Part of Film series Screen Epiphanies
Directed by Brian De Palma | 2002

With Rebecca Romijn, Antonio Banderas, Peter Coyote

In this new monthly series, a prominent artistic or cultural figure talks about the film that inspired their passion for cinema, followed by a screening of the film.

Model-turned-actress Rebecca Romijn stars in the titular role of Brian De Palma’s erotic modern noir, ostensibly about a jewelry theft, before unraveling into a more enigmatic and probing thriller that entirely upends the conceits of the mistaken-identity suspense film. “Sly as a snake, Femme Fatale is a sexy thriller that coils back on itself in seductive deception. This is pure filmmaking, elegant and slippery. I haven't had as much fun second-guessing a movie since Mulholland Drive” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.)

Inspired by the Screen Epiphanies series at London's BFI Southbank

Before the film, K. Austin Collins will discuss how Femme Fatale inspired his love of cinema.
