I loved 'Kill Me Later' so much that I watched it twice in two days. Selma Blair gives a fantastic performance in this movie - one that is completely opposite from the quirky, young character she played in 'Cruel Intentions'. After seeing this film, I developed a great new-found respect for Blair and her ability as an actress. As her character, she was both serious and funny (in somewhat of a sarcastic way), and never 'over-acted' - something that many actors do, especially when playing an emotionally tormented character such as this one. Blair's performance in this film definitely deserves five stars. There is something intriguing about Blair and the elements of her personality that she brought to the character and the film as whole kept me very interested in her character. Max Beesley delivered a wonderful performance. I had never heard of him prior to this film, but I plan to keep a look-out for him from now on. Beesley, like Blair, never 'over-acted' in a role and a film that, I believe, was tricky to pull off successfully. Beesley brings his own personality to the film - one that is seemingly quite different from many actors. It's difficult to describe, but he's one of those actors that just by being on screen retain your interest and keep you guessing. Overall, Blair and Beesley did a fantastic job together - the chemistry on screen between them is blatantly obvious. It's a kind of personal chemistry between the two not only as characters, or actors, but as individuals. Blair and Beesley's compatability really shines through in this film. As far as the film goes, it was wonderfully interesting - definitely not your typical 'Hollywood' dramatic-comedy. The script was very well written, and the film directing was independently exquisite. The film cuts and the way the story was told through the use of time was very atypical and genuinely interesting. As stated earlier, the chemistry between Blair and Beesley was quite obvious as was the subtle emotional and sexual tension between the two characters; but the writer and director never gave into the typical 'Hollywood' unfolding of this type of story. 'Kill Me Later' was a wonderfully unique and entertaining film. It was truly independant and refreshing. I highly, highly recommend it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
