FATAL ATTRACTION
1987, Paramount, 119 min, USA, Dir: Adrian Lyne

“I'm not gonna be ignored!” This crackling, tension-packed thriller is set into motion when a married attorney (Michael Douglas) has what he thinks is a one-night stand with a publishing executive (Glenn Close), who becomes the most vengeful “other woman” you’ve ever seen. Alternately sexy and scary, this box office smash benefits from a strong supporting performance by Anne Archer and an unforgettably nerve-jolting finale.


LIFEGUARD
1976, Paramount, 96 min, USA, Dir: Daniel Petrie

California lifeguard Rick Carlson (Sam Elliott) has managed to live life on his own terms, avoiding adult responsibility in favor of endless summers, peaceful winters and beautiful girls. But as his 15-year class reunion approaches, Rick is finally forced to ask himself what he really wants out of life and where he wants to go. Elliott’s restrained, beautiful star-making performance receives strong support from an exceptional cast that includes Anne Archer, Parker Stevenson and Kathleen Quinlan.


SHORT CUTS
1993, Warner Bros., 187 min, USA, Dir: Robert Altman

Working from short stories by Raymond Carver, director Robert Altman creates a funny, tragic and wholly original portrait of Southern Californians whose lives intersect in surprising ways. The cast is one of Altman's best: Matthew Modine, Julianne Moore, Buck Henry, Lily Tomlin, Tom Waits, Andie MacDowell, Jack Lemmon, Lili Taylor and Robert Downey Jr. are just a few of the stars in this masterpiece.
