You know how you find an item at a restaurant, order it, and it's one of the tastiest little numbers you've stuffed down your throat in years! Some time passes and you return, order the same thing and it induces Olympic power vomiting. This is the problem I have with CLOSER, good back in the day but totally lacking in protein after the fact. When a young Natalie Portman can steal the show from Jude Law, Julia Roberts and Clive Owen you just know something is wrong. Grant it, she is an acting powerhouse but like 'em or hate 'em this cast of A-listers make for some pretty stiff competition and Portman knocks them down like pins in a bowling alley. For my money the film is worth watching just to hear Owens call Robers a "fucking slag" and he does have some golden moments here but when you get right down to it CLOSER is nothing but a DANGEROUS LIAISONS for Generation X, or Y or whatever the hell it's called right now, only DL had better costumes.

Every time I watch this movie I am mystified at the power struggle and the shift of that power between the characters. It`s fascinating. I love the theme song too!
