The Last Seduction * John Dahl (1994)

The calculated and super sexy bitch Bridget (Linda Fiorentino) runs off on her husband (Bill Pullman) with a substantial amount of cash. She ends up in “cowland” and has to improvise making an elaborate plan to be able to keep the money. The film has some 50’ies elements and generally is a bit of a Hitchcock-like film, not really a thriller in the modern sense of the word, but a film in which we watch a criminal mind work out a plan. The story plods along without great surprises, but is worked out well enough to remain interesting. “The Last Seduction” may be a not too special film, but a very well-done one. It reminds of the Wachowski’s early film “Bound” (1996) in a few ways. Btw. Dahl appears to be the director of the recent hit-series “Dexter” and “Californication”.
