ReviewSource Variety
Review Chronicling a bizarre saga of glamour, obsessive love, grotesque violence and miscellaneous weirdness that has entertained New York City tabloid readers over four decades, "Crazy Love" lands soundly in the stranger-than-fiction realm. Dan Klores' straightforward, conventional docu style couldn't make anything special of the uninspired subject of his debut feature "The Boys of 2nd Street Park," but subsequent "Ring of Fire: The Emile Griffith Story" had a powerful true story to tell -- which is even more the case here...Still flamboyant-looking despite advanced age and now completely blind, Linda is a take-no-prisoners interviewee. Burt is a disturbing one: Even now he seems to feel no remorse. Veteran journo Jimmy Breslin is the most amusingly insightful among the various friends, associates and observers interviewed...There's no lack of vivid archival footage to underline the story's bizarrely public nature, including the protags' appearances on "The Mike Douglas Show" and "Geraldo." While the competent filmmaking package lacks much of its own personality, the sheer fascinating strangeness of the people documented could earn the pic a minor cult following a la "Grey Gardens."

Review What a story! The expression "truth is stranger than fiction" was tailor-made for Dan Klores' riveting and wildly entertaining documentary Crazy Love. This is a true-life tale of love gone awry packed with enough Grade-A dirt to satisfy even the most rabid tabloid enthusiast. But instead of sensationalizing the lurid saga, Klores deftly allows its gripping details to unfold in classic romantic thriller style, affording viewers the twisted pleasure of discovery...Klores also weaves in interviews with a memorable array of old friends, family members, and other associates of both Burt and Linda. This gabby gallery is as amusing for what they have to say about the couple's insane history as they are for their blunt, New Yawk-accented deliveries. Even famed columnist Jimmy Breslin weighs in with a few inimitable comments. In addition, Klores makes vivid use of a wide variety of snapshots, headlines, TV news coverage, and some decent re-enactment footage, as well as a spot-on selection of vintage hits like "Linda," "You've Really Got a Hold On Me," and "Burning Love," that add to the film's time capsule feel.
