With ''Body Heat,'' the steamiest, most thoroughly satisfying melodrama about love, lust and greed to be seen since Billy Wilder's ''Double Indemnity'' and Tay Garnett's ''The Postman Always Rings Twice'' forget about this year's lethargic remake , Lawrence Kasdan, heretofore known as a screenwriter ''Raiders of the Lost Ark,'' ''Continental Divide'' , suddenly emerges as a member of the American directing elite. I can't remember a film debut to equal it, that is, when a director has made a first film as fully and intelligently realized as ''Body Heat. Because ''Body Heat'' opened here in late August, during the vacation period, I've just now caught up with it. Nothing I'd heard about it in the interim had quite prepared me for the vitality of Mr. Kasdan's original screenplay, nor for his remarkable treatment of it as its director. Most directors work up to their first major hits, those films that establish them as directors of particular, one-of-a-kind talents. Kasdan has made the big time.
