I saw "Unfaithful" last night. Excellent!

Have you ever been dragged along to a film, thinking it would suck... only to find that it is excellent?

Well "Unfaithful" is a cracking little thriller that has all the subtlety and atmosphere of a "Sixth Sense" or "The Others". It isn't supernatural like those films, but it is the type of movie that people who like subtlety over smack-about-the-head.

The performances (particularly by Diane Lane) are amongst the best I've seen. I hate Richard Gere, but he is spot on here in a role that is so far removed from his usual stuff. He is really surprisingly good.

The showing I went to was pretty much full. So I think it will do well. The reviews I've seen have been mainly very positive and people will talk about this film.

I have to say. I loved it and thoroughly recommend it.

P.S. Yes, Lane gets naked (alot). But it's her acting that will effect you more than her perfect curves.
Trev.

Friends and I are going to see this either tonight or tomorrow. I've heard really, really good things about it, and the reviews in NY Times, Entertainment Weekly, Variety etc etc are all really positive. I also looked at the reviews and comments on IMDB.com and they really rate this movie as well.

I'm definately up for it. Apparently, it's alot less preditable than it sounds - which is cool.

Good to hear! I'm leaving work early tomorrow to go catch this. Diane Lane is one of my favorite actresses, Gere is OK, and it'd be nice to see Adrian Lyne have a hit again!

that's good news!

My girlfriend really wants to see it, and I wasn't super-keen on it 9mainly because of Richard Gere), but by the sounds of it, i may actually end up enjoying it!
Thanks for the info!

I'll be catching it tomorrow. This is one of those movies that I will see based only on my overwhelming love for the trailer (yeah, I am that shallow sometimes Posted Image ). The end music piece by E.S. Posthumus being the major draw Posted Image Shame it won't probably be in the film itself.

I love Diane Lane. I will make it a point to observe only her "acting." I too have only seen the trailers and the reviews that give it a good rating.

I'm gonna skip this one, but atleast Lyne has an actually attractive female lead for this one. I finally just saw Fatal Attraction (nice work on the disc, Paramount!), and Glenn Close topless scenes are harder on the stomach than the vomit-eating scene in Bad Taste.

Is that the music that's in the trailer? I LOVE THAT MUSIC. Besides the music, it's one of the best trailers I've ever seen. Eric, you're not alone.

While I'm not big on adultery-themed movies, I have to see this. It looks good, and because it will be wonderful to see Lane and Gere together again. The other film where they played a couple, The Cotton Club, is a favorite of ours. I've also been a fan of Diane Lane's since she was a kid in A Little Romance. She's a good actress, and she just keeps getting more and more beautiful.

Big kudos to whoever put together that trailer.

UNFAITHFUL - Brilliant filmmaking
I went to see this with friends last night and it was really, really good.

It was entertaining, engrossing, gripping and enjoyable. The dialogue could've been a bit better,but everything else was near perfect.

Diane Lane is gonna be a big star after this. Her performance is a powerhouse performance of Academy Award calibre. Not only her acting, but wow! She partakes in several of the best sex scenes (I mean artfully done) I've ever seen. I'm talking doggy style, I'm talking S&M, I'm talking an alleyway scene with Lane wearing nothing but a long mac and high heeled groin high boots, I'm talking oral in a cinema. She is simply superb throughout the film!

Scintilating and a very good thriller. I loved it (despite Richard Gere - who did a surprisingly good job aswell).

Highly recommended!

I saw it a couple of days ago, right after SW:E2. Perhaps that's the reason, but I didn't like it much. I had no idea what it was about beforehand and I hadn't heard about it. But I wasn't too impressed (though the naked parts weren't too shabby Posted Image).

This will be a big hit I think
When word of mouth gets out on how good this film is it will do well. It's sexy and cool and there's not much out there for non-fantasy adults. Good movie deserves to do well.

I agree with Vickie and Eric: Someone please tell me that music is in the movie. It is the ONLY reason I am interested in this movie. This shows you what a good trailer can do - the story itslef didn't seem to bring anything new to the table.

Btw, that music sounds quite similar to the one of the original LOTR interne trailer, the one no one can find.

Holadem:

The second piece of music featured in the trailer (the first one is some Moby song) is from E.S. Posthumus, the song title is "Nara". The album is only available online, the good news is that it's excellent (I just got it) Posted Image It also has the piece of music that plays during Spider-man's trailer for those interested. The song on the album plays quite longer then what was featured in the trailer and is thus far my favorite track - but not the only one, there is plenty to like here! I can confirm that it isn't in the film though.

Back on topic. I saw it today. Strong solid "actors" film, just what I was expecting and wanted. Thoroughly enjoyed it. The movie will definitely make me look for Diane Lane's other work - hadn't really noticed her before, bad me Posted Image

I thought it was okay, but nothing special. Gere almost ruined it for me. He was so under-written as a character.
I did enjoy watching Diane Lane, who gets better with age, but didn't really think we needed some of the more sexually explicit scenes (not that I minded them as they played out).

I've been a fan of Diane's since "A Little Romance" -- she's such an underrated actress. I highly recommend "A Walk on the Moon". (She got to work VERY closely with Viggo Mortensen, lucky girl! :b )

I thought this was awesome. It's certainly deserving all the rave reviews it's getting. I noticed quite a few of the reviews and articles are already saying Diane Lane could be Oscar Nominated for her astounding performance. Great movie, I'm gonna go again.

Diane Lane's performance was Oscar worthy.

I was not as taken with this well crafted movie as many.

But I was impressed with Lane's brave yet subtle performance.

Eric, you stole my thunder! After finding the Spider-Man trailer music, I tried a few different songs and recognized "Nara" immediately. After listening to a few other tracks, I realized that I MUST own this CD!

If you like movie music, you'll probably love this album!
