The Reviews for Single White Female (1992) 1080p

Friends? No! Its much more then that!Reviewed bypzivojinovicVote: 8/10

This is a tense thriller about an obsessive woman who becomes too enthralled in someone else's life, and even gets herself mixed up in lies, deceit and other bad activities, and the cycle of problems just gets more momentum. The basic plot is that Allison (Bridget Fonda) gets a roommate for her Manhattan apartment (has anyone ever seen an apartment this large in NYC??) after her skirt-crazy live-in lover Sam (played by "Wings" star Steven Weber) runs around on her. It's Headra "Hedy" (Jennifer Jason Leigh) to the rescue! This is one of my favorite suspense films. The setting is amazing, an old spooky apartment building but a gorgeous sparsely furnished apartment within. There really isn't a lot of violence in this movie, mainly just at the end. It's a good suspense movie, though, which builds and builds. The film is stylish, thanks to Luciano Tovoli (Suspiria) cinematography. Fonda and Leigh give strong performances in this movie. This is an underrated thriller, which is surprisingly clever movie.

Overall rating: 8 out of 10.

The promise is let down by a muddle of drama and actionReviewed byStampsfightclubVote: 6/10

After her partner moves out Allie Jones (Fonda) invites Hedra Carlson (Leigh) to move in, only Hedra has a few dark secrets and soon causes problems for her roommate.

The 1990's was a big step towards engaging actresses into more notable lead roles. Kathy Bates in Misery, Susan Sarandon and Gena Davis in Thelma and Louise and Jodie Foster in Silence of the Lambs turned many memorable Oscar winners and nominees in some fantastic pictures and the playing field seemed to generate more female stars who are still remembered today. So a year after Ridley Scott's dramatic Thelma and Louise picture in 1991 could Fonda and Leigh generate the same level of press attention and accolade? The premise was definitely there. The claustrophobic feel of the plot with a stalker of a room mate and obsession reflects the nature of Kathy Bates' character in Misery and the whole love and cheating concepts could easily merit those reflected in Scott's picture but this never materialized. We are left with some, what can only be described as dull and boring soap styled concepts. The whole 'my partner has left me and now I'm depressed' is as flat as a pancake and Leigh's inclusion, whilst initially spicing things up became equally dull.

What follows is a collection of mad antics by Leigh's awkward character and Fonda's struggling Allie. The pairing isn't too bad. There are some spicy moments that generate good drama and tension between the pair. The whole dog thing is a good reflection, as is the already mentioned stunning climax.

The direction by Schroeder is frequently muddled. From high shots to low shots and the inclusion of the odd tracking shots there is never a settling momentum to carry the picture through its dramatic stages. The final half an hour is well handled as the script notches up a gear into flowing momentum with a good final ending.

If you feel inclined to turn off after ten minutes then you can be forgiven as there is little to match your enthusiasm for this picture.

But if you get up to the inclusion of the dog then you may as well carry on as the final stages generate some stunning tension.

Single White Female is what you may call a wonderful promise that was horribly muddled. It's described as a dramatic thriller and the whole 'drama' part is evident throughout being soapier than a Dove product, but the thriller tag never is evident still the stunning climax that is great, but simply not justification of what we saw, and we are simply rolling our heads and imagining what could have been.

Single White Female is directed by Barbet Schroeder and adapted toscreenplay by Don Roos from the novel "SWF Seeks Same" written by JohnLutz. It stars Bridget Fonda, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Steven Weber, PeterFriedman and Stephen Tobolowsky. Music is by Howard Shore andcinematography by Luciano Tovoli.

When it's revealed that her partner Sam (Weber) has been cheating onher with his ex-wife, Allie Jones (Fonda) kicks him out of theapartment and advertises for a female roommate. She chooses HedraCarlson (Leigh), who on the surface seems to be the perfect roommate.Smoothly helping Allie through her crisis, a real friendship is formed,but it's not long before Hedra starts to exhibit some dark behaviourpatterns…..

The early 90s saw the "Woman from Hell" back in vogue in mainstreamcinema. After the success and publicity of Fatal Attraction (1987),there was a period where you feel that sensible film makers wiselychose to let that particular film disappear from the film lovers memorybanks. As it happens, they must have collectively chose 5 years as thecooling off period. For 1992 saw a wave of mad female on the loosepictures released. Led by the publicity gobbling Basic Instinct, filmssuch as The Hand That Rocks the Cradle and Single White Female put bumson cinema seats and reopened the "Mad Bitch" sub-genre. Of the three,Single White Female grossed the least, which is strange since it's abetter movie than the other two.

Schroeder's (Barfly/Reversal of Fortune) movie isn't a completesuccess, there's not enough development of the main characters andthere's some unintentionally funny moments. But when it's good it'sreal good. Reeling off a number of memorable and often chilling scenes,film is further boosted by the psychological smarts in Roos' (Boys onthe Side) screenplay. It helps that Schroeder has a knack for pacing,too, where he neatly simmers the plot until the spill over for the bigfinale. No disappointment there either, a good combination of genrestaples is enhanced in impact by some unexpected characterdevelopments, and there's moments of genuine suspense to lure theviewer to the edge of their seat.

It's also stylishly shot by Schroeder and Tovoli (Suspiria/Tenebrae).Allie's Upper West Side apartment is imposing and expansive, with highceilings, old time plumbing, a clunky lift and a dingy laundry in thebasement. It's a different set-up for such a thriller, no picket fenceharmony house or beach side residence, this is bustling New York, bigspaces, but as it turns out, that means no hiding place. The boysbehind the cameras get the maximum they can from the locale by blendingimposing and ominous with grainy veneer and filtered light. On theacting front, the girls put great effort into making their thinlydeveloped characters work, with Leigh doing a good line in progressiveinstability. While Friedman, Weber and a wonderfully naughtyTobolowsky, make the most of their secondary roles.

One or two obvious flaws aside, this still rounds out as a thoroughlyenjoyable thriller. 7.5/10
