Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This high-quality contemporary film noir depends primarily on the skills of Al Pacino, who delivers a comeback performance as the desperate cop falling for one of his suspects. Pacino had appeared on screen only once since Scarface -- in 1985's flop Revolution -- and Sea of Love was widely considered some of his best work since the mid-1970s. As the femme fatale, Ellen Barkin charges the movie with sexual energy and anguish. Based on his novel Ladies' Man, Richard Price's screenplay is by turns funny, suspenseful, and melancholic as it pays homage to the classic film noir structure. The material is perfectly suited not only to Pacino's performance but also to the appropriately pallid cinematography of Ronnie Taylor.
