I AM an erotic thriller
Infinitely more bizarre than any David Lynch film. I think it heartily satisfies but doesn't transcend the erotic thriller genre. My biggest complaint is Gere's yellow/orange/brown dye job and that there were basically no saturated colors anywhere in the film (is this a general post 9/11 cinema symptom?). Anyways, well worth the $1 I paid for it at an estate sale.
Oh, absolutely! What could be better? What's not to love?
This is one movie that actually lives up to its hype. It's fucking perfect, and very pretty. Perhaps my new "guys being dudes" movie of choice (though I wish at least a couple of the guys/dudes had given each other a little kiss, MacReady and Childs???? Would that be so WRONG!?)
Thank you John Carpenter! I'll give the bros a pass on being obsessed with you, it's warranted for once.
