Crazy Love

Genre: Documentary; Director: Dan Klores, Fisher Stevens; Release Date Limited: 06/01/2007; Runtime (in minutes): 92; MPAA Rating: PG-13; Distributor: Magnolia Pictures

A toxically fascinating true-crime/true-romance doc. In 1957, Linda Riss, a nice Jewish girl, fell for Burt Pugach, a nerd of a hustler, but when she broke free, he had lye thrown in her face, blinding her. Then he won her back. The film pierces tabloid reality in its anguished, bloody heart.
