A very good movie

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

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. Jack is a sound-man who works on "Grade-B" horror movies. Late one evening, he is "sampling" sounds for use on his movies, when he hears something unexpected through his sound equipment and records it. Curiosity gets the better of him when the media become involved, and he begins to unravel the pieces of a nefarious conspiracy. As he struggles to survive against his shadowy enemies and expose the truth, he doesn't know who he can trust.

My movie year 2017 (296 movies items)

"28.1. (DVD) John Travolta kiitää autollaan poukkoilemaan pitkin paraatia, aiheuttaa kaaoksen ja rysäyttää näyteikkunasta läpi. Tästä hyvästä hänet jätetään vartioimatta ambulanssiin, josta scientologi pian pakeneekin. Jälkiseuraamukset riehumisesta jäävät myös saamatta: moisia ei tule niin virallisen lain kouran kuin näkymättömämmän likvidointiporukankaan toimesta. Tässä oli paljon hienoja julisteita ja positiivisena puolena pelkojeni vastaisesti siirapiton, nokkela "
