John Dahl's "The Last Seduction" captures the flavor of film noir perfectly. Bridgett (Linda Fiorentino)seems to have it all; she's beautiful, bright but married to a dead end job and a dead beat wannabe doctor Clay (Bill Pullman). Clay's pulled the ultimate drug deal; he's illegally purchased medications with cocaine in them and sold them to drug dealers on the street. To do this he borrowed $100,000 from a loan shark. With the profits, he plans on living in high style with his wife. Bridget has other plans. After a fight, she steals the money with the intention of keeping it all for herself. She disappears in a small town hoping to hold on to the money until her attorney (J. T. Walsh)can complete her divorce. Changing her name, she takes a job at an insurance company. She meets Mike Swale (Peter Berg)in a local bar. He's infatuated with her from the moment he meets her. "Wendy" as she's now called has plans for him and her ex that will allow her to keep all the money for herself.

A direct descendant of "Double Indemnity" (Bridget gives her name as "Mrs. Neff" at one point a tip of the hat to the classic movie and book)and other noir thrillers, "The Last Seduction" got dumped on cable but when the distributor realized it had such a great movie they released it to theaters. Widely lauded for her role, Linda Fiorentino could have scored an Oscar nomination--if not for the fact that HBO showed this before it was released to theaters. Bill Pullman turns in a twisted performance as Clay playing with the audience expectations created by his appearence in other movies as the good guy. He gives a great performance. There's hardly a weak performance in the film and Dahl's direction is so sure handed you'd imagine this was his tenth or twentieth film not one of his first. The late great J.T.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wicked Film Noir May 26, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
If you are looking for a movie that has black humor, intrigue, and in your face dialogue, look no further because The Last Seduction delivers. Linda Fiorentino has all the fun as the supreme ice queen Bridget.
In this clever story, Bridget has decided that her husband (Bill Pullman) is not as important as the money he received from a drug deal. She skips town with the cash only to hook up with the naïve Mike (Peter Berg) who will do anything for her, even murder. What transpires is too good to be true as sex and betrayal take center stage. The actors are outstanding and perfect for their roles. Fiorentino is a fireball who gives a ferocious performance worthy of an Oscar. Lacking any moral values, she lets it be known that messing with her will lead to trouble. Director John Dahl keeps the pace moving and throws in great twists right to the finish. This is a very underrated film noir and one that should not be missed.

If you are looking for a smart thriller, where you go along for the ride because you are never going to be able to catch up with what is going on, then "The Last Seduction" is a prime choice for your late night enjoyment. Directed by John Dahl and written by Steve Baranci, this 1994 film begins with Bridget Gregory (Linda Fiorentino) lording it over an office of telemarketers trying to sell collectible coins. Meanwhile, her husband Clay (Bill Pullman) has pulled his first drug deal and netted $700,000. However, as they talk about celebrating he makes the mistake of slapping her and by the time he gets out of the shower she has disappeared with the money. Of course, by the end of the movie when he are thinking that Clay made a mistake marrying Bridget in the first place. Bridget calls up her lawyer (J.T. Walsh) to find out what her options are preserving stolen money as a marital asset when she gets a divorce while Clay hires a private eye (Bill Nunn) to find her and get his money back because he has a loan shark who is not happy with him.
The obvious historical antecedent for "The Last Seduction" is "Double Indemnity," and when Bridget takes the name Wendy Kroy (look at it backwards) and starts working for an insurance company it is hard not to notice the similarities (that and she calls herself Mrs. Neff at one point). However, before that happens she hooks up with Mike Swale (Peter Berg) at a bar and is less than thrilled to see that he works there two. They continue to meet at the bar for sex and he keeps trying to get closer, but she is still on the run and needs to come up with a way of saving her life and the keeping the money (not necessarily in that order).

4.0 out of 5 stars Fiorentino is One Clever Dame! March 21, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
While considered modern noir the film is heavy on plot twists and it has one of the meanest femme fatales in movie history. Linda Fiorentino gives the performance of a lifetime and is a joy to watch, but, to my surprise, the supporting cast was also good, especially Bill Pulman. Nicely directed with a great script and some unexpected plot twists. But the backbone of the film is Linda Fiorentino, she is the ultimate bad-girl. This film became a cult hit on cable. From a scale of 1-10 I give this film an 8!

One of Linda Fiorentino better performances. Something I notice is that she can play the schemer very well. This movie and Jade are two of my favorites.

Last Seduction...triumph of evil villainess? and other issues.
The problem was/is, what kind of "victories" are these (for Bridget) as EVERYbody she deals with is abysmally STUPID...? And Peter Berg's character is TOO DUMB to be believed -- if he was a teenager, maybe.
