Passion, greed and revenge forge a desperate triangle between Bridget Gregory (Linda Fiorentino), who wants it all; husband Clay (Bill Pullman), a doctor forced to deal drugs to pay off their debt to a violent loan shark; and Mike (Peter Berg), drawn into a steamy affair with Bridget.

MALICE
1993, Warner Bros., 107 min, Canada/USA, Dir: Harold Becker

A love triangle is fueled by an insurance scam in this contemporary thriller set in a New England college town. Associate dean Andy Safian (Bill Pullman) and wife Tracy (Nicole Kidman) could use some extra money to renovate their new home; when hot-shot surgeon Jed Hill (Alec Baldwin) arrives looking for a room to rent, it seems like the perfect solution. But when Tracy needs emergency surgery, it results in a malpractice suit against Hill - who may not be what he seems. The outstanding cast includes Anne Bancroft, George C. Scott, Bebe Neuwirth and Gwyneth Paltrow.


LOST HIGHWAY
1997, Focus Features, 135 min, France, USA, Dir: David Lynch

Did jazzman Fred Madison (Bill Pullman) murder his wife? Drawing on many of noir’s most familiar themes - the crumbling of a guilty psyche, the distrust between men and women, the erotic allure of the dark side - LOST HIGHWAY brazenly deconstructs a noir narrative and reconfigures it all as balls-to-the-wall cinematic poetry. With Patricia Arquette, Balthazar Getty.
