    Crimes of Passion

    ★★★★★

    An attack on conservative hypocrisy disguised as an erotic thriller that would make De Palma blush. Walls that look lit from within with neon lighting better fit for a rowdy nightclub than some cheap apartment, terrible music, and a DoP named Dick Bush are just icing on the metaphorical cake of Kathleen Turner’s rapturous performance, a comically large vibrator knife, and Russell’s infallible direction. Possibly the best movie of all time, even if you don’t ignore the terrible, terrible music.

    A covert erotic thriller that (successfully) tries its hardest to obfuscate and repress its steamy impulses in favor of focusing on an intentionally clinical and washed-out mystery. Thankfully, the movie does finally deliver towards the end. It's also slick, tightly plotted, and entertaining. But the ending fucking sucks, and it’s generally unsatisfying despite how promising and amusing most of the journey is. Sorry!
