This film is an old-fashioned glove that still fits De Palma pretty comfortably.

Movie Mezzanine

The plot is secondary to the delightfully strange and impeccably soapy vibes; the marriage of camp and cheap Euro-eroticism masquerading as serious art.

De Palma wallows in the excesses of his cutthroat corporate connivers ... Virtually actor proof, his movie withstands performances that aren't as wild and liberated as his direction.

It feels like a reunion with a weird old friend, the kind who's obsessed with the kinkier side of Alfred Hitchcock, Emmanuelle movies, sensual body lotions and smooth jazz sax solos.

generates suspense and tension the old-fashioned way while simultaneously heightening everything to the point of near absurdity

The corporate machinations suggest something closer to a dark comedy than to a thriller. You don't walk away chilled, as you do from "Vertigo," but tickled by the coldness and lifted by the beauty of the style.

"Passion" is often sleek and enjoyable, dispensing titillation, suspense and a few laughs without taking itself too seriously.

Struggling with warts and all, "Passion" is a loopy but fun late-night thriller brimming with style and vitality from one of America's most exciting film makers.

Those who submit to the movie's spell may well find themselves giddy at how viscerally and confidently an old master can deploy the tools of his trade.

Passion is pretty good. If you cared enough to make a list, it might be your fifth or sixth favorite De Palma.

indieWIRE once a classy suspense movie and an unquestionably silly affair. Regardless of its glaring flaws, "Passion" is reassuringly old school.

This is half a good De Palma film, which means it's still superior to most movies.

Doesn't really break any new ground for the director, and yet as a technical exercise it's nice to see De Palma back in his element.

The Dissolve

The movie is one long game of misdirection, playing tricks on viewers from scene to scene, and showing how easy it is to steer a crowd into missing something important.

Though not quite the return to form we might have hoped for, this Euro-flavoured noir thriller offers a watchable enough cocktail of sordid betrayal, corporate backstabbing and kinky face masks.

All the problems that I have with Passion narratively are overshadowed by the fact that De Palma the visual master has shown signs of life for the first time in a decade.

Brian De Palma is one of the great seducers of the cinema, and he proves it with "Passion," a spellbinding thriller.

Brian Orndorf

Undeniable energy to the work, and its screwball execution cements the effort as a guilty pleasure. After the dreary, amateurish antics of Redacted, to have De Palma back in the thick of mental illness is something to celebrate.

Precise in its aesthetics, it's an excellent late-period work that shows, without being over-bearing, how the ascent of the corporate ladder can sometimes be a descent into a deeper circle of hell.
