(( Anna Wentworth/Arts Reviewer: "To Die For" is a clever movie, told in pseudo-documentary style about a shallow young woman with one obsession, to be on TV. (("TO DIE FOR"/COLUMBIA PICTURES: SO WHAT I AM SAYING IS THAT A QUALIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON CAN JUST SNIP AWAY THOSE LITTLE BEAUTY SPOTS FACIAL BLEMISHES--WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL THEM--AND YOU'D SEE HOW MUCH BETTER YOU'D FEEL ABOUT YOURSELF.))
This is a showcase for Nicole Kidman who is Suzanne Stone, the epitome of 'blonde ambition'.
She works her way up by marrying a sweet but conventional Italian restaurateur--Matt Dillon--then railroads a pair of cable T.V. guys into hiring her for their local weather spot.
In her single minded ambitious drive to the top, her sweet hubby becomes a liability , so Suzanne seduces a dim teenager and convinces him to kill the husband.
One of the movie's strengths is the supporting cast, but Kidman's character is just too irritatingly dense. ((I BELIEVE MR. GORBACHEV-YOU KNOW, THE MAN WHO RAN RUSSIA FOR SO LONG-I BELIEVE THAT HE'D STILL BE IN POWER TODAY IF HE'D DONE WHAT SO MANY PEOPLE SUGGESTED AND HAD THAT BIG PURPLE THING TAKEN OFF HIS FOREHEAD.))
Even with its bits of black humor and cynical irony, "To Die For" only gets a "B".
The movie has slow points in the beginning and is entirely twisted to warrant more.))
