Maligned and misunderstood?
Or, a bizarre cross between David Hamilton softcore imagery and Flashdance choreography?
Lyne has made some seriously notable films - this, after the iconic Flashdance, has Rourke before the rot set in and Bassinger before the Oscar.........
It's slow and intense........and reeks of the 80s......the curiosity value is as a precursor to the fatal and indecent attractions and proposals.

Strangely, it's better now than it was then...............
