Gritty Ken Russell vehicle - Crimes of Passion review by PT

Spoiler Alert
16/09/2016

Kathleen Turner leads a double life, by day she's a respectable business woman, by night she plys her trade as the hooker China Blue, for the sexual kick, not out of any monetary issues.

Bruce Davison plays the love interest who becomes besotted with the escort. Turner gives her usual Stella performance, but for me the film belongs to Perkins , the insane street preacher intent on saving China Blue's soul. I remember reading in a book by Turner that Anthony Perkins was heavily into drugs on this film set. It shows, as he looks off his rocker, especially when he starts playing the piano. A film I think more for genuine film fans, as opposed to a movie that will appeal to the masses. I thought it was terrific.
