For those who think Film Noir is buried in the B&W of the 1940s – think again. It may be colorful, but there’s also plenty of Noir’s signature mix of simmering heat and cold calculation in this classic from the 1980s. Kathleen Turner plays a devious wife who spins a web that traps a naïve, mesmerized lawyer (William Hurt) in a scheme to kill her husband. Writer-director Lawrence Kasdan, in his directorial debut, keeps the suspense and eroticism at full power, with plot twists aplenty in what is very satisfying reworking of the landmark Noir movie “Double Indemnity” – scripted by Raymond Chandler. He expertly uses the heat of the coastal Florida milieu; the film practically sweats. But the local weather and stuffy interiors of this Deep South Noir are only part of the reason it feels so hot: Turner is so sultry that it's hard to imagine this was her first starring role. The film launched her career and Kasdan’s and jump-started a Noir revival that had begun with “Chinatown” in 1974. Ted Danson, Mickey Rourke, and Richard Crenna provide solid support.
