What a Guilty Pleasure Is Made Of.. (by vasco_cid)
Erotic thrillers are nothing new. Everybody knows that. After Basic Instinct there was little territory left to explore in what regards the genre.. But can you call Killing Me Softly a cliché? Not Really. At least in my opinion. So what can explain the bad reviews and box office results? First it was a platform movie and not a wide release, second none of the leads are big stars, and third this genre normally doesn't have many financial results. So is it top notch? Well some things are, and others aren't at all. The cinematography and art direction is flawless and the soundtrack is <more>
very close to sublime. The screenplay is hardly what you can call acceptable, it is a lousy draft that should have been re-written, and while Chen Kaige's the director camera has some very interesting movements, it's the way he directs his actors that ruins everything. Heather Graham's performances is without a doubt one of the worst performances i remember watching in cinema, alright she looks stunning on screen and looks good naked, but is that enough? Not really. And also I believe the costume designer had some laughs at her expense, as she looks a corny doll sometimes. So what makes it good for me? Well I guess that everyone who likes this movie is not because of it's genuine qualities. I think that this is that sort of movie that it is so bad that it is actually very good. It's a future camp classic, the way it shows the British atmosphere and all..The reason why Killing Me Softly isn't a better movie was because it is too rushed. The running time is way too short, Heather Graham is miscast although she has chemistry with Joseph Fiennes , some of the dialogues are unbelievable and some scenes should have been longer and better scripted. But altogether as I told before this is a very very good guilty pleasure, that's why I give it a high score..
Well, I had to register just to reply to this film s critics... whether the plot is the most sophisticated thriller, or whether the love scenes were copied from another "masterpiece", really friends is beside the point. Every woman wud like to meet a man like Fiennes' character and be swept off her feet and have great sex and all the attention in the world and total committment asked and given... I think most of those who did not like the film must be men cause they feel this and know, boy dont they know they've not the guts to be a man like that... well, I recommend this <more>
film as a truly romantic love story and the kinky sex is also not the point of te story. Girls, u will really love this and Joseph Fiennes is, of course wonderfully gorgeous and convincing and lovable in every scene, and the wedding night idea i find absolutely brilliant... i give this film a 10. Ha!
After some of the comments posted here, I was thinking that this movie would not really be all that. Being a Joseph Fiennes groupie I found that the movie is worth watching. It could have had a little more drama and a little more suspence but other than that it was a good movie. The half naked Joseph and half naked Heather are added perks to the movie and not what carries the movie. It is a shame that it has not yet made to to the screen here in the US. I had to buy my un-edited dvd version from Ebay. was worth the purchase.
Really Great Movie (by ladybird1995)
I really enjoyed this movie and would recommend it to friends. I think that Heather Graham and Joseph Fiennes did a wonderful job of using their eyes to convey the message they were trying to send. Natascha McElhone also did really well at playing her part. It was hard not to get lost in the movie. The music really told the story also. I do wish the ending had been different. There were so many twists and turns in the movie. Sometimes I didn't know what to expect. I think that Heather Graham looked very beautiful and innocent. I think the director and writer of this movie should have <more>
gotten a lot of credit. Heather Graham and Joseph Fiennes should be in another film together their chemistry really showed.
