Brian DePalma

I could (and at some point might) turn this blog into a prolonged examination of this body of work. In the interests of time, both my own and yours, I'm keeping it simple. For now. Even if I don't expand on these ratings in the short term, I will monitor the comments and make applicable explanations or clarifications as warranted. Longer reviews of the first and last film on this list are available by clicking on the links embedded in their respective titles.

I was not surprised to see that I feel into the 2 and 3 star category---after all, I like Hall AND Oates, but Dressed to Kill was one of the first movies to affect my everyday life (I still check elevators before I get in) and I watch Snake Eyes every time it's on--
