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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Brian DePalma March 14, 2014
Format:DVD
Passion was far and away the best film I saw in 2013. I can't understand all the nay sayers regarding this movie. It's intriguing, entertaining, stylish, and really keeps you guessing. It would rate five stars for the photography and background score alone.

2.0 out of 5 stars IT'S JUST BUSINESS July 6, 2013
Format:DVD
The film focuses on the manipulative Christine (Rachel McAdams) who heads the London branch of an ad agency. She desires to get transferred to NY. She has no problem talking credit for Isabel's (Noomi Rapace) ideas. Dirk (Paul Anderson) completes the third side of this unusual love triangle. Isabel attempts to fight back, but is no match for Christine. The back and forth smartly escalates until there is a murder. At this point the film moves from a straight forward film to a who-dun-it, did they really do it mess, which caused me to lose interest and enjoyment.

Brian De Palma fans will see similarities to his other works, which I thought superior. Decent acting and plot, but it wasn't my cup of tea.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, brief nudity (Noomi Rapace)

1.0 out of 5 stars A ludicrous plot about truly stupid people February 18, 2014
Format:DVD
Occasionally, a movie will sound so good on paper, only to be a massive train wreck when it hits the big screen. Critics will take note of this, and it will make no money at all as a result. “Passion” stars Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace as young women working in an advertising firm. One betrays the other, they make up, and a million more betrayals, including an unconvincing lesbian subplot happen. Eventually, the movie devolves into a catfight. A poorly plotted, ridiculously unconvincing and saddeningly poorly acted catfight.

McAdams is in Regina George mode, playing Christine, more or less the head bitch in charge. Except now Regina is maybe fifteen years older, and hadn’t learned a single thing from the accident that almost claimed her life. Rapace, who I really did like in the Swedish “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” miniseries, has no reason to really be here. Her character Isabelle is gullible, stupid, confused and massively unlikable, even though I’m pretty sure she’s supposed to be the protagonist.

Brian DePalma has had massive success in movies like this in the past, but I hate to say that he should have let this one sit in post-production hell. McAdams and Rapace are both fine actresses, and they really do try their best, but these characters are so one-sided and so bland, that even talented actresses like these find themselves all dressed up with no place to go.

If you like a soap opera-esque story that reinforces hideous and misogynistic gender stereotypes, “Passion” might be for you. If you can’t see yourself liking a story that involves two gorgeous women fighting over an ugly man, as well as occasional lesbianism, murder, twin sisters that show up at inconvenient times, and a royal letdown of an ending, I say you should skip this one.

Grade: F

2.0 out of 5 stars `No backstabbing. Just business.' August 4, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Brian De Palma has created such absorbing films as Redacted, The Black Dahlia, Femme Fatale, Mission: Impossible, Carlito's Way, The Bonfire of the Vanities, Casualties of War, The Untouchables, Wise Guys, Scarface, Blow Out among others and is usually a dependable craftsman of tightly woven movies that explore the mind of crime. So why is this film such a mess? Perhaps it is his re-writing of Natalie Carter and Alain Corneau's fine French film "Crime d'amour" with Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier that is at fault or the strange casting of Rachel McAdams and Noomi Repace (both usually fine actresses) in the lead roles, but whatever happened it makes for a very non-De Palma movie - and a thudding predictable bore at that.

Ruthless executive Christine (Rachel McAdams) brings on Isabelle (Noomi Repace) as her assistant, and she takes delight in toying with the young woman's innocence. But when the protégé's ideas become tempting enough for Christine to pass on as her own, she underestimates Isabelle's ambition and cunning -- and the ground is set for all out war. The use of the now infamous spying cameras and computer manipulations are stale, as is complicating the story with a love triangle with the drunken Dirk (Paul Anderson) and a vying for same sex attraction among the two women and Isabelle's protégé Dani (Karoline Herfurth). The clues to the silly crimes committed are offered in the first part of the film only to resurrect in the end in a vapid conclusion. Professional women who care about their perception as leaders will be appalled by this flimsy, thoughtless, poorly paced tale of humiliation and revenge and murder. Strange because McAdams and Repace are usually so fine when they have good material. Grady Harp, August 13
