    This movie should be in at least one toplist, I'd say... 1 year 1 month ago

    DePalma offers a synthesis of two of his constant themes, voyeurism and the double, while at the same time weaves in the form of the film the interplay between dream and reality (there is enough basis that the whole story can be construed as a self-empowering dream of the main character in order to overcome his inhibiting claustrophobia). Stylistically it is very accomplished as the silent 20min surveillance sequence shows and the idea of the porno industry mirroring the Hollywood industry is ingenious. Unlike his previous thrillers (Blow Up, Dressed to Kill), the psychology of its characters is rather neglected to foreground its themes and this somehow reduces its resonance. Nevertheless, it may not be top drawer DePalma, but is still one of his most accomplished films and certainly one not for the literal-minded who will find it preposterous. 4 years 10 months ago

    I totally love this film. I constantly think of the frankie goes to hollywood obligatory music video scene and the worlds longest following someone sequence. Theres just something about it i love. Brian De Palma is up there in my favourite directors and that was before i seen this gem. 1 year 8 months ago
