Brian De Palma United States, 1978

Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Fury

I can see how, on the heels of Carrie, this looked like a vague, slow, lukewarm retread of old ideas. But four decades later, when prime era De Palma films are a limited resource, it's a fun Tuesday night, where concerns about shaky plotting or muddled psychodrama can get tarted up in a seductive surface. Bonus points for evil John Cassavetes.
