Worth watching again and again.

I first saw this movie on cable, (HBO) and liked it instantly. The plot and characters were well written I thought and fine acting jobs by all. I was in high school when it came out and really liked the scuba scenes so I bought the movie on video. Since then I have watched it many times and have become a bigger fan. The biggest thing is how well I could identify with the characters. It draws you into watching just to see what's going to happen. I think if you like "Chinatown", you'll like this movie too. I think the ending works too, could be better but works well here. Best performance of Debra Winger except "An Officer and a Gentleman" And truly Thersa Russell's best performance I've ever seen her in. A good movie to watch when you're in the mood to stay home and watch a good well rounded, interesting movie. I still never tire of seeing it again.

Compelling Mystery that's not to be missed.

This is one of my all time favorites and that's not said lightly, there are not a lot of movies I can see over and over. This is one. From beginning to end, Black Widow, is an unforgettable psychological thriller.

Deborah Winger and Teresa Russell star in this. Winger plays an FBI agent obsessed with with Russell's character who she suspects, marries and then murders her husbands. Winger must prove it....

SPOILERS:

This is an excellent excellent movie, well acted, beautiful scenery, intriguing story, but MOST FASCINATING was the relationship between winger and Russell's characters. To me, even if all the other positives had been lacking in this film, that one thing would be enough to make the movie a must see. Russell and Winger are fantastic in these roles to the point that I could not imagine either role being played by anyone else and both women illustrate beautifully the cat and mouse game these women play with each other.

The ending(although widely criticized here and somewhat unrealistic)) appealed to me tremendously. Obviously, it wasn't long enough and kind of baffling in certain ways, I'll admit but So what? I think this movie does the psychological thriller better then many more well known pictures and certainly is among the best with imagery, unforgettable characters, and the building of tension. This is the type of movie to just get lost in. It's very much under rated.

This is a must see for anyone who loves psychological thrillers and the fact that so much of the movie takes place against an island paradise only succeeds even more in setting the mood of the picture. (you will want to go on vacation when the movie's over). To sum up: the intriguing plot, the lazy, unhurried but extremely tension building way the movie builds, the fascinating battle of wits between Winger and Russell and the beautiful scenery are a wonderful combination and make Black Widow an easy 10 of 10.

Hugely entertaining (feminist?) film

Debra Winger is great as always as the FBI backroom researcher allowed out for a change to pursue her theory that the widows of several millionaires who have all died of the same rare disease are in fact the same woman.

She finds herself fascinated as well as repelled by Theresa Russell's glamour, lifestyle and ability to use men for her own ends. Russell in her turn sees her as a worthy opponent (unlike all those men she takes in so easily).

In fact all the men are just part of the background to the play between Winger and Russell.

Its a terrific film all round and I may be alone in this, but I think the ending works.
