Light and funny but also dark, suspenseful and good. Great acting (especially by Kidman), and Van Sant is interesting as always, choosing beautiful people (actors/characters) that are a bit (or a lot) off.

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Supreme achievement in editing

Gus Van Sant deserved an Oscar for directing this great picture. The editing is a supreme work of art and very underrated. The usage of flashbacks was very effective and drives the story forward instead of showing what "the viewer already knows" like most flashback movies. If you are interested in a rare gem, take a look at this film. It is a lot better than most give it credit for. And Nicole Kidman is truly "to die for."

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Casey Affleck beat out his older brother Ben Affleck as well as his childhood friend Matt Damon for the role of Russell Hines. When asked why he chose Casey over the rest, Gus Van Sant stated that he noticed that Casey still had a strong Boston accent, while Ben and Matt had lost theirs, he also got the feeling that Casey was scrappier than the other two.

A dud. It's a TV movie of the week with a big budget, big stars and larger sets.

This film by Gus van Sant is based on the ambitions of Suzanne Stone, a weather girl from a local TV station who wants to achieve fame and success at any cost. When her rich husband becomes a problem, she decides to arrange a lover to killThis film by Gus van Sant is based on the ambitions of Suzanne Stone, a weather girl from a local TV station who wants to achieve fame and success at any cost. When her rich husband becomes a problem, she decides to arrange a lover to kill him. A simple plot, but with good premises for what Van Sant wanted: a kind of black comedy about sex, ambition and manipulation. He skillfully presents most of the film as a documentary, using cinematography and some visual and sound tricks to give more authenticity to that illusion. Nicole Kidman carries the film in her back with grace and malice, and seems very ease with her character, a girl who uses all the weapons to get what she wants. The remaining actors make a good supporting work, but are completely overshadowed by her talent.

This movie is likely to appeal to black humor lovers. It's not a thriller or mystery movie, it's all pretty obvious to the public since the beginning. However, Kidman's performance is already a reason to make the film worth watching.
