    Fun as only De Palma can be. Here he shines with the giallo and noir references. Some say it's more formulaic than his others and that it seems to lack personal spark. I agree. Femme Fatale is like a well oiled name dropping machine cloaked in gorgeous camerawork and stylistic flourishes. Maybe that's a bad thing but it's just so much fun I can't help but adore it. Maybe it's a guilty pleasure, maybe its something more. Sometimes watching De Palma's work feels like the cinematic equivalent of jerking myself off for two hours and giving myself a high five every time I spot a line or scene taken out of Vertigo or Rear Window or Mona Lisa or Suspiria. What does it say about me that I enjoy that as much as I do? 8 months ago

    A very odd movie, like it tough. Not spoling anything. 7/10, on IMDB it's just 6.2. Worth watching at least once. 6 years 6 months ago
