BODY DOUBLE

Double Feature with BODY HEAT

(1984) dir Brian De Palma w/Craig Wasson, Melanie Griffith, Gregg Henry, Deborah Shelton [114 min; DCP]
Brian De Palma’s obsession with Alfred Hitchcock results in this remarkable merger of Vertigo, Rear Window, and lurid 80s neo-noir. In the Hollywood Hills, a struggling actor (Wasson) eagerly watches his sexy neighbor while housesitting for a new friend but, when he witnesses her murder, he is drawn in as both a suspect and a potential next victim.

“Criticized on first release as being a dreadful Hitchcock knock-off, detractors have come over the years to embrace it as a salute to a genius by a genius…” Leo Racicot writes about BODY DOUBLE for Brattle Film Notes
