Fatalities

October 11, 1987

Alex is a picture of an obsessed, manipulative, explosive, violent and psychotic woman filled with anger and disgust. Webber and Alexander see her as "a picture of a woman deeply in love"???

I find it difficult to understand how someone (Alexander) who is licensed to provide services to the emotionally/mentally ill could come up with such an absurd interpretation of the role of Alex, particularly in a movie where it is clear from the start what her role is intended to be.

Maybe Alexander would be better suited for an acting career, playing roles such as Alex, for whom she feels so deeply. "Play Misty for Me" may soon be due for a remake!
