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 definite... read more

Voyeurism, fetishism and pornography collide in a frenzied, unabashedly psychosexual pastiche of "Vertigo" and "Rear Window". Whilst De Palma foregrounding of 1980s culture adds a new dimension of outre trashiness to the proceedings, the film exists on its own plane as an artefact of its time, albeit by translating images and styles as a register on what separates the contemporary from the past in... read more

“Voyeurism, fetishism and pornography collide in a frenzied, unabashedly psychosexual pastiche of "Vertigo" and "Rear Window". Whilst De Palma foregrounding of 1980s culture adds a new dimension of outre trashiness to the proceedings, the film exists on its own plane as an artefact of its time, albeit by translating images and styles as a register on what separates the contemporary from the past in terms of sex and murder. Although commenting on Hitchcock's erotic themes and De Palma's clear evocation of them is a thorny subject considering the latter's high art valuation by critics, "Body Double" is nevertheless a stylish, unsettling remnant of Hitchcockian imagery and psychological bent as viewed through the fervid sheen and perversions of Hollywood.” read more

Movies the giraffe watched in 2017: September (28 movies items)

"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"
