Sweaty Cinema - Body Heat (Lawrence Kasdan, 1981, 113 min) “You’re not too smart, are you? I like that in a man.” White-clad Kathleen Turner inveigles sweatily lustful lawyer William Hurt into a definitely R-rated reworking of Double Indemnity. More than one critic at the time noted that it didn’t make a lot of sense for the film’s lead characters to speak in the kind of erotically charged innuendo that was once written to get around censorship, only to then show them actually having sex… The one and only Body Heat!
