Eight Perfect (Films About) MurdersRepertory Series Archive

Body Heat

Double Feature with BLOOD SIMPLE (2:30, 7:00)

1981 • dir Lawrence Kasdan w/William Hurt, Kathleen Turner, Richard Crenna, Ted Danson, Mickey Rourke • 113 min • 35mm

A more straightforward take on the femme fatale, BODY HEAT casts William Hurt as smalltime Floridian lawyer, Ned Racine. When he starts an affair with the sultry Matty Walker (Turner), the young and beautiful wife of a rich businessman, Ned has no idea the murderous mess he is getting into until it is far, far too late.

“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
