Wild Things

release year: 1998
genre: weird drama
viewing setting: home DVD, 9/11/98
what I expected: no idea
what I got: something that kinda grabbed me and made me watch it

synopsis: Various people are involved in a rape accusation, trial, and aftermath - but nothing is as it seems.

impressions: This movie was confusing for the first half, and very darkly humorous for the second half. Every time you thought you knew what was going on, something would happen to let you know that you really had no idea. It had many good plot twists. And it had Denise Richards (perhaps better known as the stupid bitch pilot from Starship Troopers) naked...and kissing Neve Campbell. Yowza!

acting: Pretty good - they all did well.

final word: Worth seeing, for the keeps-you-guessing effect if nothing else.

rating: C
