    Very subtle, mature directing. By the end I was sold on the coherent visual logic that Lyne built. Also very reminiscent of Hitchcock's work. Close reaches boiling point.

    There is a pretty wide range of Psycho Woman movie characters, and Glenn Close's character is at the far edge of "unhinged". The movie doesn't play coy with it, revealing her craziness early on, with just the threat escalating from there. There was still a bit of nuance though, times when she said things that sounded truthful and even right (especially about her pregnancy) if only the circumstances were different. But they are not, and this is probably what I…

    This all escalated very quickly. Fatal Attraction starts off simple and innocent enough given the erotic charge it has from the very beginning. Things quickly descend into chaos though once Glenn Close reveals the other side of her character. She is the absolute standout in this. Sure her and Douglas were both nominated for Academy Awards for this movie but she should have won. I haven't seen her this on her game since 101 Dalmatians. Which whether you like that…

    Play Misty For Me did the jilted-lover-out-for-revenge thing sixteen years earlier, but Fatal Attraction is the version that became a pop culture phenomenon and is often viewed as the prototype for this type of thriller. In some ways the film is a victim of its own success. Due to well-known plot details like the bunny boiling and the general familiarity of the story, I felt like I had seen Fatal Attraction before even though this was my first viewing. Hard…

    So I guess it shouldn't have come as any kind of shock when Michael Douglas said he was a sex addict. I mean mix this with Basic Instinct in 92' and Disclosure in 94' and it's pretty obvious the characters he is drawn to and ultimately does well with. In this one he is a successful, married, New York lawyer that has an affair with Glenn Close's character while his wife and daughter are out of town for the weekend.…

    Fatal Attraction, Starring Michael Douglas and Glenn Close. A thrilling romance-turned-nightmare drama. Film has got the wits of portraying the theme of it in rather sensational way, Michael Douglas plays his role in rather a typical imposing handsome man in attire, and Glenn plays it typical psycho; and so does the rest of the cast including Archer as an ideal housewife. Fatal Attraction has got some scenes which are totally bizarre and worth in this thriller, including Rabbit-boiling, and the intrusion by Michael into Close' home at the very end.

    Watching this movie is reading a really engaging novel, you can't wait to see what happens. The film starts off simple enough but then it builds and builds and builds until that final climax. Michael Douglas is, as usual, great and I don't think I've wished more horrible things upon a movie character more than Glenn close, as Alex Forrest. This movie is so intense, so intriguing, its amazing. When a movie can really make me care for the characters to the point I too feel affected, that must be one hell of a movie.

    Tame by 2015 standards, but with a great performance by Douglas. Glenn Close turns crazy a little too quickly but I guess you know what you're signing up for when you read the title.

    Predictable ending and felt a bit strangely paced, I couldn't sympathise with the mentally ill woman and felt she was portrayed as unrealistic. Plot was however, mildly entertaining and built up tension, especially in certain scenes. I liked the use of cuts to show contrast and portray emotion.
