Overview

Psychiatrist Alex (Art Garfunkel) becomes sexually obsessed with Milena (Theresa Russell), a woman whom he meets at a party. The pair become involved in an intense and mutually destructive love affair. The drama unfolds in a series of flashbacks, as Alex tells his story to police Inspector Netusil (Harvey Keitel) who is investigating Milena's apparent suicide attempt. Alex's obsession grows, but Milena stays slightly out of reach. Originally rated X, but somewhat toned down to accommodate an R rating, Bad Timing: A Sensual Obsession is an interesting exploration of the nature of sexual passion and jealousy.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
One of director Nicolas Roeg's most erotic projects was this film about an American divorcee (Teresa Russell) who has an affair with a psychoanalyst in Vienna. The director's arresting visual techniques -- as well as impressive background music from The Who, Keith Jarrett, and Billie Holiday -- add to the claustrophobic, sexually charged atmosphere. Roeg plays with the audience's expectations to deliver a devastating denoument. Bad Timing performed poorly at the box office and divided critics, depending on their appreciation of Roeg's unorthodox techniques.
