Probably one of the most emotionally disturbing movies ever made. If you're looking for a fun 80s romantic comedy, this is not it. It's more of a psychological thriller about a borderline psychopath who takes interest in a divorced woman. Mickey Rourke is extremely scary and charming as a wallstreet power man, his intesity is off the charts. Kim Basinger gives what I feel is her best performance as a really wounded person in need of someone to love her and take care of her. The story works extremely well in the given setting and time period, analyzing the decade's stereotypes and the roles of men and women. You can't find a more moody visual style, which was one of the most expressive parts of the movie. It's really one of the most unique movies ever made, i've never seen anything like it.

A predictable romance drama, I don't know why people used to talk about it so much, it's not that good. It's not even very romantic.
