The Last Seduction poster


March 25, 2022


A modern noir. The Last Seduction is a film that received quite a bit of praise, and it's easy to say why (though that doesn't mean it's necessarily a good film). If you dig that typical noir feel, and you're disappointed "they don't make 'em like they used to", then this is definitely a film for you.

Bridget is a killer chick. She wraps men around her fingers, involves them in her dirty little schemes, and then ditches them when she doesn't need them anymore. When her husband strikes it big in a shady deal, she steals his money and files for divorce. He's not willing to simply let her go like that.

Fiorentino does a decent job, but her character's just not as cunning as the plot needs her to be. It's difficult to root for her when the characters are pretty dumb and her plan isn't all that impressive. Not too taken with the styling either, the jazzy soundtrack feels lazy, and the cinematography is a bit dour. I expected more.
