    Once this movie gets going, there’s no stopping it. That’s the perfect way to describe Fatal Attraction, a psychological thriller with an edge of its own brought on by director Adrian Lyne. When married man Dan Gallagher (Michael Douglas) has an affair with Alex Forrest (Glenn Close), he tries to end it, but she refuses to let go. The end result is one of the most iconic female villains of all time. The acting in this is amazing…

    ★★ Rewatched by Brian J. "Tyrannorabbit" Wright 22 Oct, 2014

    Likely intended (and certainly promoted) as a feature-length exercise in making women turn to their husbands and say "See? SEE?!?", time has not been entirely kind to Fatal Attraction. Most obviously, the Crazy Bitch archetype this movie exploits has somewhat fallen out of fashion, in film as in (I should hope) culture in general. I mean, you show me a Crazy Bitch, chances are I'll show you a guy whose posting history suggests there's another side to this story.

    There's…

    The most intense thriller of the decade, an 80s classic! This is a romantic nightmare film, which is really quite unique, and the actors are brilliant. I loved this movie, and I highly recommend it.

    I think I've seen bits and pieces of this since I was 5 so I finally gave it a shot. It's a fun thrill ride that I'd love to watch at least once a year. Douglass is good but Close is where it's at. A sudden 360 craze makes her so damn eerie it's amazing her mental state in real life didn't falter.

    Fatal Attraction is a stylish thriller that never reached its full potential, although it was solidly made on most regards. Given its great cast and its engaging premise, it should have been much, much better. Concerning the performances, they were almost flawless. Michael Douglas was good as usual; Glenn Close, in one of her most memorable performances, did a wonderful job; and Anne Archer was great as well.

    Adrian Lyne's direction was very good, but the writing was noticeably flawed.…

    People who have seen this movie like to make jokes about it, about crazy lovers scorned and the infamous "I won't be ignored, Dan." line. But this is actually a very well made film.

    The acting is superb, the writing is solid, and the direction gives us wonderful imagery and intimacy to go with everything else.

    It's a simple story that plays out all the repercussions of an impulsive mistake and lets the complexity of the characters drive it home. By the time we get to the end, it's hard not to be invested in the story and what happens.

    Can't recommend this movie enough.

    I'm still trying to figure out if he's a good director or just a good exhibitionist, but one thing is certain: Adrian Lyne knows how to make a damn sexy film. It's the kind of film where you can just feel the heat and sweat off the actors' bodies, which just gives everything a sense of texture. Alex Forrest might be one hell of an unbelievable villain, but it's a testament to the pretty…
