Released at a bad time, Ken Russell's 1984 film Crimes of Passion achieved only controversy among movie critics. However, it is a very entertaining light hearted film that casts a satyrical view on love and relationships. Kathleen Turner and Anthony Perkins put in excellent performances churning out dialogue that is bold, sexy, clever and witty. Dick Bush's neon-lit cinematography and the very colorful production design by Stephen Marsh provide a brilliant visual backdrop. Perhaps in an alternate universe, there may have been some awards for this cast and crew!
