Teen Movie Critic
To Die For
Gus Van Sant's first film since his critically panned Even Cowgirls Get The Blues, this very funny black comedy follows the life of an amateur newscaster (wickedly portrayed by Nicole Kidman), who'll do anything to get to the top. However, she feels her husband (Matt Dillon) is getting in the way of her rise to stardom, so she decides to have her teenage lover (Joaquin Phoenix, River's brother) kill her husband.
A scathing look at the media and the stuff that attracts people to it. Kidman is sensational as the cold-blooded newscaster and Phoenix is hilariously dumb as the young killer. The film tends to lag near the very end, but other than that, it's a pretty good movie. Let's hope Van Sant can keep it up.
