Crazy Love...sidles up to us, thrills and surprises us, seduces us with the pop flavor of its mid-century paperback aesthetic and its titillating tabloid tale. Crazy Love is chummy.

Stranger than fiction: This decades-long amour fou is so astonishing in its twists and turns that it's hard to believe it's factual. While contextualizing the tale in the pre-feminist era, Klores leaves some mysteries open, thus allowing for speculation

As with all banner-head stories, there comes a point when you tire of being screamed at.

A Bronx tale full of jaw-dropping behavior and jaw-dropping hairdos.

Directors Dan Klores and Fisher Stevens treat this as a straight-up documentary and it is fascinating in a terribly sad sort of way. But it's difficult not to wonder why we need to hear this story.

It's too easy to feel superior to these two people and their marriage in hell for the sake of some easy (or even uneasy) laughter.

The film lassoes you in with "ya gotta hear this" prurience.

Crazy Love is tabloid journalism at its most base and vulgar, with the same moral bankruptcy as the media outlets that turned this tragedy into grotesque copy in the first place.

You say 'psychotic codependency' like it's a bad thing.

Equal parts heartwarming and repulsive, the compulsively watchable film is certainly 90 of the fastest, weirdest minutes I've spent in a theater in a long time.

Particularly because many viewers have already seen the TV-news version, almost any other genre would have been even more compelling -- a fictionalized drama, perhaps, or Truman Capote-style narrative non-fiction.

Despite knowing some of the story's more jaw-dropping developments beforehand, I was still riveted and surprised by the movie.
