Barbet Schroeder follows up his masterpiece Barfly and his Oscar nomination for best director for Reversal of Fortune with this soapy, trashy thriller about an obsessive roommate. The whole story is telegraphed out from the moment Jennifer Jason Leigh starts acting like a wacko, which is pretty quickly and we just wait for the inevitable cat fight. The two leads are committed to this crummy material, but this is just a sleazy bore, even with the requisite nudity. I have nothing against Barbet Schroeder making a down and dirty exploitation romp, but Single White Female doesn't even deliver in the cheap thrills department.
