(1989, dir. Michael Caton-Jones)

Contrary to the pic, I didn't see the uncut and uncensored version (at least I don't think so) — I saw this on IFC. John Hurt and Joanne Whalley make this film worthwhile, and raise it above a Cinemax special, although there's certainly enough sex to upset your mom. The story goes for a movie-of-the-week treatment near the end, but it's still an interesting view into swinging upperclass London. Features Roland Gift of the Fine Young Cannibals in his underwear and shooting a pistol (not at the same time). Also of note: Director Caton-Jones just recently delivered Basic Instinct 2.

3.0/5.0
