Editorial Reviews

Brian De Palma returns to the sleek, sly, seductive territory of Dressed To Kill with an erotic thriller fueled by sex, ambition and the murderous side of Passion. Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace star as two female executives whose fierce competition to rise up the ranks is about to turn literally cut-throat. Bonus Features: Interviews with Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace

Format:Blu-ray
"There's no backstabbing here, it's just business." Christine (McAdams) and Isabelle (Rapace) are ad executives who have friendly relationship. After coming up with a great ad idea for jeans Isabelle is sent to London to pitch it. When it becomes a hit and is picked up Christine takes the credit. This event begins a chain reaction of trying to one up the other that quickly spirals out of control. I have been watching as many movies as I can without seeing the trailer first, that way I have no preconceived expectations. That said knowing Noomi Rapace was in this and Brian De Palma directed this I was excited. I was not disappointed at all. De Palma is the master of the erotic thriller and he again proves why with this movie. The beginning is a little slow but you will be glad you stuck with it. Because I watch so many movies I am getting very good at predicting how a movie will play out. This is one that was consistently one step ahead of me and as soon as I thought I knew what was going on I was proved wrong. To me that is what makes a good movie, being surprised with how it will go keeps you watching and wondering. I am very surprised at how much I enjoyed this. I highly recommend this. I give it an A-.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good DePalma Thriller November 10, 2013
By Tim
Format:DVD
Im one of the few that really liked this movie.It kinda starts slow and I got a feeling that's what lost most people.I stuck thru all the corporate female cat fighting,lezbo stuff and when the dust cleared ..we got a good revenge DePalma thriller.I found vintage DePalma music scores captivating during certain scenes(he's a master at that},split screen scenes{that hes also a master of},very interesting.Confusing at times?? Yes.Entertaining and well done erotic thriller?? Yes! Someone kills the boss from hell...who??? I would like to see more stuff from him if he sticks to the crime thrillers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible February 22, 2014
Format:DVD
I like Brian DePalma's films -- but this is like something he made back in high school before he learned how to write and direct. Read all of the bad reviews -- they are dead on.

I would not even give this one star but I am forced to by Amazon or they will not let me write a review.

Do not buy this film, do not rent it, and if a friend is watching it get up and leave. You have better things to do with your life.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just say no February 14, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This movie will melt your brain. I was super excited about the cast and thought the movie would at least be watchable. I was dead wrong. The story awful, the excessive use of dream sequences gets really old incredibly fast, and all of the 'shock' moments just fall flat. Most disappointing is that it is not sexy or enticing in any way shape or form, it's just awkward, really awkward. It takes a lot for me to give a movie one star, but this mess deserves it. I've watched C-rate Sci-fi flicks more entertaining.

3.0 out of 5 stars Trashy and ridiculous but entertaining January 26, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
An OK thriller by a master of the genre. Brian De Palma's latest film is sleazy and trashy but entertaining. A bitchy executive in an ad company (Rachel McAdams) starts plotting against her seemingly nice assistant (Swedish actress Noomi Rapace, who played Lisbeth Salander in the Millennium trilogy) when she learns she is having an affair with her own lover, the sleazy Dirk (Paul Anderson). And this is only the beginning. Given the name and work of the director, I was surprised by the low production values of this film. Filmed in Germany, the movie has the look of a straight to video erotic thriller. For instance, even though the action takes place within a large company, only four people seem to be working there. De Palma it seems didn't even have enough of a budget to hire extras. This is a remake of a French film that is reportedly better. Still, it is entertaining, even if the plot become more and more ridiculous. The fine performances of Rapace and McAdams help.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring - September 11, 2013
By Rachel
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I love Rachel McAdams so that is why I was interested in this movie. Well I am just glad I didn't pay to go see it in the theaters. I actually was going to fall asleep mid way through so I turned it off and finished it when I woke up.

I didn't follow the story at times and I found the ending confusing. Perhaps I am just not familiar with this type of film, but it w disappointing.

3.0 out of 5 stars My review of "Passion" September 8, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Despite being tonally inconsistent and silly at times, it's a (somewhat) welcome return to form for De Palma, even if his Hitchcock-aping doesn't really take effect until the last act. Structurally and tonally, one can divide this movie into three parts: The first is kind of like a dramedy (suggested by the soundtrack), the second is more of a melodrama and the third (and final) act goes into full WTF mode as De Palma pulls every trick in his admittedly small book and tries to get to the viewer to question the reality of everything they see. As such, the movie isn't really that effective until this section, with most of the prior dialogue seeming sophomoric and shallow, much like the relationships and characters in the film. Still, this movie is worth watching for that final act. It's style over substance, but it's got quite a sense of style.

2.0 out of 5 stars PASSION Is Surprisingly Passionless November 1, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
There are subtle truths associated to some Hollyweird productions that no one - certainly not the media - like to talk about: for example, there are some directors who clout both domestically and internationally is strong enough that an average picture gets an above-average critical endorsement. This assures both the studio, its creditors, and its stars that being part of an "Insert Critically-Favored Director's Name Here" automatically earns you `street cred' with the media establishment. Where this truth really comes into play is when said director releases a below-average picture - one that probably would end up being little more than a direct-to-DVD product much less granted a theatrical run - and everyone rushes to label it as acceptable, despite the fact that it may be bloated, forgettable, or entirely self-absorbed.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and characters. If you're the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I'd encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you're accepting of a few modest hints at `things to come,' then read on ...)

Isabelle James (played by current `it girl' Noomi Rapace) is a talented advertising designer. Unfortunately, she finds herself largely being wasted, used, and abused by her current boss, Christine Stanford (played by former `it girl' Rachel McAdams). Neither woman can deny a curious attraction between them, but when Isabelle decides to put her work as a viral sensation on the web Christine realizes she can no longer take credit for it. The two find themselves at odds, and, unless they can get their respective passions under control, it all might end up in murder!
