The Lonely Hearts advertisement in the singles magazine, that the NYPD took out, was a poem by Frank Keller, Jr.'s (Al Pacino's) mother, written in 1934 while she was in high school. The ad read: "Lady - I live alone within myself like a hut within the woods. I keep my heart high upon a shelf barren of other goods. I need another's touch and smile to fill my hut with songs. I remain; a single, white, male, 42. NYW POB 233". See more »
I've watched it many times and never get tired of it. "Sea of Love" is one of few films where Al Pacino is very sexy, and it is adds to the film's many pleasures. The rest of them are - well constructed story of a New York Homicide cop (Pacino) attracted to a mysterious blond woman with a charming crooked grin (Ellen Barkin - talented, sexy and underrated actress) who may or may not be a serial killer. The chemistry between Pacino and Barkin is powerful and undeniable and the love scenes between them are among the best and most memorable ever filmed. John Goodman is very good as Pacino's partner and friend and yes I love the soundtrack and the title song.
