I would kill for Diane Lane.
the acting was good, and I was pleased that the dog didn't die, but that's all it had going for it, and the non-ending made me feel insulted enough about their lack of respect for my time to bring it down from average.
I'm aware this makes me some kind of uncultured Neanderthal, but I have no appreciation for drama for the sake of drama. I need to like the characters or get a deeper message or feel entertained or something. its not enough for me to just go "wow, it sure sucks to be them." I get no enjoyment from that. particularly when it's their fault it sucks to be them.
I'm also vaguely astounded and semidistubed at just how much violent sex can be shown on network tv in the middle of the afternoon on a nonschool day. Not that I don't understand the appeal of rough sex, I very much do, but I shudder to think how many pubescent boys maybe stumbled on that mess during a sex scene and went "huh, she's saying no, but look how much she likes it anyways" and will go on about their lives with that planted in their brains.
so. yeah. anyways. yay for movie dog living, bah to the rest of you.
her scenes are beyond erotic and unbelievably sexual...excellent movie and performance by lane.
