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.
