"Crimes of Passion" (1984) in LGBT Posted 6 hours ago Ken Russell's "Crime of Passion" might not be considered a gay movie- but it has plenty of gay elements specially behind the scenes. Kathleen Kennedy leads a double life uptight lady by day outrageous hooker by night. She is China Blue who makes her clients fantasies come to life. Anthony Perkins who is way over the top plays a preacher obsessed with saving her even if it means murder. John Laughlin escapes his sexless marriage to Annie Potts by starting a relationship with China Blue- but he wants love and she has other ideas. Written by Barry Sandler the gay scriptwriter of "Making Love" the film might have been more serious than the end results. Ken Russell knows how to make sex both erotic and outrageous. The film is out on blu ray from Arrow video and it has the complete film including the often cut scene in which China Blue rapes a cop with his own nightstick.
