VERDICT – 4/5

 

 

PROS –
1) A happily-married lawyer’s one-night stand became a nightmare when the woman turns out as a psychopathic stalker who makes his life hell. 
2) The plot can be summarised in one line however the entire movie is elevated by some intense performances from Michael Douglas and Glenn Close. The 2 fight scenes in the last 15 minutes are brilliantly executed.
3) Glenn Close’s performance is definitely Oscar-worthy. Her performance in the movie is a final warning signal for all wannabe adulterer. 

 

 

CONS –
N/A
