Here’s the opening 5 minutes from Brian De Palma’s steamy thriller Passion, starring Rachel McAdams, Noomi Rapace (Prometheus), Karoline Herfurth, and Paul Anderson. It will be available August 1 On Demand and in theaters on August 30.

Said to be in the vein of Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct, “Passion tells the story of a deadly power struggle between two women in the dog-eat-dog world of international business. Christine (McAdams) possesses the natural elegance and casual ease associated with one who has a healthy relationship with money and power. Innocent, lovely, and easily exploited, her admiring protégé, Isabelle (Rapace), is full of cutting-edge ideas that Christine has no qualms about stealing. They’re on the same team, after all… But when Isabelle falls into bed with one of Christine’s lovers, war breaks out.

    I feel compelled to warn BD readers. I went and saw this train wreck at Melbourne International Film Fest a few days ago. It is seriously one of the WORST MOVIES EVER MADE! Seriously, I’ve been sketchy on DePalma for a while but this one made me think the dudes lost his marbles.

    It feels like it’s been written and directed by an 8 year old. The plot is the most predictable plot in cinema history. The acting so incredibly stilted I though they were actually robots. The racy bits in it..I’ve seen racier scenes in toothpaste commercials.

    I was actually wondering by the end of the movie if it was a comedy because I couldn’t understand why an established director could make a steaming pile THIS BAD!! AVOID!!
