"adult melodrama"
« on: July 18, 2004, 09:07:50 PM »
you know what I'm talking about, the mature movies about webs of passion, revenge (usually in the form of immoral sex) and deceit between a bunch of grownups, usuall with comfortable jobs.  they don't have to be boring movies, take "In the Bedroom" for example.  but I find them boring for the most part.  They now usually come out in the summer, to counter dumb blockbusters apparently.
the theater I'm working at is playing Seducing Dr. Lewis, De-Lovely, and The Door in the Floor.  It's a total DaVinci Code crowd that comes in for these movies.  It's the the "Secret Lives of the Dentists" all over again.
What are some good/bad/blah recent "adult movies"?

Hardly recent, but Lantana is a great one.  None of the ones I'll name are probably recent.  Your Friends and Neighbors is another good one.  Any films that are really "blah" and tread this territory aren't really worth the mention because there are just so many.
