Body Heat (1981)

Production Year: 1981
During a suffocating summer in Florida, which is crazed by a wickedly hot and constant ostro, William Hurt meets one night Kathleen Turner, a spider-woman who will drag him to her web, seduce him and lead him to crime. All that in the lovely new-noir debut that placed Lawrence Kasdan's name («The Big Chill») on the list with the 80s most sought-after directors, promoted William Hurt as a top American actor of that decade and established Kathleen Turner's figure among the most timeless male fantasies.
In terms of theme and style «Body Heat» refers to legendary works such as «Double Indemnity» and «The Postman Always Rings Twice», but thanks to its well-written scenario, the sharp dialogue, the atmospheric direction and the impeccable outlining of characters it manages to modernize the archetypal elements that it borrows in service of an exciting erotic thriller which rightfully enjoys the fame of a classic.
