Great Film-Noir
11 September 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When the body of a woman is found on an isolated beach, Homicide Lieutenant Phil Gaines (Burt Reynolds) and his partner, Sergeant Louis Belgrave (Paul Winfield), are assigned for the investigation. They conclude, with the support of the report of the coroner, that the victim, the hooker and strip-dancer Gloria Hollinger (Sharon Kelly), committed suicide using pills. They omit to the family the existence of excessive semen in Gloria's orifices, but her father Marty Hollinger (Ben Johnson), a veteran of the Korea war, does not accept the police findings and try to locate the possible criminal following a personal investigation. The leads point to the last person to be with Gloria, the dirty and powerful attorney Leo Sellers (Eddie Albert), and also a regular costumer of Phil's girlfriend, the prostitute Nicole Britton(Catherine Deneuve).

"Hustle" is a great film-noir. The story is politically incorrect and all the characters are sordid. Burt Reynolds is great in the role of a tormented, but correct and efficient cop, capable of simulate evidences,living with the dilemma that his girl-friend is a whore, and expecting one day to move to Rome with her. Catherine Deneuve is in the splendor of her beauty in the role of a prostitute. Paul Winfield plays a correct detective, but brutal and racist. Eddie Albert is in the role of a powerful man, capable of killing to reach his objectives. Gloria's mother is an unfaithful wife and Marty is a paranoid and obsessed man. The appearance of the precinct is very real and authentic. Robert "Freddy Kruger" Englund, in the beginning of his career, has a short but important participation in the end of the story as the holdup man in a store. In my opinion, this film is very underrated in IMDb User Rating. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Crime e Paixão" ("Crime and Passion")
