BOSTON GLOBE SAYS 'PASSION' JULY 3RD
AND TIME OUT NY CALLS 'PASSION' ONE OF 30 COOLEST THINGS TO SEE THIS SUMMER
Most of the summer movie previews have been listing Brian De Palma's Passion as a vague July release, with the exact date to be determined. While sites such as Rotten Tomatoes and Coming Soon.net continue to list Passion as a limited release beginning June 7, The Boston Globe's summer movie preview, posted yesterday, has the film slotted squarely for July 3, which is a Wednesday, and is also the day before Independence Day. Passion might be considered counter-programming for that day's big tentpole release, The Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp, except it will likely be on far fewer screens, in far fewer theaters. Also opening that day is Despicable Me 2. Opening a mere five days prior to July 3 are two other films expected to do big business: White House Down, with Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum, and The Heat, the comedy which pairs Sandra Bullock with Melissa McCarthy. The Globe's line on Passion reads, "Things get hot and heated between ad agency head Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace, her protégée (consider that a euphemism)."

Meanwhile, Time Out New York includes Passion on its list of "The 30 coolest things to see this summer." The article was written by David Fear, Joshua Rothkopf, and Keith Uhlich, and we have a feeling that the latter probably wrote the following passage recommending Passion: "Returning to the genre he does best, Brian De Palma concocts a deliciously catty erotic thriller, about an advertising-agency protégé (Noomi Rapace) out for revenge against her manipulative boss (Rachel McAdams). Throat-slitting straight razors and sapphic sex scenes are, of course, included."

I will finally see it tonight! Here is a review from an Icelandic newspaper 2/5 stars. I haven't read it though, since I have been avoiding spoilers.

  I'm sorry to say that I was disappointed with Passion. There are some scenes and of course the latter half is ten times better than the first, but still it feels like his heart was not in this one. Right now I actually think this is my least favourite De Palma film. Maybe my expectations were too high. But who knows, once I disliked both Carrie and Raising Cain. Now I love them!
