Experience film noir like never before when a lowlife drifter (Don Johnson), who sells used cars in a Texas burg, robs the local bank and gets involved with two sultry women: one bad, one innocent. Based on Charles Williams 1952 novel Hell Hath No Fury and directed by Dennis Hopper, this steamy noir also stars Barry Corbin, Charles Martin Smith, Jack Nance, Jennifer Connelly, Jerry Hardin, Leon Rippy, Virginia Madsen and William Sadler.
Killing Me Softly
From the very moment that Alice (Heather Graham) locks eyes with Adam (Joseph Fiennes), a mysterious stranger, she is catapulted into a whirlwind of intense erotic desire and adventure, risking everything just to be with him. But when secrets from Adams past begin to surface, Alice finds herself in a bizarre and potentially lethal situation she cant escape. Acclaimed director Kaige Chen directs this contemporary suspense thriller, now on blu-ray for the first time UNRATED and UNCUT.

A very "attention to detail" oriented transfer that looks fabulous with eye candy colors.
He hits all the right buttons and choosing (probably begging) the virtuoso trumpeter Miles Davis to jam his modal riffs over the top of a REAL, down home, legit blues band (ala the Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters Chicago sounds)... MAN! WHAT.... A.... SOUNDTRACK!
Your ears eat it up - the sound track just moves this film. It is gorgeously photographed, beautiful old home town locations with authentically original antiqued Coca Cola paintings on the building opposite the car dealership.
Rich story, great acting all round, focused direction... Wow... Virginia Madsen is one great femme fatale! WHOA!
Killing Me Softly - now, there are a lot of negative "critic" reviews out there and I ALMOST listened to the nearly overwhelming animosity out there against this film and against Heather Graham in particular. However, I think Heather Graham is the REAL DEAL and I respected her WAYYYY back in Drugstore Cowboy and, especially, From Hell.
This movie is NOT at ALL over indulgent regarding the bad-mouthed "sexual" aspects of the film. Nothing tortuous, nothing violent, but there IS the HINT... of violence and that HINT is what keeps the viewer on the edge of their seat, ala Hitchcock or, even more so, Brian De Palma's "Obsession" and/or "Black Dahlia". The cinematography is tops, the director has style and class in the telling of the story and it is not exploitative about ANYTHING.
It's just a darn good film. And... it is a film that you can watch over and over again...Read more ›
The Hot Spot is a very good cross between Postman Ring Twice and Body Heat but the moral; standard but not totally predictable.
Killing Me Softly is a surprising movie; is looks like thriller but it is really something else; better not spoil.
None of them are great movies but deserve a new look. The only regret are that are both "R' versions and I know there unrated versions around.
Price is very reasonable.
I didn't want the other movie, titled "Killing Me Softly", because I had seen it before, and it is awful. Really, truly awful. It's dreck. Two fine actors trapped in movie hell - nothing works in this film. Not the script, not the editing, not the acting, not the directing - nothing. Run, don't walk away from this movie if you ever see it listed on a cable channel or on Netflix. I've already thrown the disc away.
