E4: Wow, Fatal Attraction is Problematic

For episode 4 we’re talking Fatal Attraction - a late 80’s psychological thriller directed by Adrian Lyne. This treat stars Glenn Close and Michael Douglas. Set against the backdrop of Manhattan, Fatal is one of the most erotic thrillers of its time up, there with Basic Instinct. We love this genre, but we’re going to break down what is so damaging and problematic with the film's narrative, as well as discuss how the original ending didn’t end up making the cut. Come along with Courtney and Nicole as we bunny boil the shit out of this!

Content warning: Deep discussion of suicide attempts, cutting, mental illness, domestic violence, kidnapping, and murder.
