Nowadays, Brian de Palma is pretty much forgotten but back in the 70's and the 80's, he was a major movie director. Anyway, I always had a weak spot for this director and, in my opinion, this movie is easily one of his best. Apparently, Quentin Tarantino even said that this film is his favorite Brian De Palma movie and Tarantino cast John Travolta in ‘Pulp Fiction’ because he liked his perform... read more

Description: This stylish Brian DePalma thriller plays off the theme of the unsuspecting witness who discovers a crime and is thereby put in grave danger, but with a novel twist.

"Teknisesti parhaimpaa De Palmailua. Travolta myöskin ehkä uransa parhaassa terässä tuskailevana äänimiehenä.

Mahtavaa äänieditointia ja upea kohtaus missä travolta rakentaa elävän filmin kuvista. "
