Passion

It's Wednesday, hump day, which means the weekend is now appearing on the horizon, but there's still a bit of a journey before the work week is done and you can put up your feet for a couple days. And given that we're in the middle of summer, it means that prime time TV is a wasteland and given the blockbuster options right now, there isn't much reason to head to the multiplex. But quietly arriving on VOD today is Brian De Palma's "Passion," and to nudge you along in ordering it up this evening the first four minutes of the movie have been placed online.

As you know, the pic, a remake of Alain Corneau's "Love Crime," stars Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace as friends working at the same ad agency. But that soon becomes tested when personal and professional rivalry and betrayal come to the fore in a twisty, distinctly B-movie thriller. And as you'll see in these first few minutes, there is either an arch knowingness of the campiness of the endeavour or...something seems to be missing to pull it together. But regardless, McAdams and Rapace squaring off against each other does offer some value.

Watch below and order it up tonight or catch it in theaters on August 31st. Be sure to check out our interview with Brian De Palma right here. [JoBlo]

    Seen it... One of the best comedies of the year!

    It's not as good as the French version with Kristin Scott Thomas, which I highly recommend watching on Netflix. I really was hoping it would be since it's De Palama, but it was very campy, and weird to watch. These are both great actresses but they're performances are laughable at times. I was very disappointed to say the least.

    This adaptation was leery in regards to Crime d'Amour from the get-go because the age dynamic between the two leads is lost.

    Love De Palma, and was excited to see this. But the whole movie feels like De Palma spoofing himself to an even more nonsensical degree than usual while managing to lack the stylish fun that is normally his saving grace when in that mode.

    Looks like a student film? And not a good one... Still, I love De Palma - the true heir to Hitchcock.
