    #10 in my 80's Week marathon. ("Week" is a funny word, isn't it?)

    Since they're still making Psycho Women thrillers (they pop up every now and then), it must be said that this film has gone on to be surprisingly influential. Certainly moreso than Romancing the Stone (sorry, Kathleen). Hearing the cast speak about making the film (for this viewing, I whipped out my trusty 2002 Special Collector's Edition DVD), it would seem the intent with Glenn Close's character was…

    I have to be honest: i was really looking forward to watching this again for the 1st time in about 20 years, and enjoying the campy, nostalgic, glorious badness, but damn--this film hates Glenn Close's character so much I was forced to give up in disgust after 54 mins.

    avoid crazy chicks.
    don't cheat or else...
    protect the family unit.

    Fatal Attraction is basically a poetic name for "White People Problems."

    dat ending tho. wowzer.

    Full review: trashcity.org/BLITZ/BLIT2944.HTM

    This iconic eighties film has not stood the test of time well, in comparison to the not-dissimilar Basic Instinct from a few years later. The problems are two-fold. Firstly, why would successful, happily married Dan Gallagher (Douglas) cheat to begin with? The script miserably fails to establish any credible justification for this. Yet, barely have wife Beth (Archer) and moppet Ellen (Latzen) headed out of town on a house-hunting expedition, and he's leaping into bed - not…

    Ho guardato Fatal Attraction di notte e ho dormito malissimo, ma per tutte le ragioni giuste. Mi ha stupito e spaventato e divertito da morire. Beth Gallagher unica eroina.

    An insanely intense, crazy, horrifying film about an affair that spirals out of control and into madness.

    Michael Douglas plays a husband and business man who has it all, he's fairly good in this its only when things start to go out of his control that you see very interesting moments and thoughts come out of him. His terrified points of action brilliantly continue to rise during the course of the film. Glenn Close is 110% terrifying. One thing that…

    I used to take issue with Douglas' character, thinking he deserved the torment after throwing Close away after their fling, but watching it without the feminist lens this film has always seemed to have had since the 80s, it was pretty obvious this time around that she was off her rocker right from the start, and that both she and Douglas had discussed the drop dead date of the tryst before they even started. That she's pregnant puts the onus…
