You’ve never seen Bruce Willis, Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn quite like this. These grade A actors are handed golden dialogue and are playing vibrant characters. This could have been a dark horror film, but it has a peculiar humor and the kind of wit that makes you laugh every thirty seconds. That’s when you’re not downright fascinated by the unfolding mystery.
Death Becomes Her is a strange story about beauty, youth, and what happens when you lose both. It is a twisted tale of jealousy and revenge. It has some of the best practical effects and make-up Hollywood had come up with up to this point in time. The film has several defining characteristics, but its slapstick humor is what it is most remembered by. Gore was never so hilarious!
Robert Zemeckis’ cinematography is divine. All shots are calculated when it comes to lighting, camera movements, set design, blocking and effects coordination. The writers give us a fascinating script that was probably hard to put together but feels natural once executed nevertheless. Ultimately, every aspect of this film hits its target. Death Becomes Her is close to perfection.
