Overview

John Dahl's superb neo-noir The Last Seduction comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that preserves the original aspect ratio of 1.33:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. There are no subtitles, but the soundtrack is closed-captioned. There are no supplemental materials, which is something of a disappointment considering this film's cult status. This film deserves a little better, but Artisan has priced this release affordably, making it worthwhile for any genre enthusiast.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
From Barbara Stanwyck in Double Indemnity to Lana Turner in The Postman Always Rings Twice to Jane Greer in Out of the Past to Kathleen Turner in Body Heat, the femme fatale is as juicy as a movie role gets. In The Last Seduction, one of the most interesting neo-noirs of the '90s, Linda Fiorentino makes a worthy addition to this pantheon. She's got all the sexiness, the braggadocio, the brains, and, most important, the answers. As expressed in her much-talked-about sex scenes, this character is pure dominatrix. . .with a subtle smile. This is clearly a role that Fiorentino sinks her teeth into, and she probably would have been nominated for an Oscar if the movie hadn't appeared on cable before its theatrical run, invalidating it for Academy selection. This was director John Dahl's third movie and third successful foray into modern-day film noir.

The director of Rounders and Red Rock West had made this terrific film noir that works on all levels. Female lead and femme fatale Linda Fiorentino is outstanding. Great story with a couple twists that you won't be expecting.

If Linda Fiorentino walked into my small town, I sure wouldn't marry her. She was a classic femme fatale in this film noir of the the middle 90's. The deceitful, shallow, and sociopathic woman has no mores, morals, scruples or anything redeemable to give to society, but many men think otherwise to their utter gullibility. Bad mistake for this hot woman!
