What you may need to know
1. Brian De Palma, director of some of the most brilliantly deranged Hollywood movies ever made, is back! BACK! BAAAAAAACK!
2. He may have seen a Hitchcock movie or two. And might be collaborating with Daft Punk.
3. Classic De Palma: Carrie (1976), Dressed To Kill (1980), Scarface (1983), The Untouchables (1987) and Carlito’s Way (1993), for starters. Cult De Palma: try Phantom Of The Paradise (1974), Blow Out (1981), Body Double (1984) and Raising Cain (1992), for starters. Dud De Palma: Try Bonfire Of The Vanities (1990) or The Black Dahila (2006). Better still – don’t.
4. This is an EROTIC THRILLER. Girls kiss each other. There are knives. It’s a remake of a French movie, naturally.
Broadsheet Prognosis: Steady on, granddad.
Release Date: Xtravision shelves by Friday week.
