5.0 out of 5 stars A sexy film noir, great score, superb plot twist, 23 Jun 2000
This review is from: Body Heat [VHS] (VHS Tape)
One of my favourite films (others are The Usual Suspects, Apocalypse Now, The Sixth Sense, Diner and Diva).
This film sustains repeated viewing because of the atmosphere generated by the director, which conjures up the heady, sweaty Florida heatwave; the greed, lust and deviousness of it's two main protagonists, and the wonderful score by John Barry.
The script is superb, the performance of William Hurt, Kathleen Turner and Mickey Rourke (it was Turner's and Rourke's debut) are exceptional, and the plot is just a dream come true.
If you like films that will entertain you, and then leave you feeling dumb at the end because of a plot twist, then this is for you.
See it, and drink in it's atmosphere, and I hope (like The Sixth Sense) that the first thing you want to do after watching it, is watch it again.
