A bluesy thriller with a clever though not overly complicated premise. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- A lugubrious imitation of a second-rate television movie, over-produced and over-cast.
New York Times
Price and director Harold Becker build in enough jumps and scares and good red herrings to be satisfying ... Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Superb, steamy thriller that keeps you guessing till the very end.
Sunday Times (Australia)
...A lowdown, gorgeously lurid thriller....Pacino is terrific in it: vital, charming, funny, torchy and touching...
Rating: 3.5/4 -- Sea of Love has its Cinemax lapses in taste, but most films of the genre lack sophistication from which to lapse. Full Review
Film Freak Central
Rating: 4/5 -- Sea of Love is unrestrained and completely hypnotic... Full Review
Graffiti With Punctuation
New York cop Frank Keller is on the trail of a serial killer who murders men answering personal ads in the classifieds. The ads, written in poetic couplets, are quite romantic, but those who meet their mysterious author end up dead in their own apartments with a 45rpm copy of the '50s single "Sea of Love" on their turntables. Keller, suspecting the murderer is a woman, places his own advertisement in the paper and sets up dinner dates (one every half-hour) with the respondents; he lifts their fingerprints from their wine glasses and matches them against those of the murderer, taken from the crime scene. But Keller's scheme fails when he falls in love with one of the suspects and refuses to check her prints. With each passing day their romance grows hotter... and the growing evidence keeps pointing more strongly to her guilt.
