Well, Melanie Griffith Assures Here That (Death Becomes Her) Wasn't a Fantasy After all !
This is the closest you can ever have to a sleeping pill. Actually the tedium here comes with so many ways (maybe all the known ways!), being the most hypnotist thriller I've seen, I know that I fell asleep more than once during the watching ! A lot of people don't perceive that weariness could come from many uncommon sources, one of them is the voice's rhythm, and I do not need to remind anyone how Miss. Griffith got one of the most boring voices EVER ! Yet her way of delivering her lines reaches to the next level of provocation this time ! Listen to her, OH MY GOD, scene like the one in which she screams to one of the characters "You're My Whore !" seemed really laughable with her damn child-like tone. And aside from the fact that in the history of "bad performance" she had a genuine signature, her face here looked horrible with a capital H ! She became a total freak out of too many plastic surgeries. Her face appeared as unpolished plastic mask, reflecting the lights like a badly-made Barbie doll ! And when it comes to her lips well, let's not bring up the matter of the lips ! So how about acting as a femme fatal in the same freaking time ?? (lethal seduction indeed!). She made it clear through this work : Death Becomes Her wasn't fiction story, it's a fact a lot of Hollywood stars live it, wanna witness it yourself, so watch this TV movie!. I hated everything about it. While the plot is not bad, the characters are poor, the narration is so dull, and the directing is nonexistent. Somebody should've told the invisible director earlier that there are elements to make the thrill, the suspense, the movies ! but obviously nobody did. It's ideally tasteless (even the painting of the lead on the wall was awful!). It's rare when I say about one movie "what a waste of time and money" This is unmistakably one of them. If there is ever a DVD for it, just buy it to burn it and extricate the world from one version of it ! Otherwise, it's great cure if insomnia is the problem !
Ahh where is Dina Meyer when you need one ?!
