Nicolas Roeg is at his most inventive in this suspenseful erotic psychological drama.
The visionary filmmaker behind “Performance,” “Walkabout,” “Don’t Look Now,” and “The Man Who Fell To Earth” reached his peak of cinematic daring with “Bad Timing: A Sensual Obsession.”
Art Garfunkel represents an unbalanced academic narcissist who exploits a romantic interlude with Milena, an ostensibly bi-polar adulterer (Theresa Russell) while visiting cold-war Vienna.
Jealousy and tortured distance are at the heart of the couple's dysfunctional relationship.
Garfunkel's psychoanalyst Dr. Alex Linden would make an effective serial killer. Perhaps he's working up to it.
"Bad Timing" is twisted, in a good way.
Love, romance, and sex are overrated.
Rated R. 123 mins.
