A good movie

1 year ago at Oct 28 12:07
To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Still, I remember very well when I saw the damned thing. Indeed, I had invited a friend of mine who was also a major movie buff and we ended watching up some movies literally through the whole night. We started at 21:00 in the evening and ended on 06:00 the next day so it was definite... read more

"First viewing - Sept. 19th De Palma turned 70 this month, so I wanted to watch something of his I hadn't seen yet. As luck would have it this is one of the few films of his that's on Showbox, so I took a chance with it. Body Double clearly owes a huge debt to Rear Window as it's basically an updated version of that film as filtered through De Palma's cinematic sensibilities. It's consistently entertaining, and I love the ways it messed with my expectations along the way. The only thing I was ki"

"24.2. (DVD) Olihan Kuolema tulee kahdesti sekä Brian De Palmaan heränneen innostukseni että 35-millisenä elokuvaa pyöritettyäni nousseen mielenkiinnon vuoksi sitten pakko katsoa. Tällä kertaa ainakin Takaikkunaa pastissoiva tuotos on epälooginen ja hyvin hämärä, mutta samalla filmihulluuden liekkiini puhaltava oudoke, jonka tunnelma pysyy kasassa jo nähdyistä kliimaksikohdista huolimatta loppuun saakka. Jostain syystä bourbonpäisen tulkinta on tässäkin filkassa pahasti hakuses"

A good movie

“To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Still, I remember very well when I saw the damned thing. Indeed, I had invited a friend of mine who was also a major movie buff and we ended watching up some movies literally through the whole night. We started at 21:00 in the evening and ended on 06:00 the next day so it was definitely my biggest binge-watching night ever. Anyway, at the time, he suggested we should check this movie and I’m glad he did. Basically, even though Brian De Palma might have become famous with ‘Scarface’, it is actually with this kind of steamy thrillers that the guy basically built up his career. Apparently, the whole thing was apparently dismissed by the critics when it was released but I th” read more
