The review of this Movie prepared by Patti Illsley

Bridget Gregory is beautiful, intelligent, and married to a doctor -- but it's not enough. For one thing, Clay Gregory is sleazy and abusive. So after Bridget persuades her husband to sell a bunch of medicinal cocaine to some drug dealers, she takes off with the $700,000 and goes into hiding. Left holding the bag with a loan shark who threatens severe bodily harm, Clay sends several private detectives on Bridget's trail, which leads to a small town near Buffalo. While there, she picks up Mike Swale, a rather dumb small-town boy dazzled by her beauty, street smarts, and the hot sex, and Bridget devises a plan to get rid of her husband once and for all. This 1994 John Dahl production was first shot on video and aired on cable before being transferred to film stock, which is why Linda Fiorentino's ferocious and super sexy performance was denied an Oscar nomination it so richly deserved.

THE LAST SEDUCTION is a movie directed by John Dahl in 1994.

NYC. Linda Fiorentino leaves her husband Bill Pullman after having stolen the $700,000 he just earns in a drug deal. She decides to stay in a small town near Buffalo, changes her name and takes a job in the local insurance company as a marketing director. She seduces one her colleagues, Peter Berg, who falls madly in love with her. Linda will use him when the unhappy Bill Pullman, still after his money, reappears.

A superb film noir with a venomous Linda Fiorentino.
