MOVIE ADS: BRIAN DE PALMA
Mr. De Palma during an interview ( DP/30 )
I don't think Mr. De Palma has ever received the respect he deserves, and that's a shame.
My three favorite De Palma films are listed below....
DRESSED TO KILL.....
I love this movie.
It has an outstanding cast. Keith Gordon, Nancy Allen, Angie Dickinson, Michael Caine, and Dennis Franz.
It's not only creepy, it's also extremely beautiful to look at.
DRESSED TO KILL has been released on VHS, DVD, and BLU-RAY.
I think this is one of Mr. De Palma's best movies, and I love it very very much.
Nancy Allen is one of the most underrated actresses in the United States.
Ms. Allen turns her character into someone you instantly care about.
In my opinion, this is John Travolta's best performance to date.
John Lithgow is unforgettable as the assassin.
Dennis Franz is priceless.
I saw this movie the night it opened, and the same night I dreamt about it. In my dream the ending was different.
After all these years, it still hurts to watch the ending.
It was released on VHS and DVD.
Craig Wasson and Gregg Henry are outstanding.
Plus, you also have Deborah Shelton, Melanie Griffith, and Dennis Franz turning in great performances.
This is such a fun flick! I love the dreamy sequences, and all the dark humor.
As an added bonus, you get to see Barbara Crampton and Brinke Stevens. It's too bad Ms. Crampton didn't have a bigger part.
It's available on both, VHS and DVD.
I highly recommend all of these movies, especially BLOW OUT and DRESSED TO KILL.
