Carl Mazzocone Sr.,
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 ?!
