->''"Anyone check you for a heartbeat recently?"''
-->-- '''Frank Griffith'''

A 1994 Neo-Noir film directed by John Dahl, ''The Last Seduction'' starred Linda Fiorentino and Peter Berg. Its perhaps best known for being disqualified from Oscar consideration that year due to it showing on {{HBO}} just before premiering in theaters.

Bridget Gregory is the bored wife of Clay, a drug dealer. One day, she swipes a bag of money from him and skips town to Chicago. On her way there, she meets Mike, a divorced man who immediately falls for her. When Clay sends goons to track down his wife and stolen cash, Bridget decides to use Mike in an elaborate scheme to get her past off her back.
