BODY HEAT

Double Feature with THE LAST SEDUCTION

Shows in place of BLACK WIDOW.

(1981) dir Lawrence Kasdan w/William Hurt, Kathleen Turner, Richard Crenna, Ted Danson, Mickey Rourke [113 min; 35mm]
With its amped-up sexuality and disabled moral compass, BODY HEAT is arguably the film that launched the 80s/90s neo-noir craze. This is thanks in large part to the smoldering screen debut of Kathleen Turner as a woman who manipulates an incompetent lawyer (Hurt) into a complicated murder scheme against her rich husband.

“While Body Heat involves murder, fraud, a weak hero led astray and a seductive, double-dealing broad, it also incorporates something new: a sexual explicitness that the old films could only hint at.” – Janet Maslin, New York Times (8/28/1981)

“In 1981 Lawrence Kasdan was in the dream spot for a Hollywood screenwriter … BODY HEAT was his first effort at directing one of his own scripts, and it is a taut, gripping Noir thriller in the classic style, updated for the ‘modern’ sensibility.” Eric Shoag writes about BODY HEAT for Brattle Film Notes
