dir. John Dahl. Surprising, intricate 1990s film noir. The jazzy soundtrack suits the movie perfectly. Linda Fiorentino is the perfect seductive villain/anti-hero, it’s so much fun watching her machinations. She’s a charming sociopath, and her victims are such flawed abusive jerks that you never feel too bad about the carnage. Bill Pullman is just barely slimy enough for his role, he still seems like a nice guy underneath.
