Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The prime example of Ken Russell's proclivity for examining bizarre sexual underworlds, Crimes of Passion fails to generate resonance from its sensationalist subject matter, more concerned with taboo than insight. Anthony Perkins' porno priest, who quotes Bible passages moments after emerging from a peep show (and that's his least ripe offense), is the epitome of Russell's cartoonish, overstated approach. Kathleen Turner provides some balance to Perkins' scenery chewing, enough for the Los Angeles Film Critics' Association to have honored her as Best Actress, but she fights a losing battle with Russell's aggressive desire to shock. The film is so grisly and fixed in its perverted milieu that the daytime scenes feel like they might have been spliced from another movie. As a result, the B-story about the unraveling marriage doesn't work. Still, Russell has earned kudos for his unwillingness to soften his agenda, and Crimes of Passion wins some respect solely on the basis of this audacity. Ever eager to remove any glamour from the world of prostitution, Russell again explored the underbelly of the world's oldest trade in Whore (1991), which left viewers and critics cold for similar reasons.

    VICTIMLESS CRIMES

    This one has its moments, but its a lot of Ken Russell weirdness. Its part (1980's) MTV video and part psycho-sexual thriller.It never comes together, but when you get to see Kathleen Turner ham it up as Miss Liberty, and Anthony Perkins rant on as a perverted parson, you can't feel cheated. Its an hour and a half victimless crime. Watch the unrated,Euro version, if possible.
