Crazy Love Reviews

June 7, 2007
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.
June 1, 2007
Like far too many documentaries today, this formulaic kitsch-fest rests on the strengths of its subject matter to avoid having to present artful or deep filmmaking.

Crazy Love has a tabloid story to kill for, and a basic nonfiction form to snooze over.

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

Far too readily tends to play this pathetic story for laughs.

Crazy Love seems to promise a demented, true-life film noir love story and winds up delivering an above-average A&E documentary.

July 11, 2007
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.
May 31, 2007
Klores never succeeds in making these outrageous turns of events all that surprising and Crazy Love feels like obsession that's been warmed over once too often.

The in-your-face documentary recalls the sensational tabloid story from the 1950s.

June 8, 2007
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.

January 25, 2007
Narrowly focused, poorly paced documentary lacks a narrative thrust that could have made for a more compelling film.
July 5, 2007
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.

What's missing from this unusual love story is love.

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

...like the Scott and Laci Peterson saga set to conga music.

There's plenty of black comedy in their twisted affair, but a more substantial documentary wouldn't leave you smiling.

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

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

September 22, 2007
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.
June 20, 2007
You can't make this stuff up.