Great movie OF ITS KIND - Woman in trouble, no-one believes. (by sehalsey)
I got the DVD for one reason only - Heather Graham. She is without a doubt one of the most beautiful women who ever existed. Far above, for example, the plastic dolls of Vegas. She has the angelic face to match Jennifer Finnegan Close to Home , but with the killer body to match - anybody.For my knee-jerk unthinking choice, I was rewarded with a probably the hottest scene I can ever remember in a movie, and b some appreciation for a new genre of story I had never really noticed or paid attention to before - "Woman in grave danger, no-one believes her."First for THE SCENE - <more>
actually the long, extended scene. From the moment she first lays eyes on the climber, to her fidgety, obsessed morning at work, to the virtually mute cab ride, to the outrageous, amazing, shocking confrontation in the apartment, we have one of the greatest sexual encounters of all time. And, as a small bonus, it stars, did I mention, HEATHER GRAHAM.Now for the "Woman in grave danger, no-one believes her" genre. Normally a macho, NFL, Dirty Harry, Lawrence Block, James Ellroy type of guy, I had gotten interested in woman storytellers, enjoying the differences in character portrayal and thought processes. So, assuming that "Nicci French" was a woman, I got some other books by the same author. Turns out that this is a pseudonym for a husband-wife team - an interesting concept in itself - what kind of characters does a pair of male+female equals come up with. Their other books are all similar - take place in London and involve a young woman who begins to realize she is in mortal danger, but becomes increasingly isolated from the outside world because nobody else will believe her - thus she is forced to rely on her own newly-discovered strengths to save herself. I suppose many would call that trite, but heck I really enjoyed the whole thing, and I am a Redskins fan...As far as the story goes, I sympathized mainly with the boring but solid schlub that she leaves for the sex-magnet. Heather's character deserved what she got - but she was SO BLANK BEAUTIFUL while getting it.
This movie was sexy, yet a little disturbing.Heather Graham portrays an American who recently moved to London. She has a nice, safe relationship with her boyfriend, an Englishman who is very reliable. You can tell that they are both comfortable with each other, but because of that their romance has died off and has made things quite boring. One day, she encounters Adam, a mysterious man on the street. The looks they give each other are lustful and very intense. What chemistry! The looks itself were sexy and erotic! And can I just say...Joseph Fiennes is one helluva sexy man! Oh my goodness! <more>
He can play the hopeless romantic in Shakespeare in Love and the dangerous rugged type in this film. Well anyway...they get involved in a very obssessive, sexual relationship. They get right down to business...the scenes are like whoa! Sexy Sexy Sexy! Eventually, all the lust turns into love. However, they know very little about each other which drives Graham's character, Alice, mad. Unexpected secrets are revealed...and believe me! they BIG secrets...which starts to crumble their affair. I liked this movie a lot! It's not Oscar worthy...but its worth your time. This movie has a lot to offer...romance, sex, lust, drama, thrill, and most of all...entertainment!
I really feel that I have to defend this movie after the ripping it has gotten here. I watched the film without knowing anything about it, and I really enjoyed it. Heather Graham was easy on the eye, and Joseph Fiennes was suitably dark and brooding. I think that the sex scenes, probably allowed people to view this as a cheap skin flick, which is a pity. They probably should have gone further to ensure that Fiennes was viewed as a sadist, and therefore very capable of killing. There was plenty of tension, and the music was suitably Hitchcockian. If anything, Joseph Fiennes character was too <more>
laid back towards the end. As the tension was mounting, more could have been made of the fact he appeared to be a murderer. Instead he was allowed to sit back and protest his innocence. I think had it been a Hitchcock film we would have been in no doubt he had done it, until the end. The sister could have been a really sinister character, but again lacked any development. I am not blaming the actors for this, it is obviously the script. Heather Graham is a better actress than people are giving her credit for here. I think with the lack of development in the Fiennes, and sister characters, she was left to carry the film alone, which she did admirably. I would recommend this film, just watch without prejudice. Incidenally, I married my wife after six days, and without knowing anything about her. We are still married after 32 years, so perhaps Heather was not so crazy, as stated in some of the earlier reviews.
I saw the movie 3 weeks ago and i was SHOCKED!!!!!! the story is very weird and complicated! and the love scenes OH MY GOD..... Joseph Fiennes is very sexy and hot man. i think that Joseph could do better movies he is very talented actor, i saw him in Shakespeare in love he was great. KILLING ME SOFTLY it's not that bad movie, things happen in life! we fall in love with wrong people, we make bad decisions.... and that what happened to Heather Graham in the movie, she was swept away with her feelings and did things with out thinking. i think the most important thing that you can enjoy the <more>
