on him and 'captures' him. Excellent support is provided by Alfre Woodward and Diana Scarwid as the room mates who become embroiled in the saga of whether to kill the rapist or call the police.
Its a tough and brutal film which is hard to watch at times. But, its Fawcett who drives this movie with a solid gut wrenching performance that the influential TIME MAGAZINE described in their REVIEW thus: " her unadorned artistry singes" High praise indeed.
It would have been great if MGM could have added 'extras' to this dvd...where are the commentary tracks or deleted scenes?

When I first saw this movie 22 years ago, I was very young and didn't appreciate the acting in what will be a classic. Now, older and wiser, I can say this is a damn good movie to have in your dvd and a must for your Farrah Fawcett collection. However, Farrah is not the only great actor or actress in this movie. The supporting cast balanced to Farrah's great acting. One wonders how she went from her silly sexy roles from Sunburn, Somebody Killed Her Husband, and Saturn 3 to become an excellent actress in this movie and later others. Unfortunately, Farrah never was given a serious Oscar main role in the movies, like Marilyn Monroe, Farrah reverted back being a sex symbol, when she an excellent actress. Farrah plays Marjorie, who is almost raped once to be denied protection by the police and followed by the rapist to her home. James Russo makes an excellent psycho villian in this role. Also, Diana Scarwid, (Christina, "Mommie Dearest") and Alfre Woodard, (Desparate Housewives) provide an excellent supporting cast as Marjorie's roommates. The acting is above average here. As we all know, the tables are turned from rape victim to rapist and Marjorie seeks justice and safety. The late Farrah Fawcett uses this movie to educate and inform viewers about the injustice rights of raped victims. As, unfortunately, she will later on use her own real life to educate viewers about facts and the injustice of not finding cures for cancer patients. Farrah will be go on enternal. Buy this great movie and enjoy.
