This week's neo-noir selection was John Dahl's nasty little thriller The Last Seduction, and it holds up well enough that you're even willing to overlook the ludicrously large cordless phones. Boy howdy, the cinetrix had forgotten what a delightful badass Ms. Bridget Gregory/Wendy Kroy is. Linda Fiorentino was never better. Sigh.
When I slunk in, a little late, there were only four students in the dark, all of them male. (Unlike the cinetrix, the noir prof makes screenings optional.) I can't wait to hear their reactions to the movie. Especially because in my mind the only thing I'm likely to hear as they speak is Fiorentino purring in a bad Eastern-Bloc accent, "Are you a weirgin?"
