Director: John Dahl
Well, at long last I got around to The Last Seduction (1994).
I can see how well-meaning dopes would have cast Fiorentino in Jade on the heels of this movie, possibly trying to borrow some of the heat she brings to this film, but the two movies are worlds apart, and one is a 90's indie darling playing to a punchline, and the other is a shiny studio movie that feels like a hastily jotted-off airport-book thriller.
The Last Seduction reads more like a Goodis novel or Jim Thompson book, with low-level crooks twisting and turning over each other and innocence is a commodity of dubious value. Fiorentino plays a con who encourages her husband (Bill Pullman) to take part in a risky drug deal, earning a huge amount of cash. After a bitter argument in which Pullman slaps Fiorentino, when he goes to shower, she takes the money and runs.
Headed for Chicago, Fiorentino stops off in a small town in upstate New York, where her attorney advises her to lay-low while she runs a divorce through. She picks up Peter Berg in a bar (who believes he's picking her up). Berg has recently returned from Buffalo, where things didn't work out. He's a bit bummed as he thought he was the guy who was going to get out of this one-horse town. Now he's met someone from NYC who seems like his ticket out.
Fiorentino schemes. A lot.
