Audience Reviews for The Last Seduction

  • Jun 12, 2013
    The most diabolical femme fatale bitch of all times incomparably played by ruthlessly sexy Fiorentino, paying proper tribute to Wilder's noir trademarks. Worth-watching. 76/100

    An efficient film noir with a clever plot and an extremely diabolical femme fatale played by a very inspired Linda Fiorentino. Also deserving praise is Bill Pullman, who is surprisingly funny as the furious husband trying to catch her in this witty cat-and-mouse game.

    The last seduction must have been one of the best thrillers during the 1990's with one of the best female acts I've ever seen. Linda Fiorentino did a remarkable job as the femme fatale stealing her husband's drug money. It was all about lies, taking advantage of people and hidden secrets.Bill Pullman played an interesting character as the husband trying to track down his wife. But it was Peter Berg, who stood out in the movie as the young man falling in love with Fiorentino, and ofcourse Linda Fiorentino herself who steals this movie. Every scene with those two in entertained, both on a comedy and dramatic and the sex scenes were amazing, all thanks to the great directorial hand by John Dahl. Peter Berg had an interesting face accompanied by a terrific sense for acting, giving his character the extra sensitive touch the movie required. This is a movie that will stand the test of time, it started a bit slow in the begining but catched up very quickly.

    Director John Dahl and actress Linda Fiorentino accomplish a very difficult task; to make you simultaneously empathize with and despise the character of Bridget Gregory. Probably one of the best femme fatale's to ever grace the screen.
