It Was Just a Booty Call!!!

Geez, talk about a Crazy White Bitch!! This movie was assigned for my girlfriend to watch for college regarding the topic of mental disorders and instead of letting her suffer alone, i decided to watch it with her; after all how much could one movie hurt me? The buildup of the situation was steady and at a pace everyone could follow, especially when she drops the bomb on him and shows her true sid... read more

Wow! Fatal Attraction is indeed a fatal attraction between the actors powerful performances, strong direction and screenplay and the audiences who are watching the film! There were quite a few similarities to this film that I have watched before such as Cape Fear (both original and remake) and the film adaptation of Stephen King's famous novel Misery. It is a story of obsession, desperation and al... read more

The story is pure melodramatic trash which sees the family foundation needing to be protected at all costs, but Glenn Close’s performance and Adrian Lyne’s stylish, tense direction make it worth viewing.

In fact, Close single-handedly elevates the entire movie from pulpy trash to Oscar caliber material. Her performance is a fierce, vulnerable and slowly unraveling turn of one w... read more

Description: While his wife (Anne Archer) and daughter are out of town, successful attorney Dan Gallagher (Michael Douglas) has a one-night stand with Alex Forrest (Glenn Close), the publishing executive he has just met.

Driven to madness by his rejection, she turns to violently harassing both Dan and his family. This terrifying morality play, which takes the consequences of infidelity to new heights of horror, became one of 1987's biggest box-office successes. Academy Award N ... (more)

"12.5. (Teatteri/35 mm) Vad helvete, tajusin jossain puolentoista tunnin kohdalla, että minähän olen muuten nähnyt tämän. Elokuva on sentimentaalinen, mutta onnistuneesti. Samalla tämä on ristiriitaista, sillä elokuvan "hirviö" korostaa ristiriitaista tunnetta, sitä samaa jota halki kauhuelokuvan (tai trillerihän Vaarallinen suhde on) historian on fiilistelty: lopulta perhettä riivaavaa naista pystyy kaikesta hirvittävyydestään huolimatta ymmärtämään. Hän on psykoottinen ja"

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (1980's) (153 movies items)

" Notes: When it was released, it has a huge hit. Nowadays, it would seem impossible that a thriller like this one would ever again become the biggest movie of the year with all these huge blockbusters but, back in 1987, this movie managed to be the highest-grossing film worldwide. Anyway, in the erotic thriller genre, it is definitely a classic. In my opinion, what made this movie really worked was the perfect cast. Indeed, Michael Douglas was basically born to play such guys (see also ’Basic"
