Kill Me Again ★★½ 1989 (R)

Director Dahl does the contemporary noir thing through the Nevada desert with Whalley as a beautiful femme fatale. She asks a detective (then husband Kilmer) to fake her death, which gets him targeted not only by the police, but also the mob and her psycho-boyfriend (Madsen). Fun and full of plot twists that will satisfy fans of the noir persuasion. 93m/C VHS, DVD . Val Kilmer, Joanne Whalley, Michael Madsen, Jon(athan) Gries, Bibi Besch; D: John Dahl; W: John Dahl, David Warfield; C: Jacques Steyn.
