Sensual, Moody Thriller - Meg Ryan at her Best
Verified purchase
I read that Meg Ryan's career was derailed after making this film because fans were shocked by the frank sexuality. Well Boo Hoo. I think she was AMAZING. Jennifer Jason Leigh was AMAZING (she also wasn't rail thin which is a win for actresses). The chemistry between Meg Ryan and Mark Ruffalo was INTENSE - I'm not really into sex scenes but I though this movie did an amazing job of capturing the chemistry of this onscreen couple instead of just another boring portrayal of people humping. Great surprise ending as well. Those looking for a Hollywood style movie will not like this - it has a very gritty, indie, arthouse feel which I absolutely loved.

Couldn't finish
Verified purchase
I love Mark Ruffalo and Meg Ryan, but I couldn't finish this. I suppose it's partly my fault--I thought I was watching a crime movie and instead it was apparently an art film. An art film full of sex-obsessed people, long and odd silences, and people just disappearing from the narrative. I maybe made it forty minutes in, and finally gave up. Life's too short to watch a movie I can't enjoy.

Where do I start…..
Verified purchase
I just want to say that I really like Meg Ryan. I grew up on her movies and have seen most of them. For some reason though, I have never seen this movie or even recall seeing previews for it. I don’t even know where to start with my review 😆. The acting to me was all over the place. The chemistry with her and Mark Ruffalo was off and annoying, the way they acted so nonchalant with one another about everything got to me. One minute she’s like no, then it’s like she gets amnesia about the situation that is occurring. It was just really off to me and I didn’t care for the ending either. I love, love psychological thrillers but this is a hard pass from me.

Great Dark Thriller! R rated is a bit too sweet for the movie so use caution ..still truly enjoyed!

Wow! This is a great movie! It's raw , there are a couple of scenes a bit rough too watch ,it's rated R but it's a dark, ❤ R! So maybe sure you are old enough to handle. The Director manage to truly capture the real NYC! Not just the Glam version that's most of the time totally unrealistic, for the characters to live in the mind of apartments or places they eat,drink or play at. I can't believe I never heard of this movie before.

Excellent movie. I watched the R rated version a while ago, but bought this unrated directors cut. I felt the unrated version was better. More artistic. Different feel to the movie. Ryan and Ruffalo play way different characters than they usually play. I just loved Ruffalo's character. They are both excellent and believable. If you are offended by sex scenes or squeamish about murder victims you might like this movie. But people who appreciate works of art will like it. Also it was set in more realistic settings...small apartments, real looking streets, not some people in million dollar houses in subdivision. In a way the city is one of the main characters. I was impressed that the director and producer are women! I recommend you get this version of the movie.

A neglected gem from Jane Campion
Verified purchase
In the Cut may not be the greatest film ever made, but it definitely deserves a higher rating than it received at the time it was released. It is a very clever psychological thriller that it many ways remakes Klute from a feminist perspective. The performances from Meg Ryan and Mark Ruffalo are top-notch, and Jane Campion is of course a master director. The cinematography is especially brilliant. I would rate it as equal or even better than The Power of the Dog.

Awful & Confusing
Verified purchase
1st scene started off good then, it went downhill after that with confusing storyline. What is real and what is not real? Well, I didn't stick around to find out. Meg Ryan's character completely flawed and not interesting at all. Very depressing film. I lasted about 45 mins. and that was it. I used my Prime credits so good thing didn't pay for it.

Believe the one star reviews
Verified purchase
Mark Ruffalo's presence is the only good thing about the movie, but his police detective character is not likable. A shame because his police detective character in the Zodiac is very likable. If you're attracted to Mark Ruffalo, you'll get a glimpse of his penis. Actually none of the stars characters in this movie are likable and I found myself not caring what happened to them. The movie is slow and seems more about Meg Ryan getting laid than finding a serial killer.
