An irresistible comic shocker, with more satisfying surprise twists to its narrative than one finds in a novel by Patricia Highsmith.

At the same time, it makes Linda, possibly, a deeply disquieting wife for Burt -- at least as imagined from outside the marriage. As a friend of Linda's puts it, "He sees what he did to her every single day. I don't know if it's a joy or a punishment."

[Director] Klores and Stevens do a pretty good job filling in the gap using standard documentary techniques.

It's hilarious, more than a little sad, and totally captivating... it's like really juicy gossip at the water cooler, only the people are telling the dirty secrets about themselves.

... though Crazy Love remains a far cry from heartening, it is more amusing than disturbing, especially given the cranky yet symbiotic couple of today.

Crazy is the word for it, and if writer-director Dan Klores seems a bit too sympathetic at times, he still lays out a twisted story of obsession that ends in well-maintained mutual madness.

... Crazy Love is something less than artful, while being completely compelling in its attempt to comprehend the incomprehensible.

The story behind Crazy Love is pretty fascinating. But the storytelling in this documentary isn't always so fascinating.

Dan Klores' crazy relationship doc Crazy Love takes a tale tailor-made for sensationalist treatment and sculpts it into a riveting three-act drama.

The movie's quirk isn't forced; it sincerely ponders the nature of love and of human need.

Klores tells this story as well as its ever likely to be told...[and] as stories go, this one's a doozy.

[Director] Klores coyly omits key information only to wallop us with it later for a gleeful surprise.

Dan Klores's astonishing film is about a subject so bizarre it could only work as a documentary -- as a drama, it would be dismissed as being too far-fetched.

Captures the sheer weirdness of the tale without turning it into sleazy sensationalism...turning what's really a sordid story into a perversely fascinating romance.

Among the weirdest explorations of connubial relationships since Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? And like Edward Albee's 1962 play, it leaves one feeling queasy about human nature.
