A Perfect Murder

DOWN & DIRTY:
Suspense/Thriller: A wealthy businessman forces his wife's lover to murder her, but then has to cover himself when his plan falls apart.

NITTY GRITTY:
Steven Taylor (MICHAEL DOUGLAS) is a wealthy and powerful businessman married to Emily (GWYNETH PALTROW), a translator and aide to the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.

Their marriage is not working, and Emily has been having an affair with David Shaw (VIGGO MORTENSEN), a struggling artist.

Steven knows of the affair and forces David into agreeing to murder Emily, offering to pay him half a million dollars. It turns out David has a prior criminal record and Steven has information that would send him to prison for a long time.

David reluctantly agrees and follows Steven's elaborate, and seemingly foolproof plan.

The killer sneaks into the apartment while Steven is away playing poker with his buddies. Emily is in the bathtub and hears a noise in the kitchen. She investigates and discovers the killer who tries to bludgeon her with a fry pan. They struggle and Emily grabs a conveniently placed meat thermometer and rams it into the killer's neck. End of killer.

Steven listens to the attack over his cellular phone and goes home thinking Emily is dead. He enters the apartment and finds Emily injured and the killer dead. He searches the killer and removes a key and puts it back on Emily's key ring.

The police show up and detective Mohamed Karaman (DAVID SUCHET) begins his investigation. While questioning Steven in the kitchen about the murder, Karaman removes the ski mask covering the killer's face. Steven looks.....it's NOT David.

David is very much alive. He got one of his old prison buddies to be the killer. Now he wants the rest of the money from Steven.

Steven gives David the money, then follows him unto a train and kills him.

THE ENDING:
Emily confronts Steven about the missing house key (The key Steven put back on her key ring was NOT her house key). She also has a tape recording David made of Steven describing the murder plan. They struggle and Steven tries to kill her but Emily shoots and kills him.

WHAT EVERYONE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT:
That Michael Douglas is soooooo much better as a BAD GUY (Remember Gordon Gecko in'Wall Street'?).
