I wonder if Clifford 43, from Oz, may have missed the point. (by stanistreet)
This is a psychological thriller, which neatly plots a few days in the life of an technical executive in a computer company and his interaction with his colleagues, all as ambitious as he is himself. The film improves on Michael Crichton's novel by showing us how manipulative modern management is, when the bottom line is a big bonus to the bosses. Donald Sutherland, is excellent as the Boss who wants an important merger to work. And he thinks he has the person to make it do just that - the Demi Moore character, equallly excellent in a difficult role. Michael Douglas excellent too finds <more>
himself sidelined,being unaware of the bigger issues at stake. The plot becomes complicated by his being sexually harassed by Demi Moore's character - an issue which upset The Feminist Sisterhood - and possibly lost the film support from female viewers? But the plots and counter plots are clever. The end is not signalled in any obvious way and the use of the advanced computer system is absolutely central to the development of the story. The plot could be used as a blueprint for any story about corruption; backstabbing; corporate malpractice & legal manipulation. Cast your mind back to the Arbitration sessions - watch the by-play of the two attorneys. This is powerful cinema. I give it 9.5.
Oh my god that office scene was so hot. Demi in her wonder bra. Just a pity that Douglas didn't rip it off. When he's sitting on the chair and she's doing him I just wished i was him. Then he gets to rip her panties off. How he didn't do any more is hard to believe. Demi just looks unbelievable in that scene. Douglas gets to wrap his hands around her ass for a while as she begins to undress. The only problem is the fact that it is too hard to believe that Douglas would go home after going that far. When he rips her top off and asks her if she wants to do it, it looks like <more>
it's gonna happen. They passionately kiss and then he starts kissing her legs. Oh god thats a good film.
Tamer than "Fatal Attraction", the results are still great! (by GOWBTW)
Michael Douglas has always been his best when he did "Fatal Attraction". In the movie "Disclosure" the situation is almost similar, except when the subject is sexual harassment. Usually, the women are the harassees, not here. Douglas is the harassed. I can live with this myself. Demi Moore plays the sexually aggressive Meredith Johnson who indeed shows her side HANDS DOWN! When Tom Sanders Michael Douglas agrees to work with his boss Moore late at night, she really gets the term "going below the belt" in which she does, he gets frightened easily. When things <more>
were about to go downhill for Sanders, everyone he works for comes to his aid. Knowing Johnson is a liar and manipulator, she admits her aggressiveness and she really gives herself a bad name to the company and herself. To me that's no surprise. All the support Tom had really comes from a person named A. Friend, which I'm not revealing here. The virtual reality scene makes this movie more interesting to watch as well. This movie got a lot to give and it's worth every minute. I've enjoyed it, you should too. Rating 5 stars.
Intellectual thriller about sex used as a tool for power. (by Banshee57)
Michael Doulgas and Demi Moore head this fine piece of work based on Michael Crichtons' novel. Douglas is Tom Sanders, a typical business man working with a fairly normal company. He is dark horse in the running for promotion, until Meredith Johnson Moore arrives. Meredith is an old fling, and she hasn't forgotten the past. When a desperate attempt to open old wounds, or relive steamy times goes awry, Meredith is sickened by Toms' monogamy, and wants revenge! Director Barry Levinson creates a brilliant conflict, which seems to grow heavy with each scene. The entire cast is <more>
phenomenal. Moore and Douglas are perfect in their roles, but the main attraction for my eyes, was the quick, smart, catchy performance of Catherine Alvarez by Roma Maffia. Film keeps a strong interest for the whole time, only lacking in some possible slow moments. Part of why the film works so well is the fact that Levinson keeps it intellectual, dealing with adults, and the way they handle these situations. Sex is not a crutch to use for the main stars, who, at the time, were rather big. Instead, sex is portrayed as the key power in the situation. Catherine Alvarez states in the film "Sexual harassment is not about sex, it's about power. She has it, you don't". Pretty catchy way to portray sexual harassment. Technology is later brought in as a power to...but why should I say anything more? See the film for yourself.
Excellent film that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat and blow you away (by Catherine_Grace_Zeh)
Even though I haven't read the book, if you ask me, DISCLOSURE is an excellent film that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat and blow you away. Meredith Demi Moore kind of gave me the creeps. You'll understand why once you've read the book and seen this movie. However, I loved the way that Catherine Roma Maffia worked with Tom Michael Douglas . In my opinion, the performances were top grade, the direction was superior, the costumes were perfectly designed, and the cast was perfectly chosen. Also, the soundtrack is really good, too. Before I wrap this up, I must warn <more>
you that this movie has some heavy sexual content if you're going to see it, so viewer discretion is strongly advised. Now, in conclusion, if you enjoyed Michael Crichton's title novel or like Barry Levinson films, I highly recommend this movie. It's sure to keep you guessing from start to finish.
