    I can't believe David Cronenberg was in this. 8 years 5 months ago

    I like To Die For more when it's being a send-up of the "I need to be on TV to feel validated" culture than when it's busy being a sex'n'murder thriller, but that's me. Nicole Kidman shows she had the chops for comedy as Suzanne Stone, a would-be television journalist who doesn't know what the heck she's talking about but is convinced she has all the tools required to be big. Buck Henry's script is devilishly good at dramatic irony, and the film's structure hanging on how television is treating the events (but with an omniscient eye actually looking at them) is a clever one. Lots of recognizable faces from film and television in this, some before they were proper stars, and even having realized this, was still surprised to see David Cronenberg makes an appearance (and what a well-chosen role). I certainly don't mean to say it's not GOOD as a crime story - it's certainly a sensationalistic one - but the flashback structure means we're watching a done deal unfold and the tension is limited. Even within that, the movie still keeps a few surprises in reserve and makes for a fun experience, albeit one that might make some viewers uncomfortable. 1 year ago
