Passion DVD review

Barebones release shows label's lack of passion for De Palma's return to form

It seems rather ironic that just as one label is giving Brian De Palma's early films the deluxe treatment on Blu-ray, another is unceremoniously dumping his latest film on DVD. Based on the 2010 French thriller Crime d'amour, Passion finds the filmmaker channelling his early stylistic ticks through an enjoyably twisty tale of corporate intrigue that plays out in the boardroom and the bedroom. Metrodome's DVD offers absolutely nada in the way of extras as well as a modest anamorphic 1.85:1 transfer and DD5.1 audio – so fans may want to import the French Blu-ray release instead.
