Product Details


Product Description

Money. Sex. Power. They're all part of this crisp, stylish suspense thriller from the director of The French Connection and the screenwriter of Basic Instinct. DAVID CARUSO (Kiss of Death) plays Corelli, a D.A. up to his neck in a case that may lead where he doesn't want to go. CHAZZ PALMINTERI (The Usual Suspects) portrays Matt, a prominent attorney, local power broker and Corelli's longtime pal. LINDA FIORENTINO (The Last Seduction) is Matt's wife Trina: a clinical psychologist who's bold, uninhibited and capable of anything - maybe even murder. With gripping suspense, fiery performances and one of the most spectacular car chases ever filmed, Jade is "a powerful movie without equal this year" (Doug Moore, FOX-TV).

4.0 out of 5 stars Jade is an seducing film by Linda Fiorentino Oct. 6 2002
Format:DVD
Basic Instinct screenwriter Joe Esterhas' wicked knowledge of the trangsgressions of the rich and the powerful are deftly exposed by director William Friedkin and Linda Fiorentino. She is perfectly cast as the psychologist and as the illicit liason Jade. Chazz Palminteri, her husband, and David Caruso, a tad young for the role, makes for an interesting storyline. The graphic sexuality exhibited is for adults only but the movie delivers the seedy underbelly of politics and power and illustrates how a woman scorned can enter into a circle from which she has no escape. Unlike the Last Seduction, Fiorentino is the victim and not the temptress yearning for the love she doesn't have. Unfortunately, her husband isn't it either. With Loreena McKennitt's soulful sounds and Linda's great performance, she eventually gets under your skin as a woman looking for love in all the wrong places. Maybe that was the moral rather than Joe Esterhas's preoccupation with all the women he couldn't have in high school (as one critic wrote). Deftly directed, superbly acted, and well-executed. Jade is worth a watch only because of Linda Fiorentino's emotional resonance and convincing performance. Chazz is as excellent as ever. -Felecia Constance Rowe

1.0 out of 5 stars Not A Genuine Jade March 26 2001
Format:DVD
This is quite possibly one of the worst suspense movies I've ever seen. I pity Linda Fiorentino for volunteering as the lead actress in this patchy thriller. She definitely had the sex appeal but the material was unworthy of her. However, it can be expected that David Caruso would appear in such a critical catastrophe. After the bum results of the box-office gross for "Kiss Of Death" aside Nicholas Cage, it was a fatal omen that the red-headed 40-something would retreat into the shadows, never to be seen in film or television for a crudely extended period of time. As for Chazz Palminteri, I am horrifically surprised to see a great dramatic actor appear in such smut. After the likes of "A Bronx Tale", I would think Chazz would have more respect for himself. Maybe he wasn't getting enough work and overestimated the potential success of this movie. Everyone else certainly did.
The shaky premise is this: the movie begins with the murder of a wealthy San Franciscan who haggles with historians over priceless artifacts. He is killed in his own home with an Egyptian axe, one of the many pieces he collects. His assassin dawns a creepy tribal fertility mask while hacking him to pieces, and discards it among the bloody panorama, the only clue left for the police who arrive hours later at the scene. We are then introduced to detective David Corelli (Caruso), an experienced policeman in homicide and a dogged pursuer of justice. Cut to a luxurious black and white ball with the seemingly loving couple Matt and Trina Gavin (Palminteri and Fiorentino) waltzing the evening away. Detective Corelli then crashes their joyous soiree by delivering bad news to the Gavins: one of Trina's more recent acquaintances has been murdered.

Format:VHS Tape
This film first intrigued me because I'm always interested in thrillers like "Rising Sun" or "Sliver", mostly because I really love those solemn-turn-to-explosive kind of films. I always seem to find a good amount of adreneline in these movies, even where most people only see uneventful and boring elements. In fact those scenes, which can be seen with amazing clarity in "Jade", have a subtle emotional intensity that brings out a sense of sophistication, and fulfills a lot of reality within these situations. It's wonderful how strong this film was in all departments: plot, performance, action, emotion, atmosphere, and ability to make a strong mark in the thriller genre. You will also enjoy Caruso's performance, as he does that kind of character well, but you won't be able to forget Linda Fiorentino's and Palminteri's great performances. It has it's share of good ol' American film noir intrigue: infidelity, paranoia, political corruption, and a few car chases, but all of those things are accomplished extremely well in this film, setting a standard for those elements, I'm sure. And if you could make a big deal about "Ronin"'s car chases, then this cool caper will give you a coronary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mystery and suspense at its best June 30 1999
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Some fantasies go too far. Money, sex and power are the things that most corrupt Los Angeles citizens in the modern world and in the classy thriller "Jade", penned by "Basic Instinct" screenwriter Joe Eszterhas and directed by "The Exorcist" director William Friedkin. This is a film I will definitely run out and buy on DVD now that I just got a DVD player. The film, despite many peoples' horrible opinions, is mystery and suspense at its best, delievring powerful dialogue, a chilling and provocative musical score, and unique directing and editing. Not to mention the terrific car chase scene that took the cast and crew three weeks to shoot in the cooperative Chinatown in California. Car chase scenes have become a trifle trite, however it remains tastefully done and riveting in this also riveting film. "Jade" shows that there is a dark side to people of high and low levels of power, and that they will commit heinous and destructive acts to remain in the chair of power, and as clinical psychologist Katrina Gavin (the wonderful and talented Linda Fiorentino) says, "The people who commit these acts are in many ways no different from you and me. But they are no longer able to control their urges. They disassociate themselves from their own actions, often experiencing an hysterical blindness. They are blind to the darkness within themselves."
