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.

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.

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.

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.

Interviews with Burt and Linda Pugach, the New York couple whose tabloid lives are chronicled in Dan Klores' docu-curio Crazy Love, have been politely nonjudgmental. After seeing the movie, I'd like to say I hate one and pity the other.

A documentary about a mad love affair, a movie that's about as compulsively watchable as a great tabloid headline story is compulsively readable -- and also a lot more rewarding.

In the sense that everyone is interesting once their lives are sufficiently unpacked, Burt and Linda's story is not boring -- but beyond its tabloid sensationalism, it's not especially significant either.

Driven by interviews with the couple and their friends, it's unavoidably a talking-heads film, but home movies help to fill out their story, and so do their appearances on several famous talk shows.

This astounding saga, which is told strictly in chronological order with lots of well-chosen film clips and photographs, is recounted mostly by the now elderly Pugach and Riss themselves.

Formally, [director Klores'] film is a standard-issue documentary, combining period footage with talking-head interviews. But his talking heads are a hoot and their story is a Gothic yarn of obsession, crime and forgiveness.

Like any good documentarian (and unlike most publicists), Klores lets us draw our own conclusions. With a tone free of outrage or judgment, he tells the story of Pugach, a successful young lawyer, and Riss, a hottie with a taste for the good life.
