    A brilliant central performance by William Hurt as a Florida lawyer caught up in an obsessive affair with Kathleen Turner's married woman which leads to them plotting the murder of her husband. Writer/director Lawrence Kasdan clearly used Double Indemnity as a blueprint but adds some nifty twists and turns, not to mention a high sexual charge to the proceedings. There are some notable supporting performances from Ted Danson, Richard Crenna and Mickey Rourke too. A marvellously "80s" thriller, and that's intended as a compliment. 6 years 11 months ago
