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.Read more ›
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.
Still there's no excuse for Artisan's barebone tratement for the title. Not even a trailer is there! We waited so long for it to come out on DVD again and it must be one of the biggest disppointment of the year.

This gets the five stars, and more if it were possible, for sheer audacity in telling this story as is and for Fiorentino's unabashed take on the character. Read morePublished 1 month ago by jgus
Probably the most realistic portrait of a female sociopath in recent Hollywood movies. Some scenes can be studied to learn how such people behave.Published 1 month ago by kievite
It's one of my favorite movies. I love Linda Fiorentino's performance. Yes, some women can be evil.Published 2 months ago by Karen M. Harris
I saw a lot of Film noir-famme fatal movies before and I can tell that this director must have seen hundreds of them. This is not an ordinary film noir at all. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Hee Chul Kwon
