Re: "Adulterers" movie on Netflix

Looks like a cheating wife cliché.

Like raw emotions but don't know if this is intelligent enough to put up with.

I hate bvll**** happy crap results from truly devastating behavior.

Well this movie does not have a happy ending, and...well...let's say the BH had a very decisive way of dealing with his WW and her boyfriend.

It was overly dramatic and drug-out. No people would actually talk to each other the way the characters do in this film.

The acting wasn't bad. I would say the emotions were well played, but the script was overwrought.

It just left a bad taste in my mouth.

So who got shot?

Virginia: "Why can't you kids leave well enough alone? Everything was fine until you started digging around."

Burt: "You sound like a Scooby Doo villain."

Yeah. I'm skimming it.

So was she really just whoring herself or was she telling the truth about the loan from her f buddy?

It is very monotonous and hard to get through without the fast forward tab.

Kwestshun....... If the guy knew she was married, who would you off?

If he wasn't aware she was M, who would you off?

Yeah it was hard to understand. From what I could tell she lost some money or was trying to get a loan. I think her OM was helping her out with money issues and they ended up in an affair.

But I'm thinking all of this was happening inside the husband's head. He was rationalizing what was happening. It was a Jacobs Ladder mind trip.

If I went into a guy's home and I felt the presence of another woman, I would certainly ask --again-- what is his relationship status. I guess they can lie and say "separated." But I wouldn't hang around until I got better info on the matter.

Re: "Adulterers" movie on Netflix

Skipped around but finished it.

WOW! Dark fun really!

They covered many erotic clichés and revenge/punishment concepts.

I loved the premise and concept as well as the good execution and acting.

I didn't like the mind tripping crap or instability.

Fun for a dark exploration fantasy.

Not satisfying as a real life scenario.

Re: "Adulterers" movie on Netflix

As pop told me as a teen -I best not be the deciding member on the jury- in this case it was

the 1984 killing of the guy who molested his son, as the molester was led to courthouse (Gary Plauche, d. 2014).

Same goes for a H or W catching their spouse in bed with someone else.... crime of passion?

No way 1st degree, very unlikely 2nd degree. Voluntary manslaughter / 3rd degree most likely.

I never knew if my XW cheated, didn't matter. Just the fact she walked out on the M was enough.

But had I walked in and saw.... I honestly do not know what I would do. Guys are well known

about lying about being M..... females will most of the time, tell you she is M.

I'd like to think if the guy didn't know, I would not pop a cap in his arse.

Like pop always told me.... the two ways to get your arse killed quick over, is money (drugs) and vagina.

Re: "Adulterers" movie on Netflix

I saw this movie last year.......twice. Call me stupid but I've seen just about every movie dealing with adultery. They each bring out a different aspect of infidelity. The aspect this film brings to the forefront is consequences. It's a little over the top, but considering the unrealistic reactions in most Hollywood depictions, I guess they swung the pendulum the other way. By the way, the film begins stating it's based on a true story.