Disclosure is a thriller directed by Barry Levinson that stars Michael Douglas and Demi Moore. It is based on Michael Crichton's novel of the same title.The cast also includes Donald Sutherland, Rosemary Forsyth and Dennis Miller.The film is a combination mystery and thriller about office politics and intrigue in the computer industry in the mid-1990s. Also,it includes the issue of sexual harassment.Tom Sanders is an executive at DigiCom, a leading computer software firm. The company is about to launch a new virtual reality-based data storage system that is expected to revolutionize the <more>
industry, and Bob Garvin, the owner of the company, is in the midst of negotiating a merger that could bring $100 million into the firm. However, while Tom is expecting a promotion, he discovers the position has been given instead to a new hire, Meredith Johnson, with whom Tom had an affair years ago, before he was married. After her first day of work, Meredith invites Tom up to her office and makes a concerted attempt to seduce him; while Tom doesn't fight off her advances with very much gusto at first, eventually he decides things have gone too far and leaves in a huff. The next morning, Meredith accuses Tom of sexual harassment, and he realizes this was merely a power ploy to get him out of DigiCom for good; Tom, determined to fight, files a counter-suit, which makes him no friends at the company, since rocking the boat too hard could very well scotch the merger.The story takes some clever twists and turns as it develops into a full- fledged psychological thriller that is effective and gripping, if occasionally contrived as a result of over-plotting.The film is genuinely gripping and well-written.As for the performances,Moore makes an awesome femme fatale while Douglas triumps over evil in a big way.But it is a watchable film as well.
This was satisfying to watch, just to see justice done to an evil character played well by Demi Moore . It's also refreshing - and astonishing - to see the flip side of the coin: a man accusing a woman of sexual harassment and proving it! What a unique twist, almost unheard of in the Liberal world of mainstream films.Michael Douglas co-stars with Moore and is good, too, but I found Douglas' lawyer "Catherine Alvarez" played by Roma Maffia, to be the most interesting of them all and making the most profound statements in this tale of "power" not sex .Donald <more>
Sutherland gives another convincing performance as a "bad guy" as well. That's a role he seems best suited to play. All the actors are good on this adaption from a Michael Crichton book.The radical feminists didn't like this movie, so you know the the film has something going for it besides good acting and dialog. They want everything slanted to them, but as it's pointed out in the film, things can go both ways.....and what's wrong with an even playing field?
'Disclosure' is not to be missed. The plot is well-known enough not to be summarized here, but suffice it to say that this movie is loaded with crackling drama, edge-of-your-seat suspense, witty and snappy dialogue best line - Garvin, on transferring Sanders to Austin: "Making a lateral move to Austin is like a duck making a lateral move to 'a l'orange'". and a celluloid-melting seduction scene. Excellent acting all around I like Michael Douglas, I don't care what they say , and the movie captures in a visceral way the high-powered, high-stakes, cutthroat <more>
world of business politics in the world of leading edge computer hardware and software development. My wife and I both give this one a straight 'A'.
Office Politics, Paranoia & The Abuse Of Power (by seymourblack-1)
By the 1990s when an increasing number of women were filling top jobs in the corporate world, a story about a woman sexually harassing a man became a plausible scenario and the topical and controversial nature of the subject resonated strongly enough with the public at that time to make "Disclosure" a great box office success.Whilst the sexual harassment element of the story was shocking and attention grabbing, it soon became apparent that this was just part of a far larger and more pervasive issue i.e. the abuse of power. In the workplace, where social conventions, various legal <more>
constraints and political correctness all come into play, there is still no escape from the kind of management conspiracies, office politics and duplicity which are depicted so effectively in "Disclosure" or the kinds of distrust and paranoia that they can so easily generate.Tom Sanders Michael Douglas heads one of the divisions of a Seattle computer company and is engaged in the development of a product which is vitally important to the success of a planned and very lucrative merger with another company. There are some problems with the product which Tom and his team are currently dealing with and are under considerable pressure to resolve.As a result of some changes which are taking place within the company, Tom's confident that he'll be promoted but it soon transpires that he's been passed over and the job has been given to one of his ex-girlfriends, Meredith Johnson Demi Moore . On her first day in the job, Meredith arranges a late meeting with Tom to discuss his division's work but during their meeting she aggressively tries to seduce him and is furious when, after a considerable struggle, she's unsuccessful.Meredith responds to Tom's rejection by accusing him of sexual harassment and asserting that in the circumstances, there's no way that she'd be able to work with him again. The company want to avoid any publicity that could have an adverse impact on the upcoming merger and so try to get Tom to take a transfer to another job in their Austin branch. He can't countenance this idea because of the negative effect it would have on his career and is in a very tight spot. Help unexpectedly arrives in the form of an anonymous e-mail which recommends that he consult an attorney called Catherine Alvarez Roma Maffia who's a specialist in sexual harassment cases.Tom decides to fight back and files a counter-suit. The process he has to go through to achieve justice is difficult and painful but irrefutable proof of his innocence is produced and the company agrees to retain him and give him a pay rise.The relief that Tom feels after being cleared of the charges against him is short lived as it quickly becomes apparent that efforts which were originally initiated by Meredith to make him look incompetent have now drawn wider support and he's being set up to be publicly humiliated and undermined at a high profile shareholders' meeting. The way in which Tom copes with this threat then provides the story with its intriguing conclusion.The events in "Disclosure" all take place within the space of one intense week in which Tom's normally affluent and comfortable lifestyle is disrupted as his disappointment at being passed over for promotion turns into discomfort when he discovers the identity of his new boss and then horror as he's threatened with the loss of his job, his wife, his family and his stock options.The false accusation made against him, the plots to make him look incompetent and a workplace where no one can be trusted, create a climate of paranoia which is reinforced when some of his previous innocent actions are characterised as something more sinister and the support of his colleagues is systematically eroded by those high up in the company structure.Michael Douglas gives a good solid performance as the beleaguered Tom and Demi Moore is marvellous as the cold and cruel villain of the piece. Donald Sutherland and Roma Maffia also stand out in their supporting roles.
