On the surface there is a lot not to like about this movie, especially if one is not a huge fan of either the perpetually inebriated Oliver Reed or the real life kidnapped heiress Patty Hearst, on whose experiences the story is loosely based.

What is great about the first half of the movie is the quite delicious and surreal abduction of our spoilt little rich girl heroine followed by some of the kinkiest torture and brainwashing that ever made it into a relatively mainstream 1980s movie... this made a great impression on me when I saw it cira late 80s and those scenes have stayed with me to this day, along with a lifelong kink for blacked out swimming goggles and hanging upside down half stripped by my ankles while attractive young women hug me and tell me it's all ok.

The second half of the movie has virtually no merits whatsoever, there is a very boring doomed love affair between our Hearst analogue and her Japanese boyfriend and too much of Mr Reed, so I would recommend just watching it to the half way mark for the good bits... unless you have a partner you're trying to recruit or test the water with, in which case tell them it's a romance :P and gauge their reactions to the interesting bits while you try not to blush too much.

The tagline for this movie was "They Imprisoned Her Body, But Freed Her Mind"... perhaps it will help you to do the same to someone else. ;)

Two women are topless only. One is topless twice but don't really get a good view. The other is topless three times. All topless scenes are very brief

This movie is an interesting tale about kidnapping and terrorism. The soundtrack is great and the story is too.

Give this one a miss. In spite of the blurbs, it's not so much salacious as tedious, with some scenes appearing to be injected because someone thought that they looked artsy and cool rather than because they furthered the plot. It's slow, often dull, and ultimately disappointing

The director appears to have been unable to decide if he was making a film about the Stockholm Syndrome or a titillating action/adventure. You end up getting a bit of both, but not enough of either.

A rich girl is kidnapped and brainwashed by a group of anarchists. She eventually joins them in their violent (by 1960's standards) crime spree. Plenty of nudity during her torture/indoctrination, and several subsequent love scenes.

Many years ago as very young boy I had heard that records in a radio and copied it on a CC tape. Then through years I tried to find the CD version. Finaly I have found and felt ones more in love, :-). When you only listen to a music you can image the pictures, but what are the pictures about? The movie Captive I purchased some time ago here at Amazon is a DVD copy version of VHS movie isssued in 1986. So, the pictures are not so important if you realy love that music by the Egde from U2. The story is about a rich girl who lives with her father in a large house. She is kidnapped by three men and subjected to mental and sexual torture in an attempt tto brainwash her. Interested enough?

Not a good film. Irina brook is attractive and plays the captive well. The film loses its narrative drive when the captive is free. A fictional retelling of the hearst kidnapping from the 1970s.
