Femme Fatale ★★★½

The title really applies to the movie that you think this is for the majority of its running time—a noirish riff on the erotic thriller genre. What Femme Fatale reveals itself to be is a stranger beast—a fantasy, almost a kind of Shakespearean romance. It’s all pretty consonant with a specific type of adolescent yearning that I relate to, but don't recommend. This movie does some stuff.
