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

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