Fashion designer Joanna Crane leads a double life. By night she is China Blue, a sex worker who has attracted the unwanted attention of two men: a sexually frustrated private detective hired by Joanna’s employees to spy on her, and a psychopathic priest in possession of a murderous sex toy.
Quite simply one of the most controversial figures in British cinema, Ken Russell (The Devils) fashions a complicated love triangle of warring desires into one of the great erotic thrillers of the ’80s. Kathleen Turner and Anthony Perkins risk everything on the neon-lit, sleazy streets of LA.
