| "Love On The Run" All Good Girls Love Bad Boys. Even Good Girl Attorneys!
I saw "Love On The Run" when it came out over 30 years ago. I fell in love with it. I recorded it from t.v., own the VHS tape, and had it converted to a DVD. Yes, the movie has many flaws. It's choppy. It's sloppy. Its disclaimer is disingenuous, since it was based on the Mary Evans/Tim Kirk case in 1983. Yet I rated it an 8. Here's why: 1) As a social worker and a psychologist, I have treated many attractive, intelligent, and seductive patients. As a frequently lonely single woman who met lots of "normal" guys, the "not-normal" guys were indeed tempting. Plus often cuter, smarter, and cooler than my acceptable gene pool. The mind wanders..Fortunately, I married my soul mate. 2) Convicts make it their business to read people. Whatever his motives were, he read Diana very well and at least acted like she was important. No one else gave a damn. 3) Was it love? To Diana, yes. She felt understood, sexy, and got the courage to get real. Sean? As much as a sociopath can, he cared for her. He felt loved, and intrigued by her. 4) Stephanie Zimbalist and Alec Baldwin were poignant, authentic, and had great chemistry. I wish there was more time spent pre-breakout on how Diana, a repressed, insecure, vulnerable doormat decided to choose such a counter-intuitive choice. In particular, she just lost her dad, whose death gave her a lot of free time. Get past the 1980's production, the mediocre directing, and focus on Sean and Diana, especially Diana. Pomonok
