A touch of Lauren Bacall (Einstimmung)

von: Michael Engelbrecht Filed under: Blog | TB | Tags:  4 Comments

 

 

Linda Fioretino is a hot shot in John Dahl‘s brilliant and quite low-budget thriller The Last Seduction (1993). A true amazon on the dark side of things, cold humour, cold heart, extremely manipulative and hot sex. The  company wanted a sexploitation movie, but what they got was an art movie with thrills and long goodbyes. A role model for assertive behaviour Linda surely was: if women forget about the sociopath aspect, she can really encourage boldness. I saw one of the „behind the scenes“-shootings: as everybody was preparing for a scene, Linda Fiorentino was just kissing young Bill Pullman. Really pressed her lips on his for quite a time. Out of the moment, just for fun. No instructions – by instinct only. She laughed. Impressive.

    Dann würde ich hier von einem film noir der 2. Generation sprechen – der Unterschied zu den 40ern liegt dann darin dass hier nicht ein fehlbarer schweigsamer Held agiert – die erste Manifestation des broken hero, wie ich es nenne in Abhebung zu Herren mit John-Wayne-Glorienschein – sondern eine clevere skrupellose Frau. Gibts noch mehr dergleichen in dieser Zeit?

  2. Michael Engelbrecht:

    In meiner Erinnerung zumindest first class neo noir in den Neunzigern: L.A. ConfidentIal mit Kim Basinger

    Regie Curtis Hanson, dessen old school movies ich gerne sah.

  3. Jörg R.:

    Aber Lauren Bacall ist doch nicht wirklich zu toppen, oder?

  4. Michael Engelbrecht:

    Nicht wirklich, Jörg😉
