Dangerous Liasons review

Today, I decided to sit down and watch Dangerous Liasons. And, boy, I was impressed. The script was brilliant, the direction excellent, and the acting (with the exception of Michelle Pfeiffer) was exceptional. John Malkovich was robbed of a best actor nomination for his performance and Glenn Close was brilliant. But Pfeiffer didn't impress me. I agree with supporting actress smackdown people that she relied to much on her appearence and she's unable to sell her character's emotions and torments. That said, I really liked this movie.

Blasphemous!!! Just kidding...I guess we can't all love everything but I loved Michelle in this [like I loved the entire movie]. Glad you watched though. It's a treat.

Yes, I'm glad I watched it too. It's currently my choice for Best Picture (Although I haven't seen Rain Man) and Best Actress. It definetly was a great film.

Rain Man is disappointing. I suppose I went in with too high expectations. Thinking if it won DL it had to be a masterpiece. It wasn't. But maybe you'll think differently. Can't wait for your thoughts. [and I did not enjoy Jodie Foster in The Accused, Glenn was robbed]

Foster was impressive in The Accused, but she couldn't make me believe that Sarah was the same person after her car accident. Close, on the other hand was flawless. I will see Rain Man soon.
