The movie is not a wild river but a humid delta of stagnant frustration and stymied movement, so it's all the more impressive that it's such a gripping spectatorial experience.

Whilst the Jack/Jessica version was entertaining it was seemingly only interested in 'pushing the envelope', this film doesn't need to do any of that - and doesn't - it just plays out the story, and that's gripping enough.

Garfield and Turner electrify; there's no nudity or on-screen sex in the picture, yet the erotic charge between these two is incredibly potent.

The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946) is one of the best film noirs of all time - and one of the earliest prototypes of today's 'erotic thrillers.'

what it lacks in sex it gains in passions of other sorts. It smolders.
