Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Body Double, while not his finest, is the best candidate as Brian De Palma's signature film.
Differant type of thriller
Off beat , color filled, full of twists thriller. I think you will enjoy it. I saw it in the theater when it first was released, owned it on laser now ITunes.
I think this movie is good for what it is. I saw it when it first came out in the 80's and it wasn't that bad. My advice is to rent it and judge for yourself. It has it's good moments.
It was a surprisingly suspenseful movie throughout but the ending was a letdown. When a director doesn't know how to finish, you get this kind of ending.
