  1. Gonzelush Thompson's rating of the film Blow Out

    Și mai marii dau prin străchini. Brian de Palma în forma unui urs neîndemnatic din magazinul de porțelanuri. O bilă jumate pentru Travolta, încă una jumate pentru sunet.

  2. LibertyCapz's rating of the film Blow Out

    Pretty cool and well crafted thriller. Probably now one of my favorite De Palma films.

  3. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Blow Out

    A great Brian dePalma movie that makes sound as important as the visual images. Travolta does one of his more engaging and memorable roles as a sound recordist while the diabolical and crazy John Lithgow steal scenes here. A devastating ending and brutal climax add to the power of the film.

  4. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Blow Out

    Rewatch. This has always been the De Palma I would recommend to 'just anybody': It's probably his most fun, the violence is mostly implied, the plot actually makes sense, and it contains all the meta stuff that he's obsessed with (and happily the meta never draws too much attention to itself).

  5. fashionlolito's rating of the film Blow Out

    sound-mixing portrait with a perfect sound-editing

  8. Stefano Campagna's rating of the film Blow Out

  9. Skinnedteen's rating of the film Blow Out

    Berberian Sound Studio was definitely inspired by Blow Out, which is inspired by Blow Up. All so meta and all so intoxicating! 6 stars might be appropriate

  10. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Blow Out

    A nicely downbeat late-cycle paranoia conspiracy by a master magpie fluidly marshalling his borrowings. The myriad cross-references occasionally obscure the textural merits of the film with too many political and media signposts, none of which are profound - the recurring 'patriotic' colour palette is laid on thick. However it's brilliantly constructed - conducted even - and repays choice revisits for its sour view.

  11. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Blow Out

    It's so relevant at the moment with everything going on in the world. Highly intense. Travolta in his best role, and the score is excellent - reminds me at times of the other great 1981 action film, Thief (Michael Mann). That being said, Nancy Allen is wasted and you sometimes think, 'she can't really be that dumb'. Regardless, it's still a special film - with a beautiful fireworks shot.

  12. FISCHER's rating of the film Blow Out

    Un "remake" sonore du film d'Antonioni : "Blow-up" qui reste un superbe polar... www.cinefiches.com

  13. Madeleine Davis's rating of the film Blow Out

  14. hemachandra's rating of the film Blow Out

    Brian De Palma, with Vilmos Zsigmond behind the camera, reconstructs the sounds of Blow Out in its images. This film about how much you don't see, not what you can't hear. It's a duplicitous thriller. Plus, it has an ending for ages.

  15. Louisa Savignon's rating of the film Blow Out

    3.5 // first half is fantastic but then falls into ilogical and questionable twists. brianzito perde a mão and we're left with a feeling of "it could have been better". the dark feeling got stuck on me, though

  16. LauraPalmer's rating of the film Blow Out

    Rewatched and re-loved. BRIAN, I LOVE YOU.

  17. samba direito's rating of the film Blow Out

  18. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Blow Out

    I will never understand the attraction to Brian De Palma. To me he is one of the most generic filmmakers out there. Ooh, look! He did a 360 camera pan! He wants to be Godard and Antonioni but he doesn't have the capacity. So we get this ridiculous Hollywood generic pablum that's supposed to resemble 'Blow Up'. Where are the goddamn clowns? He has no imagination.

  19. truffraud's rating of the film Blow Out

    a stylish neon homage to noir. travolta shines.

  20. Khach Aloyan's rating of the film Blow Out

  21. Atzin Ortiz González's rating of the film Blow Out

    Blow-out is like the mischievous and inventive son of Antonioni and Hitchcock: a knock-out thriller & a poignant meditation on cinema with a stunning mise-en-scene.

  22. Diogo Monteiro's rating of the film Blow Out

  23. Ryan Swen's rating of the film Blow Out

    "America" filtered through devastating analog.
