Single White Female is directed by Barbet Schroeder and adapted toscreenplay by Don Roos from the novel "SWF Seeks Same" written by JohnLutz. It stars Bridget Fonda, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Steven Weber, PeterFriedman and Stephen Tobolowsky. Music is by Howard Shore andcinematography by Luciano Tovoli.

When it's revealed that her partner Sam (Weber) has been cheating onher with his ex-wife, Allie Jones (Fonda) kicks him out of theapartment and advertises for a female roommate. She chooses HedraCarlson (Leigh), who on the surface seems to be the perfect roommate.Smoothly helping Allie through her crisis, a real friendship is formed,but it's not long before Hedra starts to exhibit some dark behaviourpatterns…..

The early 90s saw the "Woman from Hell" back in vogue in mainstreamcinema. After the success and publicity of Fatal Attraction (1987),there was a period where you feel that sensible film makers wiselychose to let that particular film disappear from the film lovers memorybanks. As it happens, they must have collectively chose 5 years as thecooling off period. For 1992 saw a wave of mad female on the loosepictures released. Led by the publicity gobbling Basic Instinct, filmssuch as The Hand That Rocks the Cradle and Single White Female put bumson cinema seats and reopened the "Mad Bitch" sub-genre. Of the three,Single White Female grossed the least, which is strange since it's abetter movie than the other two.

Schroeder's (Barfly/Reversal of Fortune) movie isn't a completesuccess, there's not enough development of the main characters andthere's some unintentionally funny moments. But when it's good it'sreal good. Reeling off a number of memorable and often chilling scenes,film is further boosted by the psychological smarts in Roos' (Boys onthe Side) screenplay. It helps that Schroeder has a knack for pacing,too, where he neatly simmers the plot until the spill over for the bigfinale. No disappointment there either, a good combination of genrestaples is enhanced in impact by some unexpected characterdevelopments, and there's moments of genuine suspense to lure theviewer to the edge of their seat.

It's also stylishly shot by Schroeder and Tovoli (Suspiria/Tenebrae).Allie's Upper West Side apartment is imposing and expansive, with highceilings, old time plumbing, a clunky lift and a dingy laundry in thebasement. It's a different set-up for such a thriller, no picket fenceharmony house or beach side residence, this is bustling New York, bigspaces, but as it turns out, that means no hiding place. The boysbehind the cameras get the maximum they can from the locale by blendingimposing and ominous with grainy veneer and filtered light. On theacting front, the girls put great effort into making their thinlydeveloped characters work, with Leigh doing a good line in progressiveinstability. While Friedman, Weber and a wonderfully naughtyTobolowsky, make the most of their secondary roles.

One or two obvious flaws aside, this still rounds out as a thoroughlyenjoyable thriller. 7.5/10

Formulaic, formulaic… yeah it's routine Hollywood psycho-thrillerterritory, but too visually well made by director Barbet Schroeder andcomfortably performed in the shape of Bridget Fonda and Jennifer JasonLeigh to not get something out of it. The story (adapted off JohnLutz's novel "SWF Seeks Same") plays its cards quite early, and goesabout the subject in a too convenient manner to make it entirelyeffective. Quite a slow build-up and many sub-plots stem off thecentral plot, as we watch Leigh's character's twitchy transformationsuddenly grow and form the basis of the early groundwork that wouldeventually unsettle Fonda's fragile character. A resourceful Schroedersure does a brilliant job with many artistic flourishes, and inspiredgimmick set-pieces where you just can't help but admire LucianoTovoli's lyrically smooth cinematography. However trying to registerthe suspense, became hard due to leading us down the same old path ofcheap clichéd jolts and shinny techniques. Although the potent climaxgoes over-board, it's particularly heart-pounding and downrightexciting. There's nothing overtly tame about it, with its seamlessnudity and tantalizing sex, and a wicked death here and there. But it'sall tastefully done. Howard Shore's sumptuously airy musical scorefeeds off the well used location and compact sets (especially that ofthe stark Victorian apartment building) that are very ideal to thefilm's progression. In the two leads, a gorgeous Fonda is terrific andLeigh's needly attachable turn is one of confidence. The chemistryworks, and when it comes to it they sure do look like each other. Talkabout eerie. There's also solid support by Steven Weber, Peter Friedmanand Stephen Tobolowsky.

Well Made, Sensual ThrillerReviewed bysddavis63Vote: 7/10

This was a very impressive movie that I had somehow missed over the years. It features a simple story line (which makes it very easy to enter into) in which Allison (Bridget Fonda), having broken up with her boyfriend (Sam Rawson) places an ad in the personals for a roommate, and ends up with Hedra (Jennifer Jason Leigh). Everything works well for a while and Hedra seems to be the perfect friend, until it becomes clear that she is becoming obsessed with Allison, an obsession that turns dangerous when Allison and her boyfriend reconcile, and the three of them end up living together.

Hedra was an interesting character. The point of her obsession wasn't clear to me, however. On the one hand she seemed to be using Allison to fill a void for a long lost sister; on the other hand there clearly was a sexual interest for Allison as well, brought out delicately but obviously by director Barbet Schroeder. There was never anything overtly physical between the two (except for one kiss, which needs to be seen in its context to be truly understood) but it's clear that Hedra is interested. Was she looking for a sister or a lover? We see examples of Hedra's bizarre sexual desires as Allison follows her to a sex club where (virtually disguised as Allison) Hedra enjoys - well, I'm not sure; could have been anything from the looks of it. This mistaken identity theme becomes the key to the movie as the story progresses.

It's at times violent, but even the violence isn't gratuitous. It's a very good movie. The only fault in my opinion is what I thought were somewhat mechanical performances from Fonda and Leigh. They were fine in their roles, but I really thought they lacked a bit of passion that could have made a very good movie even better.

Still, this movie is at least a 7/10.
