Another reason there aren't many new Mariel Hemingway films
7 January 2008 | by (Rosebush) – See all my reviews

I watch movies for the stories, not to see some favorite actor or actress, so I'm no expert on the career of Ernest Hemingway's granddaughter who has not-yet-killed-herself. (Novelist Papa H. did himself in with a shotgun in Ketchum, ID in 1961, following in the self-annihilating footsteps of HIS own dad, while Mariel's sister Margaux did HERSELF in via drug overdose shortly after her younger sis upstaged her in that Lipstick flick). So while I remember Mariel in Woody Allen's Manhattan, and saw a lot of her in Personal Best, I'm not quite sure if she was in Manhunter or got her breasts enlarged to win the role of murdered Playboy Bunny Dorothy Stratton in Star 80.

Be that as it may, some may think it was a sick joke to cast Mariel in a film titled "Suicide Club," given her family curse. It would be akin to casting Fatty Arbuckle as the title character in "The Iceman Cometh." As for this movie itself, imagine Eyes Wide Shut without the Tom Cruise character. Nicole Kidman would have to carry the movie, wouldn't she? And Mariel Hemingway is no Nicole. In Suicide Club, she has one decent scene, which is no doubt why it is used twice--to both open and close the movie. The scene? Mariel has lapsed into a total catatonic state (that is, stone cold dead with eyes wide shut).
