There isn't a lot of passion in Brian De Palma's Passion but there is a love of kinkiness, flirtation, sensation, and the thrill of playing big business games and an odd intimacy that we don't always get in De Palma...
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.
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.
