1981's Body Heat had all the ingredients to be really quite awful. Turned out to be not so. Star Wars co-writer Lawrence Kasdan' s debut in the directors chair was also to be the curtain raising feature for the movies true star Kathleen Turner. She positively rocks my world as the nasty scheming 'Marty Walker'. William Hurt co-stars as the doomed 'Ned Racine'. Poor Ned falls so madly in love with Maddie, that he even commits to murder on what is supposedly their joint behalf. To be fair, Turners on thus form could seduce those no longer with us. It all somehow feels too smart to labelled an erotic thiller, so only hesitantly will I call it so. The best movie of it's type.
Panoramic views of Florida are a bonus. A good adult movie that explores the narcissistic behaviour of sex and greed mixed with exploitation and lies. You know a regular sort of relationship between a man and a woman.
This is a film I have watched at least three times in the past, so wanted it 'on the shelf'. The plot is brilliant and the atmosphere created during the hot summer nights as the plot builds is also very clever. William Hurt and Kathleen Turner work well together. It's an old film now in 2014, but never seems dated to me.
This film director went out to make a modern day classic film noir movie and succeeded ten fold. It has all the ingredients a film noir must have and more supported by an original film soundtrack score which I listen too all of the time. Get it or regret it later!
