L’Amour à Minuit: Crimes of Passion (1984)

L’Amour à Minuit: Crimes of Passion (1984)

Thursday, Jun 27 , 11 p.m. to Friday, Jun 28 , 2:30 a.m.

For one night of neon-lit sleaze, L’Amour à Minuit (LAM) presents Ken Russell’s dividing erotic thriller, Crimes of Passion (1984), a film that was ordained with an X-rating, though not released until it was cut down heavily enough to receive an R. Featuring Kathleen Turner as a sex-worker by night and fashion designer by day, Anthony Perkins as a sadomasochistic priest, and John Laughlin as a sexually frustrated husband and surveillance worker, we’re excited to present the uncut version, in all its perverted glory.

Doors: 11 pm, Thursday, June 27th

Film: Midnight – we appreciate your punctuality.

Drinks: Bar on-site, cash or card.

Location: Cinema L’Amour (4015 Boul. St-Laurent)

Synopsis: Joanna Crane is a mysterious fashion designer, but she also happens to be China Blue. As a sex-worker, China Blue has attracted the obsession of two men: a perverted priest, whose fixation becomes murderous, and a high school football-star turned father that is yearning for sexual exploration. Original, outrageous, and unforgettable.

Please note the film will be presented in English. 112 mins.

LAM screenings aim to curate a selection of films that evoke the nostalgia of midnight movies. As midnight strikes, Cinema L’Amour will be reborn, presenting a diverse repertoire of forgotten gems from a bygone era. Venture into a thrilling cinematic journey, embracing the allure of experimental storytelling and playful eroticism.
