Overview

Director John Dahl's The Last Seduction is an updated film noir centering around a seductive, cheerfully lethal femme fatale. Bridget Gregory (Linda Fiorentino) talks her gullible, easily manipulated, doctor-husband Clay (Bill Pullman) into pulling off a $700,000 drug deal to pay off his gambling debts. But while Clay is in the shower, Bridget quietly leaves with the money. She ends up in a bar in a small town where she meets Mike (Peter Berg) and uses him to further her scheme to keep the money and get rid of her inconvenient husband. Linda Fiorentino was championed by many critics for a Best Actress Academy Award nomination, but neither she nor the movie could be nominated since the film had made its debut on cable television.

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.
