1- Derailed (2005)
Derailed is the story of a man leading a quiet life with a good job and a loving wife, taking care of his seriously ill daughter as best he can.
Until one day, by chance, he meets a woman on the train he takes every day.
Strongly attracted to the sexy stranger, they decide to have a relationship and go to a hotel to make love.
But while they are in intimacy, a thief breaks into the room, robs them, and abuses the girl.
It will be only the beginning of a series of blackmail and bullying by the criminal for the lovers’ couple.
The man is desperate and, wanting to get out, asks for help from a young hooligan friend.
But he finds out the truth about the girl, not so innocent as than she initially seemed.
Derailed is a family drama that intriguingly combines romance with the crime genre.
The movie has some good twists capable of reviving the rhythm when the tension seems to drop.
Lies and desire in a dirty sexy scheme
Definitely, its greatest strength lies in the actors around which the story unfolds.
Clive Owen is an excellent protagonist who transforms himself from a moderate ordinary person into a desperate with no way out willing to do anything.
The man begins a relationship intrigued by the idea of adventure and escaping from his daily family worries.
Jennifer Aniston strays a lot from Friends‘ famous character, where she was a cheerful, optimistic, and goofy party lover.
In this role, she is more sexy, mature, and mean than ever in the various romance comedies she had already played for cinema.
Her gaze hides a sadness that will remain without explanation, and the actress finally becomes a fascinating and mysterious woman from the already beautiful girl she was before.
Talking about Vincent Cassel is almost useless, being an extraordinary actor in any role he plays.
Indeed, he has perfect charisma as the story’s villain, looking for the money by any means at his disposal.
Devilish and ruthless, he’s perversely fun to admire with his compassionless grin, helped by his equally wicked accomplice played by the famous rapper Xzibit.
Mikael Håfström directs a good drama capable of touching the right points of the great rainbow of feelings.
All characters are fascinating and never banal in a story with high tension within a series of seemingly everyday situations.
Derailed It’s a movie that divided opinion between criticism and appreciation, despite having good commercial results.
Until now, unfortunately, it remained the only dramatic role so far for sexy mean girl Jennifer Aniston.
I recommend it to the actress’ fans, but not only, like a movie to better know another unexplored side of her personality.

She is perfect as an uninhibited artist and an intelligent, elegant, and dangerous woman.

Michael Douglas is the axis of their discord in the role of one of the most envied men of the 90s.
The actor loads the plot on his shoulders for excellent performance, notably making his character strong and sympathetic.
He plays a man who thinks he’s smart but he’s always deceived continuously by these two women.
Crushed in their mind power game, in which no one wants to lose, he doesn’t know who to trust until the end.
Paul Verhoeven enriches his already excellent filmography with this unforgettable thriller.
Basic Instinct remains at the moment his most amazing success at the box office, surpassing the revenues of his other big blockbusters such as Robocop and Total Recall.
This movie immediately exploded into pop culture, becoming a cult phenomenon and finally launching Sharon Stone’s career.

John McNaughton directs one of the best-known and most successful movies of his career as a director and screenwriter.
The author of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer It’s very skillful in giving the common teenager face to a story much layered and deeper than it looks.
Wild Things came out at the end of 2000 and so the younger ones might not know it, but it was for a short time another generational movie.
After falling into the oblivion of the forgotten cult, we can conclude by saying that it is finally time to rediscover it and admire its biting actuality.
