Crazy Love (2007)

Director(s): Dan Klores, Fisher Stevens. 92 min. Rated PG-13. Documentary.

A young lawyer in the 1950s falls (literally) madly in love with a woman, and does something (physically) terrible to her to make her his own. And what happens between them afterward is considerably worse than the initial traumatizing event. I found this film disgusting, because it shows while the same act by men in underdeveloped countries is called savagery and barbarism, in a developed country, it's sugarcoated with money lust and lawyer sweet-talk, and presented to us as "love". Similar to The Dog, these are modern society losers and low-lifes, who don't deserve advertising via a glamorized documentary.

Mo says:


  1. What a bizarre documentary about some truly twisted characters, by the end I had no sympathy left for Linda Riss. She didn't deserve what happened to her but to then marry the guy was beyond calculating. She just wanted someone to look after her, which is understandable but Burt Pugach!
    I'm glad I watched this though but wouldn't recommend others to do so.

    1. I'm glad you approve. Whatever it was between these two, it wasn't love. In the end, the man was a greedy caveman, and the woman was after his money. Even though I was engaged till the very end, I would never recommend this to anybody either.
