The TIFF YouTube account keeps expanding, just now adding the first trailer for Brian DePalma‘s “erotic thriller” Passion. 99.9% of films labelled as erotic thrillers have failed to satisfy on either count, but surely DePalma will manage one or the other?
Yeah, that looks like a Brian DePalma film. It looks more like a Brian DePalma film than it does Crime D’Amour, of which it is a remake. I mean, both had slightly canted long shots of offices in them – in their trailers, even – but that’s a pretty slight stylistic cross-over.
I sought out Crime D’Amour once I found out DePalma was doing it over. It’s not a bad basis for a bit of sort-of-thrilling silliness and I think this remake could be great fun.
