Crimes Of Passion (1984)

Thursday 7th July 2016

With its outré screenplay by Barry Sandler and over the top score by Rick Wakeman, Crimes of Passion, released on dual-format DVD and Blu-ray on 11th July 2016 courtesy of Arrow Films, may just be the most outrageous Ken Russell film ever made and that's quite some feat!

In the early eighties British enfant terrible Ken Russell (Altered States, The Lair of the White Worm, Tommy) travelled to America and placed his unorthodox imprint on a pair of US movies. The first was the Altered States, so out-there its screenwriter disowned it. The second was the equally crazy Crimes of Passion, starring Kathleen Turner (Body Heat, Serial Mom) at the height of her powers.

Fashion designer Joanna Crane (Turner) leads a double life. By night she is China Blue, a prostitute who's attracted the unwanted attention of two men. One is a sexually frustrated private detective hired by her employees. The other is psychopathic priest (played by Norman Bates himself, Anthony Perkins) in possession of a murderous sex toy.

With its outré screenplay by Barry Sandler and over the top score by Rick Wakeman, Crimes of Passion, released on dual-format DVD and Blu-ray on 11th July 2016 courtesy of Arrow Films, may just be the most outrageous Ken Russell film ever made and that's quite some feat!
