"You're not anybody in America unless you're on TV. On TV is where we learn about who we really are. Because what's the point of doing anything worthwhile if nobody's watching? And if people are watching, it makes you a better person."
Suzanne Stone Maretto

To Die For was a Black Comedy directed by Gus Van Sant in 1995. The film is an incredibly dark satire on celebrity obsession. Nicole Kidman plays Suzanne Stone Maretto a beautiful and ruthlessly ambitious (if talentless and not overly bright) young woman desperate to become a world famous news anchor, even if she has to commit murder along the way.

Though not a box office success the film was praised by critics and has become a minor Cult Classic. It earned $21,284,514 in the United States market, the 77th most successful film of its year. Kidman earned her first Golden Globe for her role and many fans still rank it with some of her best work (and certainly her best comedy.)

The film also starred Matt Dillon and the then unknown Joaquin Phoenix in one of his first major roles.
