SEA OF LOVE
1989, Universal, 113 min, USA, Dir: Harold Becker

Burned-out New York City detective Frank Keller (Al Pacino) gets the call when a man is found murdered with a 45 of the song “Sea of Love” at his bedside. Among Keller’s few leads is a personals ad that had been placed by the victim; teaming up with another investigator (John Goodman) working a similar case, they place an ad of their own. Among the women it attracts is Helen Cruger (Ellen Barkin), and though she can’t be eliminated as a suspect, Keller begins a relationship with her. There’s terrific chemistry among the leads (Pacino earned a Golden Globe nomination for his performance), and this hit erotic thriller will keep you guessing until the very end.
