Overall customer rating: 5.000

Suave menace.

by Sivvie on Apr 8, 2011

Gwyneth Paltrow and Michael Douglas are superb here, each looking stunning, with Douglas' suave menace playing havoc with his rich wife's nerves. As the camera pans across the skylight of an old building, the accompanying music adding to the foreboding, you know you can count on some masterful direction. In this building an unkempt artist (Viggo Mortensen) is meeting with Emily (Paltrow) in a passionate, sexual affair. And her husband knows. Herein lies the plot, for this husband is no pussycat but a psychopath who, in a nasty twist, blackmails Mortensen to kill his wife. Lush, rich venues, a moody, charismatic New York and a life to die for - literally - all add up to one of the most watchable movies of all time. Douglas has really perfected the character who plays a double game and Paltrow is just right as the wife who is beginning to find out her husband is not all he seemed when they first married. But it is Andrew Davis' direction which makes this film into the perfect thriller - edge of seat stuff - which will be enjoyed again and again.
