My rating: 9/10
Will I watch it again? YES!
Ooh, this is a steamy one. Lawrence Kasden knocked this one out of the park with his screenplay and direction. It's a fantastic modern noir. Every aspect screams 1940s/1950s film noir from the look, the costumes, dialogue to John Barry's magnificently sexy score (damn, he was good). William Hurt plays a great sucker and Kathleen Turner's (her first starring role) performance sits up there with the best femme fatales of all time. She sizzles like nobody's business. Kasdan does a great job turning up the heat from the locale to the sex scenes. I feel like sweating when I watch it. If you have seen this then you owe it to yourself to stop what your doing and slap it in (gee, if I had a nickel...).
