Red Wind is an unusual, artistic movie that premiered on TV in 1991. Lisa Hartman stars as Kris, a psychotherapist who inadvertently and naively allows a new patient, Lila, to intrude into her personal life. Her husband abuses her, she tells Kris. Kris finds Lila's behavior both intriguing and disturbing, and eventually she becomes entangled with her in a dangerous situation.

Kris becomes sexually involved with Charlie (played by Philip Casnoff), a sadomasochistic detective. They have an unhealthy relationship, but Kris finds herself torn between her attraction for him and her gut instinct that tells her to end the relationship. This, combined with the stress of the situation with Lila, sends Kris into a downward spiral. There are many plot twists and the climax is shocking and one I did not expect.

Lisa Hartman and Philip Casnoff make this movie great. The Miami location adds the right atmosphere to the film, and the score is effective. Look for the nightclub scene where Lisa Hartman has few lines but conveys perfectly her character's transition into a different lifestyle unknown to her. Excellent movie. It airs occasionally on Lifetime Movie Network.
