Just saw 'Deception'

"Deception" with Hugh Jackman, Ewan McGregor and the ssssmokin' Michelle Williams is a smart, sinister and very sexy suspense flick.

My wife and I went to the multiplex without any particular film in mind and picked "Deception" based on the exciting commercials we'd both seen. There were other good choices -- including the comedy "Leatherheads" and Ben Stein's "Expelled" -- but we figured, based on the commercials, that "Deception" would be a good thriller, and we weren't disappointed.

It's not a spoiler to say that there's plenty enough sex and skin to deserve the R rating. "Deception" is the kind of Hitchcock-influenced story that, 15 years ago, would have featured Michael Douglas in one of the roles. It's also a great-looking film. Director Marcel Lagenegger and cinematographer Dante Spinotti are fond of close-focused, natural-lit scenes in which you can see every pore on the actors' skin.

Amazingly enough, even Michelle Williams has pores. But she's still sssssmokin' -- I particularly remember one scene near the end where she gets out of a car and walks up steps in a tight, clingy black dress. Niiiiice. A very good-looking woman in a very good-looking movie.

So, yeah, suspenseful story with lots of sex and plot twists, excellent cinematogaphy, and one ssssmokin' hot leading lady. It was definitely worth the $9.
