  • As an acting symposium, this is 83 minutes of Tucci exercises; never a bad thing. The wooden Eve does her best, but director/writer Neil LaBute unfortunately underwrote her character — by design, it would seem, given all that transpires. show more

  • Like most of LaBute's work, Some Velvet Morning ends as it begins, more clever than wise. show more

  • Some Velvet Morning is a horror film with no blood, with words the only weapon for 98% of the picture. show more

    interesting push and pull. classic instances, where the male uses logic, forward thinking, backward recall, and mix of feelings to try to catching up. the reserved side of female, make it mostly defensive, yet more often explosive of emotion and physical response make the traits of the female visible. The hidden context, unfolds a "pyschological chaos" make it a good mixing factor, or just simply cheap shot for mixing dimensions of guilt, shame, and potential abnormality of affair. The predictability of what happen next, with many counts of "departure" from the scene was used to create the tension for the viewer to keep guessing "for staying" with the movie. and the last exploitation was the beauty of the actors that sex was probably predicted. (pretty bad on that). but overall was worth a watch due to analysis.
