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. Even though Brian De Palma is nowadays pretty much forgotten, I always had a weak spot for his movies, especially his earlier work.

"20.2. Brian De Palman Vertigo-mukaelmassa on ongelmana tasan sama juttu kuin lähes kaikissa näkemissäni ohjaajan teoksissa. Pätevästä teknisestä toteutuksestaan huolimatta Obsession perustuu lähes totaalisesti lopputwistiinsä, ja De Palman 70- ja 80-lukujen psykoanalyysit on hyvin pitkälti todettu joko tieteen keinoin tai yleisten asenteenmuutosten myötä vanhentuneiksi ja jopa loukkaaviksi. Ratkaisu tuntuu lähes joka kerta olevan tasoa "pahis olikin sairas perverssi, joka tykkää "

"Pienen De Palma -sarjani paras elokuva oli yllättäen vähiten suitsutettu Obsession. Tässä New Orleansiin sekä Firenzeen sijoittuvassa de facto Vertigo-uusintaversiossa De Palma ui niin syvälle hitcocklaisuuden liiveihin ettei voida puhua enää vain pastissista. De Palma yksinkertaisesti teki Hitchcockin elokuvan ja mikäs siinä, kun lopputulos oli parempi kuin yksikään Hitchcockin itse tekemä Hitchcock-elokuva viiteentoista vuoteen. Lisäpisteitä John Lithgowin hävyttömän maireas"
