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

Moviewatcher122's 2014 Film Diary: November (31 movies items)

"November 30 "Jesus, that's terrible." "That's a terrible scream. Jack, what cat did you have to strangle to get that?" "The one you hired. That's her scream." "You mean you didn't dub that?" What a movie this was. It had a great plot, great acting and I was just invested into this movie from start to finish. It isn't a perfect movie, but the ending was just so great that it almost made me bump up my score. It's still a great movie and it's one of Brian DePalma's best movies."

"Teknisesti parhaimpaa De Palmailua. Travolta myöskin ehkä uransa parhaassa terässä tuskailevana äänimiehenä. Käsikirjoituksen loppupuoli vähän rakoilee ja Lithgowin sekoilut myös vähän oudoksuttavia, mutta loppuratkaisu ehkä vähän helpotti oloani. Mahtavaa äänieditointia ja upea kohtaus missä travolta rakentaa elävän filmin kuvista. "
