HASH(0xa7911cc0) out of 5 stars Up-close and intimate Oct. 24 2002
By Martyn Richard Jones - Published on
Format: VHS Tape
The films I watch tend to be action films of the likes of Arnie, Stallone and Gibson et al. So it may come as a surprise that I say that I think this film is a real gem. So why do I think that? Well, for a start it's just a pure delight from start to end. Great acting, great directing, great storyline. It's a southern story played out with charm, elegance and humanity. It's really very diificult to say exactly why one likes this movie because it really is a special personal experience that covers so many things, from aspects of motivation, the way the characters reflect and even just their accents. I will never forget those simple lines "oh babe why did you do it" and the replies, or the "she was just having a very bad day" lines too. It's a very personal film, laid back, up-close, intimate, soft, a work of art. Brilliant acting, brilliant direction and brilliant script - lovely film.

HASH(0xa7941660) out of 5 stars Very entertaining! July 19 2006
By the apollo review - Published on

Typically films that blend comedy and drama don't come off very well. They have a tendency to swing from one extreme to the other without establishing a happy medium. "Crimes of the Heart" is not like that at all. The blend of comedy and drama is smooth and effortless. Basically the premise is a look at the relationship between the quirky Magrath sisters in the small town of Hazlehurst Mississippi. Elder sister Lenny (Diane Keaton) is an aging spinster with little experience with men. Middle sister Meg (Jessica Lange) has had more than her fair share of men and scandals that result. Youngest sister Babe (Sissy Spacek) has just shot her abusive husband and is facing a lengthy prison term if convicted. It is this event that brings the sisters together where their idiosyncrasies and past resentments surface and set the stage for some amusing confrontations and revelations. To me this film is synonymous with a warm hug as the atmosphere is very welcoming and familiar and as viewers we can really feel like a part of the Magrath sister's world. The performances are terrific and very natural. There's no impression of upstaging or attention mongering. The three leads act with each other as opposed to acting "at" each other. Tess Harper and Sam Shepard complete the film with their supporting turns. This is a great film that gets better with additional viewings and interestingly enough becomes more compelling and entertaining. Lots of fun!

`Crimes of the heart' is a wonderful movie based on the Pulitzer Prize winning play by Beth Henley.

The story is about three sisters, Lenny (Diane Keaton), Meg (Jessica Lange), and Becky (Sissy Spacek), who reunite together after a long time when Babe (Becky) shoots her husband. Due to the fact that their mother committed suicide when they were young, the three girls have completely different personalities from each other. Lenny, the oldest, is a reticent woman having problems with relationships because she thinks low of herself due of her medical problems. Meg, the middle sister, leaves the family at a young age to pursue a career in Hollywood, only to end up in failure. Babe, the youngest sister, shoots her husband because of the abuse and loneliness through the years. As the days pass, the three sisters come closer again and face each other's difficulties.

This was a delightful movie to watch, due to many reasons. Firstly, the entire cast acted wonderfully. When you see names like Sissy Spacek, Diane Keaton and Jessica Lange, you know you are going to see powerful performances of the characters in the movie. They all acted faultlessly in their own way according to their roles. Secondly, Bruce Beresford did a great job in brining Beth Henley's award-winning play to the screen. Furthermore, the background music also added well to the movie.

I wouldn't recommend this movie to everyone, but if you enjoy watching dark-comedy movies, then you will like this one.

I saw this movie on tv in the late 80's and it's always stayed with me. I now on it and watch it from time to time. the best thing about this movie is of course the actors! all 3 woman are amazing and some really good supporting roles as well. it has some pretty touching subjects in the film. dealing with death, abuse and an interacial love afair. so if you want a movie that has some pretty darn funny stuff in it thats also touching with some damn good performances then watch this movie!

HASH(0xa7daa1f8) out of 5 stars Great movie July 31 2002
By Ralph R. Echtinaw - Published on
Format: VHS Tape
Usually when I sense that the actors had a great time making a movie, the result isn't particularly noteworthy. ("Cannonball Run" comes to mind.) But "Crimes of the Heart" is an exception. If Jessica Lange, Diane Keaton and Sissy Spacek weren't absolutely delighted to tackle the lead roles in this film, they are much better actors than I thought.
The material is reminiscent of Flannery O'Connor, who wrote some of the most humorous, offbeat Southern fiction extant.
The three sisters are so controlled by their visceral reactions that one wonders if any of them have ever had an intellectual moment. Although it would be maddening to have such people for friends, they're great instruments for movie comedy.
One final note: If anyone thinks Sissy Spacek is goofy-looking (as I used to), they will change their mind when they see her in this. She is absolutely gorgeous here.
