an interesting failure
4 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

I hadn't seen this film since its original release back in 1983. The only things I remembered about it were that (1) Nastassja Kinski was very beautiful and (2) the plot was an incoherent mess. Well, 20 years later nothing has changed. In addition to her beauty, Kinski offers an interesting performance, doing what she can with the ludicrous dialogue and plot machinations. Kinski seemed to have what it takes to become a top star but somehow this never fully came to pass, at least not in the USA. Maybe her appeal was too exotic for American audiences, or maybe she simply made too many questionable choices for projects to become involved in. In the case of "Exposed," she was given little help from James Toback's direction (he also appears early on as her college professor/lover and proves himself to be a most inept actor) or the truly awful performance of the late Rudolf Nureyev. Also, in this post-9/11 world, the whole terrorism plot made me most uncomfortable.
