    Adrian Lyne should be busier making more movies. Loved this!
    Patience, patience people! So many haters wanting quick fixes out of the gate. Life just isn't like that, something Adrian Lyne knows only too well. I was eager to see what Lyne had up his sleeve after a long hiatus from directing and the initial reviews were bad, I mean really bad. But, in my lowly opinion, he's alway been a hit-maker with his own brand of photogenic relationship drama focusing on the darker aspects; jealously, lust, dominance, submission - sometimes murder. So, I sat down expecting a dud and what I got was something else. I got a movie that we don't see these days, people being people. No CGI, not explosions, no political preaching, just a delicious slow burner about flawed folks who, as far as we're concerned are not conventional but entirely possible. Hell, we have a million genders these days, why should infatuation be a crime? What makes this an effective little thriller? We have no choice but to feel rage, explosive rage because we the audience become infatuated with his wife with her impossible good looks, her brazen charm, and timely warmth when all seems lost, her sexual energy, all of which had ME clenching my fist when she'd arrive with a new man. The awkwards moments where Affleck suffers the indignity of hosting his wife's boyfriends, watching her flirt and kiss them, and knowing he's dying inside made this an achingly uncomfortable watch at times which of course is the point. Meanwhile, after the mysterious death of a party guest (you guessed it, one of the wife's boyfriend's), we begin to wonder if Affleck is intent on murder afterall - and so does a local novelist. If you've ever had a toxic relationship or been so in love with a devil, you'll get this. If you're looking for Fatal Attraction 2, forget it. Or, if you can accept the unconventional, definetly give this a go. You're in the hands of a master film-maker who still has it!!

    some things never change
    And Adrian Lyne after 20 years from his last film, appeared with this title, totally unchanged. Love triangles and 'deep waters' as a metaphor for complicated relationships, for the eternal question of love, hate, power, admiration, worshiping, loosing and everything else that left us unrecognizable of ourself.

    How is easy to get lost when it comes about love and passion. Like Bergman wrote long ago "Modern man is just your imagination", Lyne approves that maybe we changed a little, but our deep waters still run the same.

    Beautiful frames, stairways, casual city scape, and kitchen of course, big and white, are here again... Also, sensuality of woman and men under pressure - like in all of his movies.
